Looking for proof that exes can still be friendly? Just take a look at Drake and Serena Williams!
Drake and Serena were romantically linked back in 2012. And, according to E! News, the pair were confirmed to be dating in 2015. They’ve since gone their separate ways – Serena is now happily married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and Drake has been linked with a number of other celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Bella Hadid.
But even though they’re not together anymore, that hasn’t stopped the “God’s Plan” rapper from cheering for Serena on the court. He was definitely into the game, applauding, smiling, and sometimes looking pensive, as the tennis champ faced her opponent, Italy’s Camila Giorgi, at the women’s quarterfinals. (Sidenote: she won the match!)
The excitement of the Wimbledon Championships is definitely a draw for tennis enthusiasts – and celebrities aren’t immune! Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were also in the stands on to watch the same match. Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, Anya Taylor Joy, Stella McCartney and Olivia Munn have also been spotted in the audience throughout Wimbledon.
Last week, Serena’s hubby, Alexis, was front and center, proudly cheering on his wife at the semifinals.
“Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise,” Serena told ESPN after winning the semi-finals. “To be here. To be in the semifinals. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals. But when it actually happens, it still is, like, ‘Wow, this is really happening.’”
Serena gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, last year, and had to take some time off from tennis. This is her first bid for the Wimbledon Championship since becoming a mom.
“This is only my fourth tournament back, so I don’t feel pressure,” she also told the sports news outlet. “I don’t feel I have to win this; I don’t feel I have to lose this. I’m just here just to be here and to prove that I’m back. And I feel like I’m back. I still have a long way to go to be where I was.”
Her next match will be against Julia Goerges of Germany.
