He also opened up to DeGeneres about how emotionally involved he becomes whenever Williams is playing tennis in tournaments.
“I sit there, and I’m just tense. People try to talk to me, and I tell them to be quiet. I was sitting next to Richard Branson and I didn’t pay attention. I don’t care who is there. I’m focused on this tennis match.”
Serena has been linked in the past to actor Jackie Long and film director Brett Ratner.
