The Williams sisters are arguably one of the greatest female tennis doubles pairs of all time, and they were happy to play to a sellout crowd to support those affected by the quakes.
She took part in a charity doubles event on Sunday to raise money for victims of the recent Kaikoura natural disaster, playing with her sister Venus, New Zealanders Marina Erakovic and Jade Lewis, All Blacks Julian and Ardie Savea and Caroline Wozniacki.
Williams announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the social media company Reddit, on the platform on Thursday.
"The same should be happening in New Zealand and New Zealand First wants changes to the Broadcasting Act to make this happen".
"I've no explanation of what's going to happen to me in the future, but I'm still pretty good at tennis", she said.
Venus admitted she didn't know much about rugby- but Julian and Ardie said they've always admired the Williams sisters. And a carriage waited.
"Destination: Rome", Williams, 35, composed on her checked Reddit account.
"To escort me to my very own 'charming.' Back to where our stars first collided". And now it was full circle. "At the same table, we first met by chance". Down on knee. He said 4 words.
Ohanian also shared the Reddit post on Facebook, simply writing, "She said yes".
His personal motto is "making the world suck less" and he's invested in more than 200 small businesses, each of which he vets personally to ensure they chime with his credo. "And Waiheke Island - this is wonderful".
As indicated by the Celebrity Net Worth site, Ohanian, a New Yorker, has the total assets of US$6 million, despite the fact that that is little contrasted and his life partner's evaluated US$150m fortune.
