Productivity apps or tools she uses: #1: “Toggl, an app that tracks time and breaks down the percentage spent on family, business and tennis: “It’s really good for me, because at the end of the day I can say how much time I spent and how it adds up. I want my percentage with my daughter to be a lot.”

On when tennis takes precedence over investing: “The only time I don’t focus on [investing] is about eight weeks of the year, when I’m in a Grand Slam.”

On balancing time while training for tournaments: “Morning time is tennis time. Afternoon time is business time. I’m really, really organized with my time.”

On finding inspiration from her three-year-old daughter: “Life moves. If you’re not moving, Olympia’s making you move.”

On husband Alexis Ohanian stepping down from the board of Reddit, urging the company to replace him with a Black member: “I wasn’t sure, because I didn’t know where he was going with it. I’m like, ‘Wait, what are you doing? Why would you do that?’ That was my initial reaction. But once he explained himself, I was like, ‘Okay, well come off, now!”

First thing she does in the morning: “I check my phone.”

Last thing she does at night: “I watch TV. [So] the last thing I do is press play on my computer. Yes, I watch TV on my computer now.”
