American tennis player Serena Williams is one of the most famous sporting personalities. She has put the sport of tennis on the world map, such is her influence. She has been around for over two decades and the intensity in her games still remains the same.
Since her withdrawal from Wimbledon 2021, Serena is yet to return to the tour. In her absence, she has been extra active on social media, keeping her fans engaged.
Recently, Serena Williams and Common attended Creative Minds Talks at Civic Opera House in Chicago.
The friendly duo spoke on stage in front of fans about philanthropy, activism and entrepreneurship at Lyric Opera of Chicago.
Serena stunned in a pink sweatshirt that read the words, “I am strong’ and ‘I am beautiful.”
She teamed the off-court look with a pair of black tights and lace up boots.
The tennis legend had her brunette locks slicked back naturally into a ponytal and accessorised with a watch and bracelet.
Her makeup was kept minimal with a natural glow, bold brow and nude lip.
Common was dressed in a bright red T-Shirt with a pair of camel coloured trousers.
Serena and the actor/rapper – who’s real name is Lonnie Corant Jaman Shuka Rashid Lynn – dated on-and-off between 2007-2010.
The pair have remained good friends since the split, with Common frequently taking to social media to congratulate the athlete on her wins.
Back in 2015, the Smallfoot star opened up about their breakup on The Meredith Viera Show and confessed they had made a conscious effort to remain friends.
‘I have to say not every one of my ex-girlfriends is still friends with me but with some I am,’ he explained.
“(With Serena), it was kind of a mutual break-up but she initiated it. It’s okay though, we’ve got a great understanding and I care about her as a person … so we can keep that friendship.”
Common added, ‘It’s not like every person you talk to every other day but you still have that respect and you still have that love and you want to see them do well.’
Serena is currently married to Reddit co- founder Alexis Ohanian, and the mum to 4-years-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Meanwhile, Serena is giving her fans a look at what she sees in the mirror.
The superstar athlete posted a sexy selfie to Instagram on Tuesday. In the image, Williams — who is wearing the starlet ruched halter dress in light pink from her clothing line, Serena — struck a sultry pose while staring into an ornate mirror.
Williams didn’t caption the photo but was sure to tag her Audemars Piguet watch.
