Venus accompanied by Hank Kuehne at US Open

I found one really cool set of photos of sisters Venus and Serena Williams practicing before their epic match at the US Open. The photos are chronologically ordered and each one is commented. In this post I’m showing you just some of them.

Serena Williams and Common at US Open

I find it especially nice that the tennis stars were both accompanied by their partners –  Venus by her fiancé, golfer Hank Kuehne, and Serena by her often-denied boyfriend, rapper Common.Fiancé accompanies Venus Williams for US Open practice
