Venus Williams has been dating 24-year-old Cuban model Elio Alberto Pis for several months now and the two seem to be incredibly happy together.
The 32-year-old tennis champ made quite a comeback at the New York Grand Slam tournament last week after suffering from Sjogren’s Syndrome, and her new Cuban model boyfriend was her number one fan in the stands.
In a display of public affection, the couple was caught holding hands and kissing each other as they walked through the corridors of Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Pis was seen in the stands, along side the tennis star’s friends and family cheering her on throughout every match.
Unfortunately, the two-time U.S. Open winner was defeated by Germany’s Angelique Kerber in the second round on August 30 and just last week on September 3 she was eliminated from the doubles competition along with her younger sister Serena Williams.
As much as the tennis champ would have loved to add another trophy to her collection, she still has other exciting ventures to look forward to.
According to People, Williams will be presenting her clothing line, EleVen, during New York Fashion Week and plans to have her new boo right there by her side once again.
As it turns out, Pis is actually a model himself and has worked with Williams in the past on her ready to wear athletic line.
The Cuban model’s good looks have also booked him gigs for Russell Simmon’s clothing line as well a feature in French Vogue with the American actress and model Brooke Shields.
While Venus is adding a new romance to her plate, sister Serena is adding yet another victory under her belt.
After taking the title for this year’s U.S Open, the younger Williams sister has become only the third woman to win Wimbledon, the Olympics, and the U.S Open all in the same year. Her older sister Venus and Steffi Graf are the only other women to have achieved this goal.
This victory marks 30-year-old Williams’ 45th career title, and makes her the first woman older than 30 to win the U.S Open in over 20 years.
