Is it just us or…is this friendship TOTALLY random?! Colton Haynes and Serena Williams are spending time together while vacationing in Australia, and it’s not even the first time they’ve hung out. Where did this pairing even come from!?
#FriendshipGoals! Serena Williams, 34, and Colton Haynes, 27, flaunted their friendship on Instagram Oct. 5 while on a trip to Australia with their mutual pal, Val Vogt. The whole thing seems completely random, but the two are actually good friends! See the pics from their fun trip here.
It’s definitely a time for rest and relaxation for Serena, who pulled out of the China Open in order to recover from some injuries. There was no better place to celebrate, then, than sunny Australia, where she was joined by some fun-loving pals for a great adventure. The tennis pro shared a photo of herself, in which she rocks a hot red bathing suit, Colton and Val while getting ready to go tubing with the caption, “Core memories with @valgabond @coltonlhaynes love you guys.”
The Teen Wolf star shared the same photo on his social media page with a similar description. “Cheers to more core memories wit these 2 @serenawilliams @valgabond : ) What an epic adventure.” Okay, so yes — this does seem like such a random match up. How did they meet? What do they have in common?!
But, don’t forget, Colton was also at the U.S. Open to watch Serena play in the semifinals last month, so the friendship definitely isn’t brand new. He was even sitting with the 34-year-old’s rumored boyfriend, Drake, so if you were thinking this is anything other than strictly platonic, guess again!
Just last week, Serena announced her decision to take a little break from her sport while in recovery. “It’s no secret I’ve played injured most of the year,” she said. “Whether it was my elbow, my knee, or, in the final moments after a certain match in Flushing, my heart. I am taking a proactive step and withdrawing from tournaments in Beijing and Singapore to properly address my health and take the time to heal.” This vacay definitely seems like a good first step!
