Alexis Olympia is a tennis star in the making!

On Tuesday, Serena Williams shared a sweet snap on Instagram of herself closely watching her 3-year-old daughter, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian, playing tennis on the family's at-home tennis court.

In the photo, the 23-time Grand Slam champion wore a mask as she stood behind Olympia, who prepared to swing at an incoming tennis ball with her own racket while dressed in an adorable Nike tennis outfit, which included a matching black-and-white skirt and long sleeve shirt.

"Turn, back, reach, head, follow through," Williams, 39, captioned the post.

Williams took her daughter to her very first tennis lesson back in October and documented the big day on her Instagram Story.

"I signed Olympia up for tennis lessons," Williams revealed, going on to tease, "Don't even start with me because I'm not giving her tennis lessons, I signed her up for some."

"But the lady has no idea that it's my daughter, so we'll see how that goes," the mom of one said with a smile. "I'm not a pushy mom, but I know how I like techniques, I want to make sure she's good at teaching Olympia some techniques."

The renowned athlete then held up the tennis racket her daughter would be using. "Look, Olympia got a cute racket like mine," Williams said while also cradling Olympia's favorite Qai Qai doll.

Over the summer, Williams brought Olympia out to the court as her mini doubles partner and shared photos from their adorable training session to Instagram.

Dressed in a purple athletic outfit that perfectly matched her mom, Olympia assumed a crouching position while waiting for the ball to come her way and held her racket like a pro.

"Six pack baby stroooooong ❤️," Olympia's proud dad Alexis wrote in response to a post on Olympia's Instagram account, which featured the mother-daughter duo posing on the tennis court.
