Venus Williams on marriage

During the pandemic, as all tennis players sat in their homes, Venus was live on Instagram multiple times to answer questions. And just like the above ‘undateable’ comment, Venus shut down all talks on marriage.

“I get a lot of questions asking if I am married, am I getting married, or if I will marry you. The answer is NO to all of them.”

Regarding who has Venus dated, she broke up with multi-millionaire, Nicholas Hammond in 2019. It was a very public relationship as Hammond was there at Venus’ sister Serena Williams‘ wedding and also cheered for her in tournaments. It is reported that both of them ended the relationship on good terms.

Venus has entered her 40s but she still enjoying her tennis. Despite not playing at her peak, Venus has no plans on retiring. She last played at the Miami Open, losing in the first round. Her 2021 record stands at 2-3.
