Washington, July 8 : Former World No.1 tennis player Serena Williams is reportedly romancing American hip hop artist Common.
The reports of a possible romance between the two had first come out late last year, but the pair has not confirmed the news.
Common was in London in the days leading up to the match against her sister, Venus, a source revealed.
"Common flew over to London to hang with Serena," E!online quoted the source as saying.
"He was running around with the Williams entourage," the source said.
During the match at Wimbledon, Serena rented a house in the London-area, while the Wanted star had a room at a hotel.
The only time the two were spotted together, was when they left a group dinner on July 3 together, with Common leaving the next morning for a concert gig in Germany.
"I know he's over there for some tour dates, so he could have gone to Wimbledon," Common's rep said.
From Williams' side, there were no comments from her representative.
"I think he's a great guy," Serena had told Ebony magazine earlier this summer.
"He's obviously a great artist who is timeless and classic. You can't beat that. But I have to focus on tennis, because that's my goal in life," she had added.
