Beyonc and Jay Z Lead the Star-Studded Pack to Watch Serena Williams Reach a Major Wimbledon Win

Posted on

Beyoncé and Jay Z are outshining the coveted Wimbledon trophy.

The couple was spotted smiling and chatting while cheering on their friend and tennis superstar Serena Williams during the Wimbledon women’s singles championship match on Saturday in London. Williams defeated Angelique Kerber (7-5, 6-3) and is now the second woman in history to have won 22 grand slams. (This also marks Williams’ seventh Wimbeldon singles win.)

Queen Bey and her husband, both dressed in white, showed their support in the player’s box on Centre Court. For Williams and Beyoncé, surprise appearances are kind of their “thing.”

A few months ago, Williams had a cameo (where she twerked!) for Beyoncé’s much-talked-about Lemonade film.

“I’ve known Bey for a long time,” Williams, 34, told WSJ Magazine last month.

But Beyoncé and Jay Z weren’t the only stars who attended Williams’ match. Actresses (and Harvard grads!) Rashida Jones and Natalie Portman were spotted sitting and laughing together at the final.

Even Maisie Williams and her new blue ‘do made an appearance!


Orange is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba showed her support on Twitter, posting a photo of Centre Court with the caption “Today, is for Serena.”
