Serena Williams Engaged

Serena Williams has announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, via, naturally, a Reddit post. 

The tennis great wrote, I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own charming. Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.

Williams and Ohanian had been dating for about a year. Williams, considered by many to be one of the greatest American athletes of all-time, holds 38 Grand Slam titles, including 22 singles crowns. Her most recent major victory was at Wimbledon earlier this year and she’s currently preparing for next month’s Australian Open.
