Patrick Mouratoglou would know that there's a lot that comes with being the boyfriend and dating the almost-known greatest female athlete of all time.
According to New Pittsburgh Courier, the 31-year-old No. 1 women's tennis player is "bidding to become the greatest female athlete in history," especially after her U.S. Open 2013 win against Victoria Azarenka, giving her 17 Grand Slam titles.
Writer Kenneth Miller summed up all Williams' credentials:
She has a combined 31 career major championships including doubles competition with sister Venus and four Olympic gold medals, including two singles.
Her lofty credentials include winning 80 percent of her career tournaments, 79 of 99 and on every surface; 34 on hard court; 10 on clay; 6 on grass and 5 on carpet.
Moreover, she has captured the most prestigious Wimbledon and U.S. Open championships five times each.
Oh, by the way she owns a career .500 record against arguably the greatest women's player of all time Steffi Graf.
She has earned close to $60 million in prize money plus another $30 million endorsements for a cool $90 million.
The only argument that anyone can have against Serena as the best female athlete of all time, is that she's feisty, confident, soulful and sexy -all the more reason for me to love her.
Williams recently announced that she is not playing in next week's Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo because she is still recovering from the summer.
"I'm disappointed to have to withdraw from the Pan Pacific Open, which I was very much looking forward to playing this year," Williams said. "Unfortunately, with the number of matches I have played throughout the summer, I need more time to properly recover."
Rumors also swirled that Mouratoglou, 43, and Williams broke up recently because in a recent interview, the fan-favorite tennis player said that she doesn't mix business with pleasure.
Williams told USA Today in June following her latest French Open win: "We have this great communication. It's definitely a two-way street. I think coaches sometimes think it's always their way. And it's like, 'You do this because I say it.' Our dynamic is not like that at all. I think that's what makes him so good. He's open to me, and I'm open to him. It creates something special."
