With seven Grand Slam titles and four Olympic gold medals under her belt, we have no doubt that Venus Williams will go down in history as one of the greatest athletes of all time. But as much as we love to watch the 42-year-old dominate on the tennis court, we especially enjoy seeing glimpses of her personal life, from bonding moments with her niece to candid pics with her sister, Serena. Still, we’re itching to know: Who is Venus Williams dating? And who has she dated in the past? Keep reading for everything we know about the tennis star’s relationship history.
The tennis champion is single—and for now, she prefers it that way. While recording an Instagram Live in 2021, she candidly responded to a fan question about her love life. She said, “Lots of people asking me to go on a date. I’m just not. I would say, ‘I’m undateable.’ That’s OK, I’m happy.”
The news might surprise some fans, since Williams was in a relationship with Nicholas Hammond as recently as 2019. Speaking of…Nicholas (or Nicky) Hammond is a successful financier and an heir to the Annenberg family fortune. The millionaire, who was born into an affluent family, studied at Trinity School before going to New York University. Then, he went on to work as a private financier for high-profile clients.
Hammond’s upbringing was mostly private, so it wasn’t until he met Williams that he started drawing media attention.
