Serena Williams Boyfriend 2013: Patrick Mouratoglou Too White For Her Taste? Wimbledon Star Says She ‘Prefers Black Guys’

By Staff Writer | July 17, 2013 09:01 PM EDT

Serena Williams and her French coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, are rumored to be dating, but past interviews reveal she might not have always been into dating white men.

'I'm very selfish and set in my ways. There are some great guys out there, wonderful people. I only date black guys. I don't mind white guys, I just prefer black guys," Serena Williams said during an interview with filmmakers Maiken Baird and Michelle Major in 2011.

The two filmmakers were making a documentary about Serena and Venus Williams that released last month.

But to the surprise of many tennis fans around the world, Serena Williams began dating her white boyfriend Patrick Mouratoglou a year after the interview.

And Serena Williams' favorite movie is "Mama, There's a Man in Your Bed" a French film about a mixed-race couple living in Paris, leaving fans wondering if her movie preferences are inspired by her romance with her coach.

Patrick Mouratoglou and Serena Williams have made headlines for their relationship off of the court and the amount of time they spend together.

Serena Williams and Patrick Mouratoglou are currently in Bastad where she will compete in the Collector Swedish Open.

She defeated Sesil Karatancheva of Kazakhstan 6-1, 6-2 in the first round on Tuesday.
