Tennis star Serena Williams and hip-hop artist Common made no secret of their blossoming relationship this past weekend in Miami, where they went club-hopping hand-in-hand.

The new couple were spotted Saturday night holding hands at a Knight’s Head Microbrew party at the South Beach haunt Mokai. Later in the evening, Williams, 26, and Common, 36, were once again spotted holding hands, trying to get into Prive nightclub – but failed since Common (wearing shorts) violated the hot spot’s dress policy.

Williams appears to fit the description of Common’s ideal woman. “I’m attracted to women that are strong in the sense of who they are,” he recently told PEOPLE. “I like women who have power to them, but can still be ladylike and that have their own dreams.”

The couple’s Miami weekend follows an affectionate Easter-weekend outing in Hollywood, where where they were spotted kissing and getting cozy at Villa lounge.
