American tennis veteran Venus Williams has parted ways with her boyfriend Nicky Hammond after two years of dating, Page Six has reported.

While Venus wanted to take the next step in their relationship by getting married and have a family of her own, Hammond wasn’t on the same page, the report said.

“They dated for two years and have broken up. It’s not because they don’t love each other, they do. They are still friends,” a source was quoted as saying.

“Venus is looking for marriage, but Hammond wasn’t in same stage.”

Hammond, who is 12 years younger to Venus, 39, was often spotted accompanying her to tournaments. He was also present at Serena Williams’ wedding with Alexis Ohanian back in November 2017.

On the court, Venus is yet to win a title in a long time. After crashing out as early as the first round of the French Open (to Elina Svitolina), she was knocked out by the in-form Ashleigh Barty in the quarter-finals of this week’s Nature’s Valley Classic in Birmingham.
