PARIS -- It was the opening Sunday of the 2013 French Open, and as the light was fading on Court Suzanne Lenglen, the crowd was transfixed as a match between Urszula Radwanska and Venus Williams hit the three-hour mark.
The two players continued to trade blows for 19 more minutes, until, mercifully, Poland's Radwanska earned the best win of her career.
Sources close to TMZ said that Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., was "chatting" with Serena in the back of the center.
"Yeah, yeah it was kind of eventually a mutual breakup but she initiated it.
The post may have also been a thinly-veiled attempt to distract attention from her budding romance with Drake.
Just days earlier the pair was caught on camera kissing in public after what appeared to be another date night.
I let the past be the past, grow from the past and stay in the present." Reps for Serena and Common did not respond to the News request for comment.
When you're one of the most successful female tennis players in sporting history, and comfortably the richest, there's never a shortage of eligible men ready to accompany you to dinner aboard a super yacht en route to an Oscars party on the shores of a private island.
A lifetime with @venuswilliams will not be enough." It is not surprising that Williams and her 35-year-old sister share a close bond having been raised on tennis as siblings growing up in Compton, California.
And over the past 17 years they have battled it out on the court, as both rivals and partners.
Back then, it had already been five years since Williams had won a major title and four since she had been diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome.
At the time, doctors said she would struggle to play again professionally, but the former world No.
Serena Williams and Common are rumored to be dating again, TMZ said.
