Ohanian’s romantic gesture took the couple back to Italy, where it all began for them in 2015. They first met in Rome after they caught each other’s eyes completely by chance. Williams and her friends were sat by the pool at the Hotel Cavalieri when Ohanian sat beside them. The group tried to convince the businessman to leave by pretending there was a rat under his chair. But he insisted he wasn’t put off by rodents and ended up joining the table, where he and Williams hit it off. “It was love at first sight,” a source later told E! News.
Williams, 36, and Ohanian, 35, kept quiet as their love started to blossom. But the rumor mill began buzzing when Ohanian shared a snap of the tennis ace at the U.S. Open. “Come at the queen, you best not miss,” he captioned the image on Instagram.
