Olympia sat courtside cheering for her mother with her dad Alexis Ohanian throughout the event. The toddler mimicked her mother’s outfit and paid homage to her by sporting white beads at the bottom of her braids, which were reminiscent to the ones Williams wore when she won her very first U.S. Open in 1999.
