Hammond — who’s 12 years younger than Williams — isn’t in it for the money, according to our spy.

“He’s definitely not a fortune hunter,” we’re told. “She’s head over heels for him.”

The “very handsome” 25-year old is an heir to Walter Annenberg’s TV Guide fortune. His parents are socialite Dana Hammond and her ex-husband James.

Williams, the number two rated womens tennis player in the world, needed a shoulder to cry on Tuesday. That’s when she was upset by German racket-swinger Angelique Kerber at the Sydney International tournament. It was revealed on Thursday that she’ll be back in action Sunday when she takes on Swiss challenger Belinda Bencic in the first round of the Australia Open. All eyes will be on the VIP seats.

According to our source, Venus has expressed an interest in having kids, despite Vogue magazine’s report on Wednesday that her 36-year-old sister Serena, overcame life-threatening complications in September when she gave birth to her first baby.
