Serena Williams celebrates her ‘bride-to-be’ niece on fun family trip to Mexico
Serena Williams has been making the most of her time since her decision to ‘step away from tennis’. The tennis legend was recently spotted in Mexico with his family on what appeared to be a ‘women only’ trip ahead of his niece Justus Bobbitt’s wedding.
Williams recalled the highlights of the holiday, revealing she met fans, saw one of the Seven Wonders of the World and celebrated with her niece under the moon, as she shared a series of posts on her Instagram from beach vacation. .
“About last weekend. Mexico was great. I met fans who sang teacup songs with me. Saw one of the 7 wonders of the world. But especially celebrated the future bride. Even the moon has come! All grown up, Justus, fun,” she said in a social media post.
The American tennis star also posted a video of herself dancing around a fire pit while singing music icon Selena’s song “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.”
“I love my little bride so much. So much that I thought I was Selena for a while and not Serena. I could never do her justice. All grown up,” she joked.
Williams’ daughter Olympia, her sister Venus Williams and Isha Price were also seen on the trip.
Serena Williams is focusing on her venture capital firm Serena Ventures
Serena Williams has been a busy woman since playing the last game of her career at the US Open 2022. Among other things, the 23-time Grand Slam champion, who founded a venture capital firm called “Serena Ventures” in 2014, now focuses on supporting various startups.
Serena Ventures’ mission is to invest in startups whose insights and innovations level the playing field for women and people of color. Williams’ investment firm has backed numerous startups such as Masterclass, Impossible Foods, Daily Harvest, Calico AI, Chat Desk, and Foody, to name a few.
Most recently, the 41-year-old backed a Nigerian data and information company ‘Stears’ in a $3.3m seed funding round led by MaC Venture Capital.
In his farewell to tennis writing for Vogue, Williams explained her new role as a businesswoman.
“In my own life, the balance has slowly shifted towards Serena Ventures. I always say I’m a sponge: at night I go to bed and squeeze myself in so that the next day I can take in as much new information as I can. I can. Every morning I get so excited to walk down to my desk and hop on Zooms and start reviewing presentations from companies we’re considering investing in,” Serena Williams wrote.
“We are a small, growing company of six people scattered between Florida, where I primarily live, Texas and California. I started investing nine years ago, and I really fell in love with the early stage, qu ‘It’s pre-seed funding, where you only invest in an idea, or a seed, where the idea has already been turned into a product,’ she added.
