Serena Williams has revealed her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a poem on the social media website.
Williams, a 22-time Grand Slam champion, stunned fans with her post in the r/isaidyes forum, which is used to share tales of marriage proposals.
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage awaited. Destination: Rome … back to where our stars first collided,” the 35-year-old American wrote.
“Down on 1 knee. He said four words. And/r/isaidyes,”
Ohanian confirmed the news on his Facebook page, simply writing: “She said yes.”
Williams equalled Steffi Graf’s Open Era record of 22 Grand Slams with victory at Wimbledon, and will continue to hunt down Margaret Court (24) in the all-time list in 2017.
