Tennis ace Serena Williams has spoken out about her alleged romance with rapper Drake. After a couple of weeks of stories and pictures circulating around the net, Williams has denied that they are anything more than friends.

“Oh, man. Really? We’re really close friends. Can’t be too close to a friend nowadays, I guess” she told the Toronto Star recently when asked if she and Drake were dating.

Earlier this month, her “close friend” Drake didn’t help the situation by tweeting:

@serenawilliams I cannot wait to put it on you and make you sweat……….during our match this weekend

So is this some kind of cat & mouse game or are the pair actually dating? One thing’s for sure … we will be watching!!
