Serena Williams Enjoys Dinner and Tea with Kim Kardashian During U.S. Open Break

Killin’ the tennis and the friend game, Serena Williams dined out with Kim Kardashian last night in New York during off-time from her day job: competing in the U.S. Open.

Williams, who faces her older sister and greatest rival Venus Williams in the quarterfinals today (Sept. 8), also enjoyed some teatime during her girl time with Kim and baby bump, perhaps in an effort to channel some mindfulness and peace.

Serena and Venus’ match today (7 p.m. EST) is sure to be yet another competitive and exciting one between the two sisters. Serena and Venus have met 26 times, but Serena has edged out her sis 15-11, so the rivalry is all too real. Both sisters have been ranked No. 1 in their lifetime; while Serena is currently ranked No. 1 (with a record of 22-0 in Grand Slam matches in 2015), Venus is ranked No. 23.

Arguably the greatest female tennis player and some would rightfully say also the greatest athlete of her time, should Williams win the U.S. Open this year, she’ll have swept up all four Grand Slams in a calendar year (the French Open, Wimbledon, the Australian Open, and the U.S. Open). Plus, it will also be her fifth consecutive Gland Slam win.

Also not of any crucial importance, but she’s rumored to be dating Drake (again). He cheered from the sidelines as she played (and became victorious) at Wimbledon back in July.

Given the fact that the stakes are high, it’s nice to see Williams casually spending time with a friend in between matches.

Next week, Williams will be having her second NYFW show for her Serena Williams Signature Statement Fall Collection for the HSN on Sept. 15. On her line and upcoming show, she commented:

Throughout my life, I’ve always believed in pushing boundaries…whether it’s in tennis, business or fashion! By offering my Signature Statement collection exclusively through an innovative retailer like HSN, I’m able to communicate directly with my fans. This year my runway show will be broadcast live, and you can shop the collection immediately afterwards. That is exciting to me and not common in fashion today.

Good luck to both Williams’ sisters.
