Serena Williams Quits Dating: Plus Five Other Tennis Stars to Date Celebrities

Yahoo Contributor Network

Tennis star Serena Williams announced via Twitter that she will "never date again." In the past, she has been linked with several celebrities, including rappers Common and Drake. Williams may have taken herself off of the market for future celebrity romances, but there are other tennis stars that can fill the void. Here is a look at five other tennis greats who have dated celebrities.

Andre Agassi

Andre Agassi may be married to fellow tennis legend Steffi Graf, but he was once married to another famous face. Brooke Shields and Agassi were something of a power couple until their divorce in 1999, just two years after their wedding . Agassi suffered a career slump during the marriage, which seemed to fade away after the divorce.

Maria Sharapova

Sharapova once dated Maroon 5 front-man Adam Levine, but he wasn't much of a gentleman after the break-up. He reportedly called her a "dead frog" in the sack. It definitely wasn't the classiest of moves. She is now engaged to Sasha Vujacic, and Levine is single once again.

Andy Roddick

Andy Roddick has been linked to Mandy Moore and Maria Sharapova in the past. He is now married to model and actress Brooklyn Decker. Decker has modeled for Victoria's Secret, and can currently be seen in "Battleship" with Liam Neeson.

Mark Philippoussis

Philippoussis made headlines in 2004 when he was dating celebutante Paris Hilton. Their relationship was made public before he had officially split with ex-girlfriend Delta Goodrem. Goodrem was once a soap opera star in Australia. Paris Hilton told reporters that she was "head over heels" in love with Philippoussis. The two were not together for long, and Hilton moved on to the next man on her list.

Anna Kournikova

Anna Kournikova's relationship with Enrique Iglesias is probably the most well-known romance in the tennis world. The two have been dating for over ten years, but have announced that they don't plan on getting married. Iglesias commented on their lack of wedding plans, saying, "I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. And nowadays, it's not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you're a good parent, period."
