It was only a little while ago when they were seen making out and now things are getting steamingly hotter!!

Following Serena Williams’ big win at Wimbledon in July, the tennis pro was reportedly caught locking lips with Drake, 28. The rapper has been unattached for a while, but those romance rumors are on again.Although the two have yet to say anything about their speculated relationship, we just got word from a close friend of Serena that she is in fact 12 weeks pregnant with Drakes Child.

The popular theory blaming the rapper for her loss circulated on social media with several users taking hits at him. 

'Drake is the Jessica Simpson to Serena's Tony Romo' one user wrote on Twitter followed with the hashtag 'BlameDrake'.

'Drake jinxed Serena man,' another user posted on the social media site. 

The hip-hop mogul, who stood in the stands rooting Williams on, had even before Friday developed a reputation as bad luck for teams and athletes. 

For example, Drake watched on as his favorite college team the Kentucky Wildcats, whose undefeated season ended in the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament against Wisconsin Badgers.

He has also been blamed for Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel's 'lackluster' career, the Seattle Hawk's most recent Super Bowl loss and for LeBron James’s cramps during his last year playing with the Heat, according to the Washington Post.

This is not his first time he has attended one her matches as he has been pictured previously during the Rogers Cup in 2011, but Williams won 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 against Zheng Jie.

Williams had won her previous four Grand Slam tournaments, including all three this year - the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.

After the match a heartbroken Serena was spotted leaving the stadium with her rumored boyfriend Drake, with the two getting into the same car and driven away from the facility. 

Serena did not even change before leaving, seeming to want to get out as quickly as possible following her loss.

Vinci, who is unseeded, will now take on countrywoman Flavia Pennetta in the final on Saturday.

Pennetta upset Simona Halep - the number two seed - earlier in the day.

Serena seemed to be well on her way to the final after blasting past Vinci in the first set, but the Italian began rallying better in the second set, and by the final games of the third Serena appeared exhausted on the court. 

By the time Vinci hit her final winner - a volley at the net - Serena appeared ready to leave.

She graciously shook her opponent's hand before immediately leaving the stadium, waving to the fans as she made her exit. 

Serena appeared to be having problems with her ankle during the match and had the trainer tend to her at one point. 

This is not his first time he has attended one of her matches as he his pictured above during the Rogers Cup in 2011 in Toronto, Canada where she played against Jie Zheng of China. Williams won 4-6, 6-3, 6-3

Serena, 33, had not lost in a major since Wimbledon in 2014 prior to her defeat on Friday, and had only lost two matches this season. 

Serena kept things brief during her press conference following the match, saying; 'I don’t want to talk about how disappointing this is for me. If you have any other questions I’m open to that.'

She did compliment Vinci's performance during the match.

Serena 'It's going against your best friend and best competitor'
'I thought she played the best tennis in her career,' Williams said. 

'You know, she's 33, and you know, she's going for it at a late age. So that's good for her to keep going for it and playing so well.

'Actually, I guess it's inspiring. But, yeah, I think she played literally out of her mind.' 

When asked about the pressure put on her by those hoping to see her win the Grand Slam, Serena said; 'I told you guys I don't feel pressure. I never felt pressure. I don't know. I never felt that pressure to win here. I said that from the beginning.'

The entire press conference lasted exactly three minutes. 

Serena waved to her fans as she exited the court following her defeat

Rumored boyfriend Drake cheered Serena on during the match from a private suite, and some are now jokingly blaming her loss on him.

Serena was aiming to become the first woman since Steffi Graff in 1988 to win all four majors in the same calendar year.

She was also aiming to match Graff's record of 22 Grand Slam singles titles, the most of any player in the Open Era. 

Prior to Friday, she had never lost to Vinci, who at 32-years-old is just a year younger than Serena.

What's more, she had never even lost a set to Vinci, and defeated her in Toronto last month.

Vinci apologized to the crowd after her victory.,

'For the American people, for Serena, for the Grand Slam and everything,' she said. 

'But today is my day. Sorry, guys.' 

She then added; 'It's an incredible moment for me. It's amazing. It's like a dream, you know? I'm in the final. I beat Serena. I think [it's] the best moment of my life.'

When asked later about how she managed to play so well, Vinci told reporters; 'In my mind, I say put the ball on the court. Don't think.

'Try to put all the ball on the court. Don't think about that Serena is in the other court. And run, you know, when you put the ball, run. Don't think and run. And then I won.'

Vinci used her trademark slice expertly in the final two sets, making it near impossible for Serena to generate any pace on the ball and forcing her to play Vinci's game. 

She grew increasingly frustrated during the contest, receiving a code violation at one point for smashing her racket. 

Vinci now becomes the lowest ranked played to reach the finals of the US Open since 1997 - when Serena's sister Venus took on Martina Hingis.

Serena played her sister in the quarterfinals here in another three set match, pulling out that victory 6 - 3 in the third. 

Vinci and Pennetta - who used to be roommates - played each other in the quarterfinals of the 2013 US Open, with Pennetta winning in two sets.

She did suffer four breaks of serve, but also managed to break Vinci four times as well.

Serena also had four double faults, which were balanced out by her 16 aces.

After wins at the Australian, French and Wimbledon, Serena is now just two victories from joining the exclusive club whose short membership list includes Maureen Connolly, Margaret Court and Steffi Graf.

2013 Charleston - Serena won 6-1 6-2 

2014 Montreal - Venus won 6-7(2) 6-2 6-3 

2015 Wimbledon - Serena won 6-4 6-3

The last player to accomplish a calendar-year Grand Slam was Graf in 1988. 

Nabbing the title would cement Serena's place as the greatest women's tennis player of all time. 

'I think people love to see history being made,' said Venus following her fourth-round win over Estonian Anett Kontaveit on Sunday. 

Certainly there are no secrets between the sisters who will have been playing each other since they were first handed rackets growing up in the hard-scrabble Los Angeles Compton neighborhood and began an unlikely and inspiring journey to the top of their sport.

As professionals they had - before Tuesday - clashed 26 times with Serena holding the advantage 15-11.

Serena won their last meeting in July at Wimbledon while Venus came out on top when they last met on a hardcourt last August in Montreal.

In grand slams Serena also holds the advantage 8-5 and 6-2 when they have met in the final.

Serena maintains Venus has always been her toughest opponent and with 11 losses to older sister, nobody has beaten the 21-times grand slam winner more.

Retired Jennifer Captriati comes the next closet with a 10-7 record while Justine Henin (8-6) and Martina Hingis (7-6) each had six wins.

Only a handful of players can claim more than one career win over the muscular American and only two, Belinda Bencic and Petra Kvitova, have beaten her this season.

'I mean, I'm playing, for me, the best player (Venus) in the tournament and that's never easy,' said Serena, 33, who is two years younger than Venus.

'She's beaten me so many times. I've taken a lot of losses off of her -- more than anybody.

'She's a player that knows how to win, knows how to beat me, and knows my weaknesses better than anyone ... the only player in the draw I don't want to play, not only because she's my sister, but for me she's the best player.'

It was 18 years ago that Venus reached the U.S. Open final for the first time but Serena lifted the family's first grand slam trophy when she won two years later at Flushing Meadows.

While Serena has long looked up to big sister and credits her with much of her own success she long ago stepped out from Venus's shadow to become one of the sport's all-time greats.

Whenever the Williams sisters clash on court it is a major tennis event and Tuesday's meeting is ripe with drama and suspense.

Two of the sport's dominant figures, the sisters long ago accepted the inevitable that they would stand across the net blocking each other's path to a title.

The matches have not always produced riveting tennis but over the years the angst has eased, at least making the contests more enjoyable for the sisters if not the fans.

'Nowadays, I would agree, I think it's more fun than it used to be,' said Serena following her fourth-round win over Madison Keys. 'We really relish the opportunity. We're both happy to still be involved in getting so far.

'And it's still super intense. She's doing well and she wants to win this. So do I. It's not easy.

'I think it's been an amazing rivalry. I think it's meant a lot. We've done a lot for the sport. I think, you know, hopefully it can continue as long as we play.'

Venus and Serena remain best of friends off the court, sharing a love for fashion and other interests while building separate lives.

'I feel like Venus and I have definitely proven that you can be friends and you can be sisters, you can be enemies on the court, and you can be friends and sisters off the court,' summed up Serena.

Serena first emerged unexpectedly, winning the U.S. Open singles title in 1999 at the age of 17, launching a magnificent career that has added 20 more slam singles crowns.

Featuring the biggest serve in women's tennis, Serena vaulted to dominance.

In 2003 she completed her first 'Serena Slam' by winning the grand slam season-opening Australian Open after she swept the last three titles of 2002 -- all against Venus in the finals -- to hold all four singles crowns at the same time.

There were lows as well in her majestic career, brought on by her temper and health issues.

In 2009 Serena lost a U.S. Open semi-final to Kim Clijsters after screaming a profanity-laced tirade at a female line judge who called a foot fault on her.

* Won U.S. Open in 2008 to break the grand slam drought, having not won a major title since the 2007 Australian open.

* At the 2009 U.S. Open, Williams was fined $175,000 and placed on a two-year probation for unsportsmanlike behaviour in her semi-final loss to Kim Clijsters.

* Joined Billie-Jean King on all-time grand slam list in sixth with 12th grand slam title at 2010 Australian Open.

* She missed the U.S. Open in 2010 because of medical complications after cutting her foot on glass while celebrating her win at Wimbledon.

* In 2011, she underwent surgery after a life-threatening blood clot was detected on her lung. She made the U.S. Open final but lost to Australia's Sam Stosur.

Serena then threatened to shove a tennis ball down the official's throat.

Docked a point on match point, she handed victory to the Belgian and was fined $175,000.

Health issues also held her back.

Serena missed nearly a year due to a severe cut to her foot following her 2010 Wimbledon victory and a subsequent clot in her lung.

But Serena worked her way back, rededicating herself to the game.

After taking on Patrick Mouratoglou as her coach just before Wimbledon in 2012, she has gone on an extraordinary tear, dominating the game at the advanced tennis age of 33.

In the past three-plus years, Serena has won eight grand slams and is riding a magical 2015 season in which she has registered a 52-2 record, three wins away from a career-crowing calendar-year Grand Slam.

Serena Williams does a split after hitting a winner. (USATSI)

No. 1 Serena Williams got tested in Round 3 of the US Open Friday by fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, but took control late in the second set and dominated the third on her way to a 3-6, 7-5, 6-0 victory.

In that third set, Williams dominated and had one of the iconic shots of the tournament when she hit a forehand and went straight into a split and celebration.

This was the fourth time in four grand slams that she's dropped the first set in her third round match -- obviously she won the prior three as well.

If Williams goes on to win the US Open this year and complete the calendar grand slam, expect this shot and split celebration to become one of the lasting images of her accomplishment.
