Serena Williams' husband Alexis Ohanian thrilled about Netflix's new golf documentary series after "great job" with tennis equivalent Break Point
Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian have certainly amazed fans with their fondness for golf. While Williams recently starred as a golfer in a Super Bowl commercial, a new documentary about the sport has caught the attention of Ohanian.
It is no secret that Williams’ husband is an avid sports watcher. The internet entrepreneur was a frequent attendee at the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s tennis matches and made his love for soccer known by investing in the Nation Women’s Soccer League franchise Angel City F.C.
Ohanian has now expressed his excitement about the upcoming release of Netflix’s new golf documentary series “Full Swing,” created by the makers of Formula 1: Drive to Survive and tennis’ Break Point. The series is scheduled for release on February 15 and is said to follow the lives of a diverse group of professional golfers – on and off the golf course.
Serena Williams’ husband shared Netflix's trailer for "Full Swing" with his followers on social media and stated that he was optimistic about the documentary’s success.
“This is gonna be good,” Alexis Ohanian tweeted to his followers.
He further stated his case about the golf show being a good watch by acknowledging the recently released Netflix tennis documentary series Break Point and applauding the creators for doing a great job with it.
“They did a great job with Break Point, too,” said the Reddit co-founder and Williams’ husband.
"Break Point should help them know better” – Serena Williams ex-coach on Netflix tennis documentary’s purpose
While Serena Williams hung her racquet after the 2022 US Open, her long-time coach Patrick Mouratoglou hasn’t let her absence impact his desire to help tennis players discover their potential.
In early 2022, Mouratoglou joined former World No. 1 Simona Halep’s team and is now included as one of the coaches on rising teenage tennis star Holger Rune’s team. The French coach has also mentored many other top young players, including Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Mouratoglou also featured in Netflix’s tennis documentary series Break Point, where he enlightened the general audience with some valuable insights about the upcoming players and the sport.
Speaking about the comparison in the popularity of the Big-3 against that of the younger players, Williams’ ex-coach stated that to make lesser-known players a household name was bound to take some time and noted that Break Point would be instrumental in bringing more attention to the younger generation of talent.
"Give the next Gen some time. The big 3 haven’t been loved from day 1," he said on Twitter, adding "Break Point on Netflix should help know them better."
The first part of Break Point was released on January 13, 2023, and features 'lesser-known' players like Felix Auger Aliassime, Casper Ruud, Paula Badosa, Ons Jabeur, Taylor Fritz, Maria Sakkari, Matteo Berrettini, Ajla Tomljanovic, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios. Meanwhile, the second half of the two-part first season is expected to be released in June 2023.
