Serena Williams put a stop to the romance rumors that she's with Drake.
The 28-year-old rapper has been sitting in Williams' box at Wimbledon in England and has attended almost all her matches. While some speculated the two were an item, she says he's just a friend.
When Williams, 33, beat Maria Sharapova in the semifinals on Thursday, Drake was center court to support his pal. He also showed up to her press conference.

When a reporter (via The Associated Press) questioned Williams as to whether Drake was her "lucky mascot," the "Know Yourself" rapper awkwardly laughed and put his hands in his face. The tennis pro rolled her eyes. 

"We've been friends for, like, so many years," Williams responded. "Just like family."
Looks like Drake just got put in the friend zone!
Do you think these two would make a good match?

One icon that was ready and willing to make out with Drake on stage was Madonna. See her response to their awkward smooch session
