Ranking The Many Celebrities At The Serena vs. Venus US Open Match
Tennis royalty Venus and Serena Williams met on Tuesday night in the quarterfinals of the US Open, adding another chapter to the book of their truly special rise to greatness as both sisters and rivals. Serena won the match 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 to move one step closer to a calendar Grand Slam and is now 79-1 at the US Open in matches when she wins the first set.
It's been obvious for a while now that Serena is one of the greatest American female athletes of all time, so it's no surprise that local New York celebs showed up to make it a star-studded crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium. They were a motley crew to say the least, and just like us regular folk, all celebrities are not created equal.
So here are the celebrity attendees of the US Open on Tuesday night, ranked from worst to best.
12. EMILY RATAJKOWSKI
She's the girl from the 'Blurred Lines' video who hates to be called the girl from the 'Blurred Lines' video because apparently she's trying to be an actress now. Oh well. The best acknowledgement she gets beyond her stint getting humped by Robin Thicke on video is being on this list.
11. ANNA WINTOUR
She looks like a Disney movie villainess that came to life and most people my age that aren't obsessed with Vogue and red carpet fashion only know her as someone that Lauren Conrad wanted to impress on 'The Hills.' But she gets a little extra credit for being somewhat of a die hard US Open attendee.
10. DR. OZ
Garcinia Cambogia will never leave the ad space on my social media and it's all his fault, so screw him and his creepy smile and his largely irresponsible television health advice.
9. COREY HAWKINS AKA "MOVIE DR. DRE"
I have no idea if Hawkins has any relationship to Compton outside the NWA film but I still like the tie in to the Williams' sisters hometown. Plus 'Straight Outta Compton' was the best movie of the summer.
There was a time very recently when I legitimately couldn't remember if Nas was dead or not. I'm glad he's alive, although he seems to be either super high or unable to work the camera. Actually, it's probably both.
7. LAILA ALI
I like when American sports royalty can all get together and celebrate their collective greatness. She also is the only celeb to figure out how to use the mirror cam to take a flattering selfie.
6. JOE JONAS AND GIGI HADID
They're this high on the list purely because it never stops blowing my mind how money and a way hotter/more successful little brother can get a dude who looks like Joe Jonas a girlfriend that looks like Gigi Hadid. Plus every great sporting event needs a classic C-list celeb couple.
5. DONALD TRUMP
He's topical. He's ridiculous. Everyone around him looks like they wish that they were anywhere else on the earth's crust than sitting next to him. Even his wife looks like she's thinking about how much she hates his face. It's glorious.
4. OPRAH WINFREY
Mostly just because it's good to be reminded that Oprah is still around, keeping an eye on us while Trump is seemingly taking over America one racist at a time. She makes me feel just a little more safe.
3. AZIZ ANSARI
There hasn't been enough Aziz in the world since 'Parks and Rec' came to an end. MORE AZIZ PLEASE.
2. KENDRICK LAMAR
Great rappers from Compton are HAWT right now for sure. But what really tops off his US Open appearance is that adorable smile for the mirror cam. He's having all the fun that Nas isn't having.
1. KIM KARDASHIAN WEST AND KENDALL JENNER
There is almost nothing more entertaining to a millennial girl in her 20's than tracking the Kardashian/Jenner ladies on social media. You never know what combo you will get at a specific event at any time on any spot on the earth. This time it was Kim and Kyle in NY. Next time it could be Kendall and Khloe in London. You could even get the rare Kris/Kourtney pairing in a Range Rover in Calabasas. YOU NEVER KNOW.
