Newly Engaged Serena Williams Touches Down New Zealand

Serena Williams touched down in New Zealand and hit the tennis court after announcing that she is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a sweet poem.

The tennis star revealed on Thursday that her boyfriend of almost two years Ohanian had popped the question after whisking her away on a surprise trip to Rome.

Williams, 35, shared the news on Reddit by posting a poem, writing: 'At the same table we first met by chance / This time he made it not by chance / But by choice / Down on one knee / He said 4 words /And I said yes.'

Ohanian, 33, later posted Williams' poem to his Facebook account, writing: 'She said yes.'

He also commented on her poem on Reddit, writing: 'And you made me the happiest man on the planet.'

Williams was seen Friday arriving at Auckland Airport followed by the media and then hitting the tennis court for a practice session ahead of the ASB Classic tennis tournament next week.
