Alexis Ohanian Subtly Shades His Wife’s “Rival”



We all love Serena Williams, but her husband Alexis Ohanian is undoubtedly her biggest fan.


Even for people who don’t watch tennis, a majority of the world definitely know two things: that Serena is the GOAT, and that she has a longstanding “rivalry” with Maria Sharapova–despite the fact that the latter hasn’t beat Serena since 2004.

LONDON, ENGLAND – July 09: Alexis Ohanian, husband of Serena Williams of the United States, cheers from the stands during her match against Alison Riske of the United States in the Ladies Singes Quarter Finals match on Centre Court during the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at Wimbledon on July 09, 2019 in London, England.

Throughout the years, both athletes have said some shady things about one another, but Sharapova is known for taking shots at Williams. Just a few years ago, in 2017, Maria released a memoir that focused a lot on her rival, at one point claiming that Serena hates her for being “skinny,” later calling her body, “intimidating”…even though Sharapova is actually 5 inches taller.



Beside her history of not-so-subtly shading Serena, Maria also has a history of using some banned substances. Maria got a two-year ban from tennis in 2016 after she was caught using performance-enhancing drugs.


That brings us to present day, as Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova faced off at the US Open on Monday, in their first match against each other in over 3 years. This also makes it their first match since Sharapova’s PED ban.


Serena’s husband Alexis was in the audience, of course, and when he arrived to the match, he was wearing a simple black jacket. But later on, sometime in the middle of the game, Ohanian unbuttoned his jacket to reveal a D.A.R.E. shirt underneath.

If you’re somehow unfamiliar, D.A.R.E. is the drug education program that almost every child of the ’90s was put through in school, mostly known for their famous slogan, “D.A.R.E. to keep kids off drugs.”

So, a shirt about keeping kids off drugs, Serena playing a match against someone who was recently banned for their drug usage….you see where we’re going with this.


With the undyingly petty support of her husband radiating from the stands, Serena won in two sets with a score of 6-1, 6-1 — which marks her 19th consecutive victory against Maria Sharapova.

The subtlest of drags are always the most efficient and Alexis’ T-shirt choice was a beautiful cherry on top for Serena’s win.
