Although spring sprung rumors that Serena Williams and the rapper Common were an item, the tennis champ plays it coy when pressed for comment on the relationship.
"I think he's a great guy," Williams, 26, tells Ebony for its July issue.
"He's obviously a great artist who is timeless and classic. You can't beat that. But I have to focus on tennis because that's my goal in life."

Tennis star Serena Williams and hip-hop artist Common made no secret of their blossoming relationship this past weekend in Miami, where they went club-hopping hand-in-hand.
The new couple were spotted Saturday night holding hands at a Knight's Head Microbrew party at the South Beach haunt Mokai. Later in the evening, Williams, 26, and Common, 36, were once again spotted holding hands, trying to get into Prive nightclub – but failed since Common (wearing shorts) violated the hot spot's dress policy.
