US OPEN IMAGES: Taraji P Henson, Sara Sampaio, Kelly Oubre Jr, Betty Gilpin & Camille Kostek cheer on Serena Williams from the Grey Goose Suite

During the intense Women’s Finals match at the 2019 US Open between Serena Williams and Bianca Andreescu, Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson, Victoria Secret Angel Sara Sampaio, GLOW-star Betty Gilpin, Phoenix Suns basketball player Kelly Oubre Jr., and Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek were spotted cheering on Serena from the Grey Goose Suite.

Taraji P. Henson, a dear friend of Serena Williams, first met the former world No. 1 tennis player on the set of ER when she made a guest appearance on the show. The Empire actress was so stressed to watch Serena play that, by the 2nd set, she needed to escape the presence of the court, and watched the rest of the match on the TV inside the Grey Goose suite. Every time Serena scored a point, the actress and her team ordered a cocktail to celebrate the wins. Taraji, notoriously single for quite some time, brought her fiancé, former NFL-player Kelvin Hayden, with her to the match. With wedding prep in full swing, Taraji passed on sipping the official cocktail of the US Open, the Grey Goose Honey Deuce, and opted for the low-calorie Grey Goose vodka soda instead. The bride-to-be attended the match in a Philip Lim romper and accessorized with a Chanel bag and cuffs, and embraced her natural hair texture.

Model Sara Sampaio attended the match in a printed maxi dress from Mango and white heels. Sitting just next to Sara in the neighboring Suite were Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne. Sara shared a sweet moment with the lovebirds during the match, congratulating them on their new relationship and toasting with Grey Goose cocktails.

Taraji talked shop with NBA-player Kelly Oubre Jr., who signed a $30m two-year contract with the Suns earlier this summer, inside the Grey Goose Suite before the match. Kelly was turning heads in a pair of neon orange Chrome Hearts jeans and Alexander McQueen boots all night. Between the cheering and applauding for Serena, the notoriously suave athlete was spotted sipping on several Grey Goose cocktails.

Two-time Emmy nominee and die-hard Serena fan Betty Gilpin brought her husband Cosmo Pfiel to the Grey Goose Suite. The actress dressed down for the match, wearing no makeup, glasses, and a baseball cap, to keep all eyes on the game.

Rob Gronkowski’s girlfriend, swimwear model Camille Kostek, cheered on Serena from the Grey Goose Suite as well. The American beauty kept it casual in denim-on-denim, and left Gronk at home to bring her sister with her to the match. The former NFL-WAG chatted with NBA-player Kelly Oubre Jr. about the upcoming NFL season in the Grey Goose Suite between sets.
