The Australian Open may have only just begun but it seems we already have a clear breakout star.
Nope, it’s Serena Williams’ “granddaughter” Qai Qai.
If you’re a bit confused, you must not be a big Williams fan.
Qai Qai, pronounced ‘kway kway’, is the “daughter and best friend” of Williams’ 16-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia.

The doll, which goes everywhere with the family, even has her own Instagram page showcasing her adventures.
Boasting over 89,000 followers and counting, the doll is often spotted wearing a tutu or even sporting a cast on one of her limbs.
Since arriving in Australia, the cherished doll has made waves at the Australian Open, lounging around on the court, sitting in the umpire’s chair and even taking over the the official Women’s Tennis Association Instagram account.
The doll is so popular, Williams was even questioned about Qai Qai in her post-match interview on Tuesday after beating Germany’s Tatjana Maria.
“Qai Qai is a doll I got her,” Williams said.
