Drake Supports Serena Williams in the Stands at the U.S. Open – And They Leave Together
The rapper cheered on Williams at her semifinals match, where Italian player Roberta Vinci won in an upset
At least Serena Williams had the support of the crowd – and close companions like Drake – cheering her on.
After a nerve racking faceoff between Roberta Vinci of Italy – a 300-1 underdog – on Friday, Williams ultimately lost the U.S. Open semifinals match, ending her bid for a historic Grand Slam.
Drake – who was pictured leaving the game with Williams – was at the edge of his seat throughout the game, cheering on his rumored girlfriend.
The pair have been spending quality time together, including, most recently, a cozy August dinner date at an upscale restaurant in Cincinnati. Williams was in town to compete at the Western & Southern Open (and Drake was cheering her on in the stands.)
When Williams was asked if Drake was her “lucky charm” at a July 9 press conference (attended by the rapper), she called him her friend.
