The most successful female tennis player of all time also posed for a picture with fiancée Alexis Ohanian, who came dressed in a leather jacket and jeans -- not exactly 1950s, but if the missus is not complaining, well we better not say anything J

35-year-old Serena and 34-year-old Alexis are expecting their first child later this year.
