Text size Aa Aa

There’s been no let-up in Serena Williams’ schedule since the tennis star announced that she was getting married.

The news broke on Thursday that the world number two had got engaged to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.

“He said four words”, and I said yes – she wrote in a poem published on the social media company’s website.

Her fiance popped the question during a surprise trip to Rome. The couple have reportedly been dating for over a year.

Serena Williams is now in New Zealand where she’s due to play a tournament in Auckland next week. The 35-year-old is competing in the country for the first time.

With 22 grand slam singles titles, she’s seen as the best player of her generation and perhaps of all time.
