She is a former World No 1 tennis champ who boasts a muscular athletic physique. And it seems that Venus Williams has met her match, if her boyfriend is anything to go by.
The 32-year-old sportswoman's rumoured squeeze Elio Pis, 24, was spotted on the beach in Miami on Monday showing off his buff body in a pair of tiny Speedos. According to People magazine, Venus has been dating the Cuban model for several months. The tall dark and handsome hunk accompanied Venus when she made her return to tennis last year at the New York Grand Slam tournament. Venus was previously out of the circuit after battling Sjögren's Syndrome, a s ystemic autoimmune disease in which immune cells attack and destroy the exocrine glands that produce tears and saliva. At the tournament, People reported at the time that the pair were seen kissing and cuddling up to one another at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. Elio was also pictured watching his girlfriend from the grandstands as she played in her matches. According to his Facebook page, Elio is a huge fan of tennis, but this isn't the only thing the couple have in common. Being a model, he also shares a passion for fashion and has even modelled some of Venus's designs from her sportswear line EleVen, appearing on her website alongside her.

Has Tiger Woods snared Lindsey Vonn?
Three years ago he hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons as a string of affairs were revealed, but it appears that disgraced golf star Tiger Woods may have been tamed by new love, champion skier Lindsey Vonn. The pair apparently began seeing each other in November last year, and the shamed golfer is pulling out all the stops to ensure this relationship goes the distance, unlike his marriage. Shockwaves were sent through the sporting world in December 2009 when it was revealed that Tiger had cheated on his wife Elin Nordegren with a string of women. Elin and Tiger were married for five years, and they have two young children, Samantha, five, and Charlie, three. Once golf's greatest superstar, Tiger's career and marriage fell apart after he was revealed as a serial cheater. Elin, 32, won a $110-million divorce settlement from Tiger after he admitted his affairs.
Tiger, 38, appears to have learnt from his mistakes and is making every effort to go the distance with his new love: "He wants to marry again and thinks Lindsey could be the woman, a source close to the golfer revealed to Star magazine.
The blonde beauty was reportedly wary of getting involved with the golfing star because of his past, but it appears that Tiger has pulled out all the stops to prove he has learnt from his mistakes.
The golfing star recently whisked 28-year-old Lindsey away to Antigua for a romantic break, and earlier this month he stopped off on his way to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship to visit her in Austria, where she was competing in a World Cup Ski event.
