Two nights after a number of politicians, A-list actors and professional athletes came to see Serena Williams play in the first round of the U.S. Open, the stars aligned again.
Like Monday night, the guests in Williams’s player’s box included Alexis Ohanian, her husband; Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., her daughter, who turns 5 on Thursday; Oracene Price, her mother; and Anna Wintour. Tiger Woods was also joined, and he was eventually greeted by Venus Williams during the first set.
After coming to Monday night’s match, Spike Lee returned for the second round match, sitting courtside. Tennis star Billie Jean King also came back.
Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York joined the list of politicians to come watch Williams, after former President Bill Clinton and Mayor Eric Adams of New York were in attendance on Monday.
Others in attendance or expected to attend include: Dionne Warwick, Jason Collins, Amy Schneider, Zendaya, Anthony Anderson, Bella and Gigi Hadid, La La Anthony, Chelsea Handler, and Steve Nash.
