Meghan once wrote about being close friends with Serena in her now-deleted blog, The Tig. "She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was traveling," she wrote, "the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down to earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto."
