Serena’s dad isn’t feeling her new vanilla flavored boo

Serena Williams’ Dad Favors Venus

Via GossipExtra reports:

The British press is going heavy on the absence from the stands of Williams’ 70-year-old dad and ex-coach Richard Williams, who stayed home in Hobe Sound with his much younger wife and their infant son instead of the traveling to London.

Serena Williams 31, bowed out of the fourth round after winning 34 consecutive matches.

NBC tennis commentator Chris Evert, of Boca Raton, said Williams may have been off because she has not played “anyone this tough” in quite a while.

Still, it’s been all about Richard Williams!

The buzz is that Richard, whose most recent cell phone is disconnected and couldn’t be reached for comment, doesn’t approve of Serena’s new coach, Patrick Dempsey lookalike Patrick Mouratoglou. Mouratoglou, btw, is also alleged to be Serena’s lover — despite the fact he’s still married to his wife.

But a close friend of Richard’s tells Gossip Extra that the reason for his absence is closer to home.

“He loves (tennis champ and Serena’s sister) Venus more than Serena,” said the source, who asked not to be named publicly. “Venus can do no wrong in Richard’s eyes. When Venus declared forfeit (because of an injury) for Wimbledon and didn’t go, there was no way Richard would go.”
