PALM BEACH, Florida– One of the best female tennis players made an announcement today that many people did not see coming.
“I love Elio as a friend, but nothing more after that” said Williams “I wasn’t ready for my fans to find out about this, and to be honest I haven’t always felt this way.

Only time will tell how this will effect Williams career, either in a positive or negative way.
Some of her sponsors are old school, and even Venus admitted to us, she fears that they will cut ties with her after this hits the mainstream.
“I love to play tennis but some endorsements do pay my bills, and I’m afraid that I’ll be losing a lot of my sponsors.

In January 2008, the word was out that the couple got engaged. What do you think is the deal with WTA players and golfers?
However, the two split in 2010 and in May 2011 Hank married his current wife Andy. Ana Ivanovic and Adam Scott (ok, now they're over), Caroline Wozniacki and Rory Mc Ilory…
