The American tennis star is in Melbourne for next week’s Australian Open and answered questions about her relationship status at a Thursday press conference.
“I haven’t been on a date in forever,” Williams she said.
“I can be super picky, never satisfied. It’s a little crazy right now because there’s so much going on that when I’m not playing tennis I don’t sleep because I’m always doing something.”
Serena dated the rapper Common on and off for three years. The two broke up sometime last year, reportedly leaving the Chicago-born artist “heartsick.” Since then, Serena has beenhanging around with the Canadian TV star-turned-rapper Drake. The two were photographed playing tennis together while Serena was out with an injury last year, though both insist the relationship is platonic.
Common and Drake have thrown barbs each others way in recent rap lyrics and it’s believed that Serena is the reason for the beef. If there’s anyone who should have a problem with this, it’s Serena. She has two guys interested in her and neither have taken her out on a date in “forever?” Step up your game, gentlemen.
Serena begins her quest for a fifth Australian Open title on Tuesday.
