Reilly Opelka is a figure in Tennis that no one can miss. Standing in at 6 feet 11 inches, he is one of the tied tallest persons to be active in the ATP circuit. Hailing from the US, the sub 140mph ace machine made his ATP debut in 2016 and since then has gone from strength to strength. But beyond his career and current US Open form, we wanted to take a look at his girlfriend/personal life, similar to thousands of other fans scouring the net right now.
Born on 28 August 1997, to his parents in St. Joseph, Michigan, Reilly was only four years old when the family moved to Palm Coast, Florida. While a dominant right handed thrasher on court now, Reilly only picked up the racquet at the age of 12 and one of his father's friend was a inspiration and constant pusher during his earlier career.
But coming late into tennis did not hamper the American as much. Soon, he was using his ever growing frame and dominating in the younger arena. In 2015, at the age of 17 Reilly won at Wimbledon juniors and a year later he went pro. Since then he has been changing norms, paying $10,000 fines for a pink bag, and occasionally winning ATP tournaments. But since you are here to learn more about his girlfriend, here is what we know till now.

Reilly Opelka's girlfriend is said to be Venus Williams, fellow tennis star and multiple time Grand Slam winner. This is a rumor that started floating around in April and May of 2021 after footage of the two training together in Florida came out. Venus' coach posted the video and Reilly said he had fun training with the tennis legend, but soon fans started to go through the comment sections and rumors started flying around.
The trio of Reilly, Venus, and her coach Hechtman were also in Italy together in May 2021. Eric shared pictures form the day and said Reilly was their tour guide. But the rumor mill went into overdrive on 7 May 2021 when Reilly shared a picture of himself on court and in comment section Venus dropped three red hearts. The screenshot of the comment soon started making rounds of the internet.
Venus Williams was called Reilly Opelka's girlfriend but no one confirmed if the two were dating. Neither Venus nor Reilly's Instagram feature pictures of the two together. There is no way to confirm if they are still dating or ever were a thing. It all leads us to believe that Reilly Opelka does not have a girlfriend in 2021, the rumors will always be there but nothing substantial backs the rumors.
Reilly Opelka Does Not Have A Girlfriend in 2021 - He is Currently Single!
Reilly Opelka is a character on and off court. He has a relatively big following but there are also a lot of detractors. Every post on his Instagram page has a few mean to outright disrespectful comments. But most of the times he manages to shut down the haters with some noteworthy performance. Still, imagine what it would be like if the tennis star introduced a girl to all his fans and haters.
When it comes to relationships, people tend to be mean, now consider the jokes if Reilly stood next to his girlfriend who is not as tall as him. He probably does not care about most of those things, Reilly appears to be as someone who can take and dole out jokes. But the other person in the relationship may not have a thick skin as the US star.
All that aside, Reilly Opelka is currently single and he does not have a girlfriend in 2021. Even if he did, the athlete does not appear like someone who would willingly give away that type of informations. We looked through his social media presence and beyond advertisements and his own pictures, there is very little to see there.
Reilly Opelka was Fined $10,000 for a Pink Bag at US Open - He is Through to The Third Round
Reilly Opelka got over a hump at the US Open this year. After three attempts, the 2nd highest ranked American made it through to the third round at the final Grand Slam. With unseeded Nikoloz Basilashvili standing in his way, a career best performance at a Grand Slam is probably the case for the American. But yesterday things got a little hairy for Reilly with the officials of US Open.
Recently Reilly Opelka has been seen carrying a pink tote-bag with the name of a art gallery on its side. After his dominant win against Lorenzo Musetti the officials fined the American $10,000 for having the logo on the side of the bag, slightly over the regulation. It is the largest fine handed out to a player at this year's event and the cash will be taken away from the final winning amount of Reilly, and the US star found a little humor in the whole thing.
