Serena’s set to love


She has been a perennial winner on the tennis circuit, but Serena Williams still longs to win ‘the’ love game.

Serena Williams “desperately” wants a family

In a Twitter Q&A which she dubbed #SerenaFriday, Serena confessed to “desperately” wanting a family of her own some day. When an excited fan asked whether she’s single, she simply said, “Not by choice.”

Back in August, the 33-year-old and her rumoured boyfriend and coach Patrick Mouratoglou were spotted on a date at New York’s Bagatelle. An insider said they “seemed very intimate and they didn’t stop chatting all night.” Her dating history also includes a rumoured romance with director Bruce Ratner and another relationship with rapper Common.

In June, she complained about the lack of romance in her private life. “I haven’t been on a date in forever,” she told reporters in Australia, adding: “I can be super picky, never satisfied.”

When quizzed on what type of guy she’d go for, Williams quipped, “Anywhere between 18 and 80, blonde, purple or green.”
