Serena Williams was hard at work during a training session in Perth, Australia at the RAC Arena. 

She seemed to be enjoying practice as she cools off in her downtime before her next tournament.

But some on social media pointed out that Serena appeared to be looking extra hard at one of her tennis parents. Some suggested that Serena appeared ready to "risk it all" with the man.

But Serena's not in Australia alone. Her husband Alexis and their daughter accompanied the tennis superstar on her trip down under.


Earlier this month at Art Basel, the sports icon —Serena— told PEOPLE that longtime friend, Meghan Markle hasn’t changed one bit — despite juggling her busy new role as a duchess while being pregnant for the first time.

“I’m like, ‘How are you?’ and she’s like, ‘No, how are you?’ and I’m like, ‘You’re so sweet, but I’m really asking – how are YOU?’ ” said Serena. “I’m like, ‘Meghan, stop being so nice…you’re the pregnant one, aren’t you supposed to have hormones, why are you so sweet?’ But that’s always been her.”

Williams, who welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia with husband Alexis Ohanian in Sept. 2017, also shared that while she is giving the Duchess of Sussex plenty of advice from one new mom to a soon-to-be parent, Meghan “still gives me more advice.”
