What tournament? Serena Williams may be in the thick of the US Open, but on Sept. 7 she took time out of her hectic schedule to grab a spot of tea with Kim Kardashian in New York City. Tres chic!
Hot off her fourth-round win against Madison Keys, 20, on Sept. 6, Serena Williams, 33, made the most of her day off from the US Open by enjoying a night out with her close friend Kim Kardashian, 34. The two beauties took to New York’s famed Carbone restaurant, where they couldn’t help but show off their stylish tea date to the masses!
Serena and Kim made quite the stylish pair when they joined forces to celebrate Labor Day at the elegant Italian restaurant on Sept. 7. Serena, who was enjoying a day off from the tennis courts, looked happy and relaxed as she sipped on hot tea with the pregnant reality star at their own private table. Naturally, the two besties couldn’t resist sharing a snap from their sophisticated girls’ night out. Taking to her favorite social media app, Kim posted the above pic to Instagram along with the caption: “Sipping & spilling the tea tonight with Serena.” How chic!
Having spent the last couple of days conquering the tennis courts, Serena took full advantage of her time off, ditching her Nike gear for a sleek, sexy look. Taking a page out of Kim’s book perhaps, Serena showed off her shape in a tight white pencil skirt, a blue cutout crop top and a cropped bomber jacket. Ever the athlete though, Serena opted out of wearing Kim’s favorite footwear, sky-high heels, slipping into a pair of comfy black trainers instead. Kim meanwhile, kept things relaxed in a pair of tight black denim jeans, a vintage Ramones tee and her favorite ankle-length Balmain coat. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star topped the look off with a fresh, dewy complexion, a glossy nude lip, and a sophisticated topknot — a far cry from her more revealing maternity looks.

The girls’ night out was likely a welcomed respite for Serena, who will go up against her sister Venus Williams, 35, in the US Open quarterfinals at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York on Sept. 8.“She’s playing great,” Serena said about Venus after her win. “I barely had time to get ready for my match because she won so fast. I have to be ready for that.”
No matter the outcome of the match between the sisters, it will be a good day for the Williams family. “At least a Williams will be in the semis, so that’s good,” Serena said.
In last year’s US Open Serena was victorious, storming her way to the final, where she eventually destroyed Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-3. Whoever the eventual victor is, they will walk away $3.3 million richer because of prize money. That’s a huge incentive for anybody!
