Washington, Oct.27 (ANI): American tennis great Serena Williams has revealed that her love life is currently her racquet, as does not have much time for anything else.

"I am a psycho when it comes to dating. Like if a guy doesn't call me when he says he is going to call me, I get all emotional. I guess that is because of what happened with So and So."

So and So? That's Williams's name for her first boyfriend - she refuses to say his real name because a friend told her that it is easier to get through a bad break-up if you don't speak your ex's name.

An American footballer, So and So finished their budding relationship in 2001 when he simply stopped taking her calls.

They had just spent two weeks in each other's company after 9/11 and Williams had fallen deeply in love, but he pulled the plug without even bothering to explain why.

"I suffered a lot when that happened," she says. "I just couldn't understand why he was so cruel. I think my run of grand-slam titles [she won four in a row between 2002 and 2003] was partly about showing him that I didn't need him to get on with my life."

Are you over him now? "Oh, God yeah. But I think it is because of what happened with him that I still have trust issues with guys." (ANI)
