It looks like Serena Williams is taking part in a new type of tennis match.
The 30-year-old sports star, who recently bagged the U.S. Open and Olympics titles, appears to have also won the heart of her tennis coach, Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou.
The pair were spotted getting very cosy on the streets of the French town of Valbonne this week, as they dined out and stood cheek-to-cheek while peering at listings in the window of a realtors.
Great match: Mouratoglou, who laughed as he chatted with Serena, began coaching the star after her exit from the French Open. She has since won the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and Olympics
Not-so professional relationship: The couple were seen enjoying lunch - and a clinch - at a nearby restaurant
Serena has since won Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and gold at the Olympics, proving they are a good match. Mouratouglou has also sat in player's box during matches.
And now these pictures fuel rumours that they are also a good love match, with French tennis site PKTennis reporting: 'Mouratoglou and Williams are seeing each other.'
And the pictures of them gazing into the window of Bruce International Properties, which sells property on the French Riviera, could suggest just how well their relationship is going.
Affectionate: They appeared deep in conversation as he placed his arm on her back and she touched his leg
Lunch date: They were unaware of the activity swarming around them as they dined out
The look of love: Serena gazes at Mouratouglou, who runs a tennis academy near Paris
Fond: There have previously been rumours they are dating, and these pictures show just how close they are
The breakup came less than two weeks after Common, who is ten years her senior, told chat show host Ellen DeGeneres he was planning to marry the tennis champion.
Prior to her relationship with the entertainer, Serena dated actor Jackie Long and was also linked to film maker Brett Ratner.
Hopefully she has more success with Mouratoglou, who has proven a good match for a fair few tennis players, garnering grand slam finals and more than a dozen junior titles.
