Serena Williams, depending on who you are, can be the most desirable tennis player on tour, or the most repulsive. If you like her, the good news is she’s still available. The bad news is she seems like a difficult catch.
“I haven’t been on a date in forever,” Williams told reporters Thursday in Australia.
“I can be super picky, never satisfied. It’s a little crazy right now because there’s so much going on that when I’m not playing tennis I don’t sleep because I’m always doing something.”
I don’t know what she counts as “forever,” but we had told you about her dinner date with country singer Jake Owen in October. Maybe it was just a dinner between friends. All I know is if Serena is looking for a date, there are plenty of guys who are interested. Too bad she’s so picky.
