Venus came out victorious, but Serena (opens in new tab) brought the real winner along with her: her baby daughter, one-year-old Alexis Olympia (opens in new tab).

Alexis Olympia (opens in new tab) stole the show, cheering for both her mom and her aunt from her place in the stands with her dad, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian (opens in new tab)Serena (opens in new tab) may have lost the exhibition match, but the tennis great clearly knows she won the baby lottery, because she couldn't stop gushing about Alexis Olympia (opens in new tab) after the match.

"That’s a classy baby, you know, she applauds both Mommy and my opponent who happened to be her auntie,” Serena said of her one-year-old's cheering, according to Sport360. "That was the highlight, seeing her clap, it was so cute."

Ohanian shared footage of the adorable applause on Instagram Friday.

"👏🏻 @olympiaohanian is such a good sport she clapped for every point — whether it was mama @serenawilliams or auntie @venuswilliams," Ohanian wrote (opens in new tab) in his caption of the incredibly cute video on Instagram (opens in new tab).

Today, Serena (opens in new tab) took to Instagram with a Baby Alexis update of her own, sharing a snap of her daughter in the middle of what can only be described as a downright impressive yawn at the airport after the family traveled back from the match in Abu Dhabi.

"#thismama was hoping @olympiaohanian would get some sleep but @realqaiqai kept her up the whole flight. #momlife," she captioned the cute pic.
