In April, Williams joked about falling for a nerd at her TED talk with Gayle King. 

“He’s very loving and he’s very kind,” she said. “My mom says he’s very considerate and when she said that to me, I was like you know he really is. It’s the little things that really make a huge difference in life.”

She has repeatedly said she'll return to tennis. It remains to be seen whether it's at the Australian Open, which begins Jan. 15.
