NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/12/2016

Tennis great Serena Williams has landed in Auckland with a successful courting story - announcing her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The 35-year-old winner of 22 grand slam singles titles arrived in New Zealand on Friday morning and appears to have penned a poem while in flight.

The poem was posted to her Reddit account which described the proposal in Rome and ended with: "Down on one knee, he said 4 words, And, r/isaidyes"

Williams, in Auckland for the first time to compete in next week's ASB Classic, has in the past been linked with rapper Drake, F1 driver Lewis Hamilton and actor Colin Farrell.

She started dating 33-year-old Mr Ohanian in September last year, according to gossip websites.
