London: Tennis ace Serena Williams has blamed rapper Common for their break-up.

Williams, who dated the singer for two years, insists their busy careers often got in the way of spending time together. But she claims it was Common who refused to put in the extra effort to make their relationship work, reports a news website.

"His schedule is worse than mine. He didn`t want the responsibility. It`s really tough," she said.
