Many will be watching intently as Serena Williams battles it out on the tennis court at the U.S. Open on Aug. 31. However, a few others will be looking in her reserve box to see if they can spot a familiar face. Will Drake make an appearance at Serena’s match to cheer her on?
Drake, 28, has been very supportive of Serena Williams, 33, at her past matches. But, will the rapper show up to cheer his lady on at her match on Aug. 31 at the U.S. Open? Well, Robin Roberts, 54, made an attempt to subtly ask the tennis player who will be showing up to support her and this was Serena’s response.
You tried, Robin! The Good Morning America reporter sat down with Serena to chat with her about her latest accomplishments when the subject of her match at the U.S. Open came up. When Robin asked Serena who will all be there to support her, this is what the tennis star said. “Venus (Williams) will definitely be there. You know, Patrick. My coach has been great,” Serena said, listing off people in her life. “Yeah, we’ll see, Robin.” The 33-year-old totally avoided naming off the one person we were all waiting for — Drake’s! Take a look at her evading his name below.
The duo were on and off for a while, but according to an insider, Serena and Drake are totally on! “Serena and Drake have been on a slow burn for a few months now,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They have known each other for years and there has always been a spark but the timing was off. Drake was always saying to her, ‘When are we going out?’ Serena never seriously thought Drake was interested in her like that though.” While the two are enjoying their time together, it seems as if Serena’s family and friends aren’t too sure about this romance.
Serena’s Friends & Family Are Afraid Drake Will Break Her Heart
Drake and Serena make a very cute couple, but her friends and family are a bit reluctant to accept Serena’s relationship with Drake. “Her friends and family, unfortunately, aren’t as trusting of Drake and worry he will just break her heart,” an insider spilled EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “She’s on the cusp of becoming the undisputed best female tennis player in the history of the game and they don’t want a broken heart at the hands of Drake derailing her.” Serena has avoided Drake for a while now and she’s certainly being careful now that she’s with him.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Drake show up to support Serena at her match?
