Tennis may not have been the only thing on Serena Williams’ mind at Wimbledon.
Her maybe-boyfriend Common was in London in the days leading up to the match against her sister, Venus, according to a source.
“Common flew over to London to hang with Serena,” the source reports. “He was running around with the Williams entourage.”
I’m told Serena rented a house in the London-area, while the Wanted star had a room at a hotel.
The two were spotted leaving a group dinner together on Thursday night. Common apparently left the next morning for a concert gig in Germany.
Common’s rep said, “I know he’s over there for some tour dates, so he could have gone to Wimbledon.” Williams’ rep did not comment.
Reports of a possible romance first surfaced late last year, but the two have never confirmed anything. “I think he’s a great guy,” Serena 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.”
