Just call her Miss Independent. Tennis star Venus Williams is Cosmopolitan magazine’s October covergirl — and in an accompanying interview with the magazine, she got real about relationships.

 

 

While reflecting on another year of life — the interview took place a few days shy of her 41st birthday on June 17 — Venus explained her love of freedom, and why she doesn’t feel pressure to settle down with a romantic partner or start a family.

 

 

Venus Williams joked about being stuck indoors

“I have a lot of friends who don’t believe me when I say that I like my life and I don’t want to change it for any reason. I’m not desperate and they don’t believe me,” she said about being single — a status she confirmed in a comical interview at Wimbledon in late June. “They say things like, ‘You’re going to miss your window.’ I’m like, ‘Please, relax. You might feel this way, but I don’t. I don’t want marriage.

 

 

Venus Williams Asks Bachelors to Send Dating Applications, Shows Interests in Dating

Venus shared a post on Instagram and a Tweet talking about her dating life. The 41-year-old has kept her humor up in these times. She talked about how she has the free time to go explore her dating life. The athlete had earlier stated that she was ‘un-dateable’ but she seems to have had a change of heart.

 

 

7 Grand slam title winner jokingly listed the qualities required in the guy who applies to take her for a date. Venus said “now that I have free time, I am accepting applications from all bachelors above 5 feet tall, smart but not smarter than me, has a job and doesn’t talk too much.” She also sarcastically mentioned that her coach Eric Chechtman will be taking the applications for her.

The Former World No. 1 Venus Williams says she is currently single, although that is not by choice, and that she is desperate to settle down and have kids. In a Q&A session with fans on Friday on Twitter, the 41-year-old, said opened up about her personal life and ‘I am single but not by choice; and I’m desperate to settle down and have kids’

 

 

Venus has been single for a while. She separated from her boyfriend Nicholas Hammond after dating him for two years. They were last spotted together in the marriage of Venus’ sister Serena Williams to Alexis Ohanian. Will we soon get to see the results of the online applications?

Venus decided as a child that she would wait until she finds her husband before having sex

Virginity at 41 is rare, out of the ordinary and atypical in the current world where people get into relationships as early as in their teens. However, we do have a few who’ve seemingly broken the norm. So, if you think the 41-year-old virgin is just a movie, think again.

One of these honorable women includes Venus William, a 7-time grand slam winner, who is confirming that it’s indeed possible to be a virgin even at 41. Tennis star Venus Williams is still a virgin according to inside source.

Venus Williams is sticking to her strict Jehovah Witness upbringing. Jehovah Witness practice does not allow sex before marriage. Venus’ sister Serena did not abide by the rule of sex without marriage as she had numerous relationships before getting married and giving birth to a daughter.

“It is funny because Venus decided as a child that she would wait until she finds her husband before having sex, Serena did not go that route. But it turns out that Serena is married while Venus is still looking for a husband,” the source said.

‘I’m single,’ Venus Williams shouts

Venus says it is a cause close to her heart. She has always been very vocal about the fact she doesn’t believe in sex before marriage and I ask her if she is dating at the moment. ‘I’m single,’ she shouts, giving a booming laugh.

Here I am, sitting waiting for Venus Williams in a hotel room: I keep getting texts from her manager/PR/agent giving me updates — Venus is still on the court. Venus is in the shower. Venus is getting in the car, ooh, no she’s not. Venus is definitely on her way.

At long last, she bounds into the room, in head-to-toe white towelling tracksuit and snowy sneakers, waist-length hair in braids whiplashing all and sundry, and she gives me a great big wet kiss.

‘I am so, so sorry,’ she says in her slow, soft drawl, grabbing an armful of grapes (she is always, always hungry). ‘I was working on my shots and I lost all track of time.’

Not many multi-millionaire, spoilt, cosseted superstars apologise for being late, but as it turns out Venus is so controlled, so disciplined, so stifled and imprisoned by her own extraordinary talent that for all her wealth and fame and success (prize money alone won by Venus and her younger sister Serena is £60million and counting), by the time we’ve finished our long chat, I feel desperately sorry for her.

Take this exchange. What did you do for your 41 birthday (a few days ago)? ‘Ummm. I think I was training. I get up real early, I train, I go to the gym, I travel some place, I eat and I sleep. That’s about it.’

But now that you’re at home, will you be able to go out and do some shopping, some sightseeing, have dinner in a fancy restaurant?

‘I definitely won’t have time for shopping, although the dollar is really weak at the moment so maybe that’s just as well.’

I ask if she wears make-up on court and she says no, maybe some eyeliner, but she is often too tired to take it off at the end of the day.

Like most fiercely competitive athletes, she comes across as incredibly meek and mild when off-duty, and is painfully keen to cause no offence to anyone. Yet there is an awful lot bubbling away just below the surface. She is like a coiled spring.

Venus Williams: “I’m Still A Virgin… Never Slept With Any Man Before”

Is it hard for her to meet men? Are they intimidated by her? Venus guffaws. ‘It’s not that hard,’ she says, ‘although I never meet men on the circuit, I tend to meet them back home in Florida. It is hard to find someone who is as tall as me, though (she is 6ft 2in), so I don’t have to wear flat shoes.’

Recently she was seeing an Italian film director, and I ask if she is still a virgin and she almost chokes. ‘Let’s just say I don’t want to go there,’ and I see a twinkle in her eye. Come on, Venus, have you done it yet? She squirms like a teenager and said, “No!, I have never done it before; never slept with any man before.”

She denies being lonely, holed up in her little house in Wimbledon village. I wish her luck as she signs two tennis balls for me in her careful handwriting, and she goes back to her routine of eat, sleep, train, gym, practise. She is a giant, immensely likeable, shy child-woman whose career has been a cocoon as much as a vehicle to untold riches.

I hope she gets a life outside the court. She so deserves it.
