Serena Williams is Supported by Husband Alexis Ohanian at Brand Genius Awards 2018

Serena Williams and husband Alexis Ohanian step out in style for the 2018 Adweek’s Brand Genius Awards on Wednesday night (November 7) at Cipriani in New York City.

Also stepping out to support Serena was Vogue‘s Editor-in-Chief and her longtime friend Anna Wintour.

During the event, Anna – who was presented the award last year – took to the stage to honor Serena with a touching tribute.

“When I first met Serena Williams, she was a tennis champion of unbelievable perseverance,” Anna began. “Now, at 37, she is still a tennis champion of unbelievable persistence and power—also, a wife and a mother and a role model for millions of women.”

Anna went on to commend Serena on her accomplishments on and off the tennis court.

“Because she’s always out in front, she’s often the first to be jumped on in moments of tension, as we saw during the U.S. Open,” Anna continued. “What made me the most proud in that moment was the way Serena celebrated the victory of Naomi Osaka, a young player who grew up in awe of Serena. It was a win larger than the match.”

“She has always been a No. 1 tennis player,” Anna concluded. “But in the year of Serena, and with this award tonight, we celebrate an even more impressive feat: becoming a woman far greater than her multitude of victories.”

Serena Williams Reveals Why She Won't Be Celebrating Daughter Alexis Olympia's First Birthday

Serena Williams‘ daughter Alexis Olympia will be turning a year old this weekend – but there won’t be any party marking the occasion.

The 36-year-old tennis star – who is currently in the midst of the 2018 US Open – recently revealed that she and her husband Alexis Ohanian will not be celebrating their daughter’s birthday when she turns one on Saturday, September 1.

“Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays,” Serena said at a press conference. “We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that.”

If you didn’t know, followers of the Jehovah’s Witness church don’t believe in celebrating birthdays or holidays “because we believe that such celebrations displease God” – according to the church’s official website. Birthdays also have pagan roots, and according to the religion, the Bible “condemns the use of magic, divination, spiritism, or ‘anything like this.’”

Last year in her interview with Vogue, Serena opened up about what the religion means to her.

“Being a Jehovah’s Witness is important to me, but I’ve never really practiced it and have been wanting to get into it,” Serena said. “Alexis didn’t grow up going to any church, but he’s really receptive and even takes the lead. He puts my needs first.”
