Serena Williams experiences bittersweet emotions involving sister and daughter

Serena had one helluva weekend.

NEW YORK — It’s been a bittersweet Labor Day weekend for Serena Williams and it has everything to do with family. On Friday, the 36-year-old tennis icon beat the snot out of sister Venus Williams in the third round of the U.S. Open. In front of a record crowd of 70,162 at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Serena equaled the biggest ass-kicking ever of her rival sibling — winning 6-1, 6-2 in a measly one hour and 12 minutes. Had this been a boxing match, the referee would’ve stopped the fight.

“I think it’s by far the best match I ever played against her,” Serena said of the bout. “I played much better tonight than I have since I started this journey on my way back.” 

Less than 24 hours later, Serena savored a special moment with infant daughter Alexis Olympia on her first birthday. But, there were no balloons, no cake and no ice cream because… “We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that,” Serena, 36, told reporters at the press conference.

No cake?

No ice cream?

WTF?

Instead of being encircled by loved ones and blowing out her first candle, little Alexis spent her initial anniversary viewing mom’s tennis highlights on ESPN. Anyway.. after learning Serena’s tendentious birthday perspective, yours truly visited JW.org, the official Jehovah Witness website.

Damn, Serena’s 100% correct.

Church members prohibit the practice of birthday soirees because not only do they “displease God” but they have pagan roots. Jehovah Witnesses also forswear the commemoration of holidays like Christmas, Easter and Halloween and they won’t attend wedding ceremonies of those outside their religion.

In other words, if you’re Baptist, you can forget it. They ain’t coming.

As contentious as some of this stuff sounds, being a Jehovah’s witness is nothing new to Serena. If you recall, she and Venus converted their faith in the early ’80s. Also, if you haven’t noticed, Serena thanks Jehovah after every tennis match. No wonder she wins all the time.

She has God helping her.

What about Alexis Ohanian, Serena’s millionaire husband?

He’s apparently a J-Witness too. Serena must be puttin’ it down between the sheets because it takes some addictive nookie to inveigle a dude to espouse your faith. “Alexis didn’t grow up going to any church,” Serena said. “But he’s really receptive and even takes the lead. He puts my needs first.”

With a net worth of $10 million, he can afford to.

    look at her muscles…… jehovah dont make women who look like that… she’s on steroids

    People who say Serena is on roids, obviously doesn’t know the build of a black woman. Several black women built like her are walking around.

    No one says the giant Russian or swedish woman are on roids

  7. A very sad religious ruling. Would love to see her blowing her candle in her birhdday cake and have fun playing with other little kids. The beautifu llittle girl deserves a memorable happy celebration, something she’ll look back when she’ll be an adult.

  8. Such a powerful black woman

  9. Venus GAVE the win to her. Disgusted. No mention of her HUSBAND, either. Poor guy looked so unappreciated in the stands.

    Williams sisters are gorgeous!

  11. You can have a baby out of wedlock, but can’t have a birthday party for your beautiful baby, you have not lived by the rules, not judging, but get real Serena, you can do all the wrong things that breaks the bible rules but can’t have party for your 1yr old daughter. hipicredical.

  12. I do not believe in religion, I believe in God. We sin day in and day out, we try to live by His rules, but often fail. So do not tell me what your religion does not accept. Do not get me wrong, I love you just as I love everyone, but can not deal with religion.

  13. I am confused, I thought Jehovah Witnesses did not believe in interracial marriages and haven’t I seen Serena and her husband dressed up for a Halloween party that they attended please correct me if I’m wrong. I think Alexis Sr should have told Serena that we are celebrating our daughter’s birthday on my behave unless he is restricted by some religious beliefs himself. Special occasions, like birthdays and holidays I think are very important to celebrate in a small child life. I know my husband as a child said he never received anything on his birthday but he grew up poor. So every year I celebrate his birthday with a big party and he always appreciate it. God bless

    Serena back on the prowl..great to see her take some time off the juice pre and post partum. Now the hormones….I mean opponents won’t know what hit them!

  15. Change your religion…Yes I also agree it seems a bit hypocritical to have a baby first , then get married. Your religion should have taught you to remain a virgin until your wedding night. Then you would have had a truly covenant experience. Since you
    chose to fornicate before you were married ..break this silly rule a celebrate your babies first birthday and give God the glory! broke a
