Tennis champ Serena Williams obviously didn't plan on being caught by the snapper's lens, or she probably wouldn't have chosen to be photographed while wearing a ropey old laddered pair of tights.
Just what misfortune had befallen Serena to cause such a catastrophic effect to her leg garment was unclear.

And as she hurried into her hotel, with her head down, she clearly looked embarassed at being caught in a state of disrepair.

Tights unfit: Tennis champ Serena Williams appears to have had a tights malfunction as she is seen out on in London last night with her new beau, rapper Common,

Holey moley: It's unclear just what mishap befell tennis champ Serena resulting in the holey knees she displayed on a night out

Glam: Serena looks stylish and glamorous at the launch event for sister Venus' clothing line in New York recently
The 26-year-old reigning Australian Open champ was seen returning from a night out with rumoured new beau, rapper Common, to her swanky St. Martin's Lane hotel, in London's West End.
But her normally slick look was ruined by the highly-visible ladders which, unfortunately, started at the knee of her black opaque tights.

It appears that Serena and Grammy award nominee Common, 35, who has duetted with singer Lily Allen, and appears in new Denzel Washington film American Gangster, are an item.

The pair - who appeared together in Common's latest video I Want You - were spotted holding hands recently and getting "very close" at a party hosted for her sister Venus Williams, to celebrate the launch of her clothing line 'Eleven', at popular New York nighclub Tenjune.

A source revealed that the couple were sitting together the whole night and didn't try to conceal their growing closeness.

"They were very friendly, arm-in-arm. All night they were sitting together," a source told the New York Post.

"I asked a friend of his and was told they are dating," the source added.

Serena Williams previously dated director Brett Ratner, but the romance came to an abrupt end after he spent a week partying in New York with Sean 'P Diddy' Combs, Jay-Z And Jermaine Dupri, and she became frustrated with Ratner always being away from her.

Serena and sister Venus will team up to play doubles at the Australian Open in January, organisers said.

The pair have not played doubles at the Australian Open since they won the title for the second time in three years in 2003.

I hope that is her bag he is carrying. I still think he is so unattractive. I want to know how her tights got like that, :tape:. Maybe something sexual going on, lol? And I hope her new man doesn't stop her from practicing and training on a regular basis. She's in London now!

Common has all the traits I try to exemplify for this website...cool, calm, smooth, stylish and bald. So the big news around Hollywood this week is all about the current casting call for the new movie Justice League America. As we reported a couple hours ago, Christina Milian has expressed her desire to be cast as Wonder Woman. Not gonna happen. On the other hand, Warner Brothers has confirmed that Common has read for the role of The Green Lantern. Common's movie career has definitely taken a turn for the better as his role in Smokin' Aces put him on the map and apparently his acting in American Gangster is very strong as well.

It's pretty much common knowledge that The Green Lantern was actually multiple characters all who possessed the power of the Green Lantern ring. The ring of course was made of three elements, Oan, Qwardian and Zamaron. While they sound like the names of Angelina Jolie's kids, the words actually mean willpower, fear, and love. I'm assuming that Common would play the role of Green Lantern John Stewart since the rest of the Green Lanterns were white. Personally I think Common would be perfect for this role but he's up against some tough competition...Tyrese Gibson. They should have a free-style battle to determine who will get the part. Or they should throw an Asian kid up in the air and whoever can grab the kid first wins the part.
Looks like Common got the part of "The Green Latern" in the upcoming Justice League Movie. Didn't Brett direct the X-men, seems like Serena's got a thing for "super-heroes".
