The Williams sisters are having a winning year all the way around; Serena won the US Open on Sunday, after having already won Wimbledon and an Olympic Gold Medal in 2012. Now it seems the elder sister Venus is experiencing some good fortune outside the court in the romance department.
The 32 year old, Williams, is dating 24-year-old 6’1 Cuban model Elio Alberto Pis (does she qualify for cougar status yet?) Pis has modeled for Russell Simmons’ clothing line, and is also working with Venus’ own athletic clothing line EleVen (check the photo below for a shoot the two did together for the brand). He’s not all beauty with no brains either; Pis paid his own way through school, graduating with a degree in Psychology from Florida International University. He seems like quite a catch, and Venus is certainly a deserving woman.
After her scary Sjogren’s Syndrome diagnosis in 2011, we are happy that Williams is back on the court again and enjoying her new boo.
