Does Serena Williams Have Any Pets?

Christopher Chip Rafael Nadal (Dog)

Breed: Yorkshire Terrier

Serena Williams has a dog named Chip. When this Yorkshire terrier isn’t wrapped in hotel towers or sampling personally prepared gourmet dog food, he’s flying around the world attending Wimbledon, or another tennis tournament. The life of a companion to a world champion tennis player requires travelling around the globe and Chip just happens to be the perfect size. He’s able to fit under the seat, and effectively fly to any country. And if you noticed this pup’s full name, it’s also a dedication to Serena’s friend and tennis legend Rafael Nadal.
