Serena Williams Father Opted Out From Walking Her Down The Aisle Just One Hour To Her Wedding.

According to the Daily Mail, “Serena Williams has earned her spot as one of the greatest athlete’s of all time thanks in large part to her adaptability on the court, where she managed to overcome unforeseen obstacles match after match.

That ability also serves her off the court as well it seems, and came in handy on her wedding day when she got what many brides would consider the worst possible news.

On the third episode of the HBO docuseries Being Serena, which airs on Wednesday night, viewers will get to see the moment that Serena received a text from her father Richard saying that he could not attend the wedding while in the midst of doing a photo shoot for Vogue.

She received that text just one hour before Richard was set to walk her down the aisle, and the image of her in wearing her stunning Alexander McQueen wedding dress was published by the magazine.

This of course is coming just as Serena heads to London where she will watch her friend Meghan Markle walk down the aisle, possibly going it alone as well just like the tennis great.

Alexandra Macon, who covered the wedding for Vogue, said on Wednesday that Serena never said anything about that text or her father’s absence – until now.

‘I can only imagine how all over the place her emotions must have been, but she radiated a sense of calm, even when things went wrong,’ Macon wrote in a post on Vogue.com ahead of the episode.

‘Unbeknownst to me at the time, her father and longtime coach, Richard, texted her an hour before the wedding was supposed to start, saying that he didn’t feel comfortable walking her down the aisle.’
