Serena Williams’ husband recently announced his intention to grow a mullet for the year 2024. The tech entrepreneur and investor revealed that he was inspired by the American tennis player JJ Wolf, who is known for his distinctive hairstyle.
Wolf, who played college tennis at Ohio State University, has won five Challenger titles. He reached the third round of the US Open in 2020 and 2022, and the Round of 16 at the 2023 Australian Open, where he lost to Ben Shelton in a thrilling five-setter.
The 24-year-old American is currently ranked No. 53 in the world and finished 2023 with a win-loss record of 26-25. Along with his exploits on the court, he has also gained attention for his hairstyle.
Announcing his decision to emulate Wolf’s mullet hairstyle, Ohanian tweeted on Saturday, December 9:
“I’m growing a mullet for 2024. JJ Wolf inspired me,” Ohanian wrote.
Ohanian has been married to Serena Williams since 2017 and they have two daughters, Alexis Olympia and Adira River. He is seemingly a supportive husband and father, often cheering for Williams at her matches and taking care of their children.
Ohanian is also a successful businessman, having co-founded Reddit, Initialized Capital, and Seven Seven Six, among other ventures.
