Venus Williams is scoring off the court.
The 40-year-old tennis star is rumored to be dating fellow tennis player Reilly Opelka, who stands at 6-foot-11. The 23-year-old ATP player is a junior Wimbledon champion and Red Bull ambassador.
Neither Williams nor Opelka has confirmed they’re an item, but fans have noticed they’ve been spending time together through various social media posts. Additionally, Williams has been dropping flirty comments under some of Opelka’s Instagram photos, including a few red heart emojis under a post he shared on May 7.
First, the two practiced together in April at Ibis Golf and Country Club in Palm Springs. Williams’ tennis coach, Eric Hechtman, shared a video of the pair hitting balls at the club.

At the time, Opelka said his session with Williams “was a lot of fun!”
On May 6, Hechtman shared a collage of Instagram photos indicating that he traveled to Rome with Williams and Opelka, who he credited for being the group’s tour guide.
The last photo in his post featured Williams and Opelka sporting matching plaid outfits while exploring what appeared to be an Italian museum.
