Nike to name New Headquarters Building After Serena Williams

Nike to name New Headquarters Building After Serena Williams

Her sister, Venus Williams, was involved in a June crash that killed a 78-year-old man.

Alexis was born back in September, and Serena is anxious about when she should stop breastfeeding.

Williams, 36, recently married Alexis Ohanian, 34, the co-founder of the popular website, in New Orleans, and the pair had recently returned from their honeymoon. The athletic giant revealed that it is naming a yet-to-be-constructed building at its world headquarters after Williams.

There will be one building named after 23-time Grand Slam victor Serena Williams, another will be named after two-time Olympic gold medal runner Sebastian Coe and a fitness center will be named after five-time national champion winning coach Mike Krzyzewski. They will name three of those buildings after important athletes and coaches, including two-time Olympic gold medal-winning track star Sebastian Coe, and legendary Duke coach, Mike Krzyzewski. Plus, a new parking garage celebrates New York City and its heritage.
