Opelka who himself is a fashion guru, commented “Rock n roll star,” under Venus’ Instagram post. He has previously shown his love for the brand Prada and has also been in attendance at several Fashion Weeks across Europe.
Both stars have often exchanged compliments and pleasantries on their fashion choices previously as well. Opelika, who lives next door to Venus, received praise from both Venus and Serena in June for the outfit he wore to a Prada event in Milan. Serena remarked, “Nice,” under Opelka’s photo dump on Instagram from the Prada event. Venus commented as well saying, “Dead.”
Despite Reilly Opelka and Venus Williams dating rumors, the two haven’t made their relationship public. Venus, though, acknowledged that she had approached Opelka. Williams, however, admitted that Opelka had “shot her down“. Yet she revealed he is one of the only few people she shares an amazing bond with on the tour.
Who is Venus Williams’ alleged boyfriend Reilly Opelka?
He is a retired professional tennis player from the United States. He is tied for the tallest ATP-ranked player ever at 6 feet 11 inches, and he has a serve speed of above 140 mph. He has won one ATP doubles championship and four singles titles. He also won the junior Wimbledon tournament.
In 2022, the ATP placed him as high as World No. 17 in singles, while in 2021, he was ranked as high as World No. 89 in doubles. The American, 25, last appeared in Washington last year. After losing 150 points in the Delray Beach final of the previous year, Reilly dropped out of the top 100 this week for the first time since 2019. Opelka is still not ready to compete again and has been on a hiatus since then.
Opelka has developed into an elite tennis player and a consistent tournament threat. However, he has recently been spotted sitting front row at fashion events rather than clashing at the tennis court.
Due to his delayed recovery from hip surgery. Opelka has always been a fashion enthusiast which confirms he is living his life and having fun at fashion weeks instead of missing the court.
