The social season to end the Summer is being held in Flushing NY as fans try to catch Serena's return to the US Open. For those lucky to have close view they may be able to check out the different suites around the match and those who attend. Check out below who was spotted at The Grey Goose suite.
Last night, as the US Open quarterfinals kicked off with Serena Williams beating out Karolina Plišková and Rafael Nadal narrowly advancing against Dominic Thiem. The only thing rivaling the heat of the matches was the heat of Victoria's Secret Angels Sara Sampaio and sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, who were in the audience to cheer on their favorite players.

Over in the Grey Goose Suite, Sara was seen living it up as the matches got more and more intense. The Portuguese beauty adhered to the theme of the night, sporting a playful baby-blue tennis-inspired dress, with tie-up shoulder straps and a ruffled top half. She sipped on the Grey Goose Honey Deuce—the official cocktail of the US Open—while flirting with her longtime entrepreneur beau Oliver Ripley.
The two were practically inseparable, with Sara letting her dress straps fall to her side as Oliver shielded himself with his baseball cap so the two could share a private moment. Says a source.
Elsewhere in the stadium, fellow VS angels and superstar sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid enjoyed giggle-filled girl time together while the matches ensued. In between enthusiastic cheers for her friend Serena Williams, Gigi sipped on some Honey Deuce cocktails herself. The eldest Hadid enjoyed the drink so much, that she even posed with it in her sister's Instagram story. She later paired her beverage with a hot dog, making her supermodel figure even more envious.
This past week other celebs have been spotted like Olivia Palermo, Paul Welseley, and Margarita Levieva.
If you haven't gone to the U.S. Open, then there is a lot you're missing out on. From spending the last Summer Days outside, as athletes and celebrities like Andy Cohen, Kevin Spacey, and Anna Wintour take part in this 2-week sporting event, it's always an elegant event.
Crafted to pay homage to the world’s most exciting Grand Slam, the Grey Goose Honey Deuce is comprised of Grey Goose Vodka, freshly squeezed lemonade and raspberry liqueur, topped with tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls.
Designed to transport tennis fans near and far to the non-stop courtside action, the cocktail is named after the most exciting moment of a tennis match when the score is tied at 40-40 - coined by tennis nerds as “deuce.” The refreshing sip is ideal for cooling off during the sultry summer days or powering through the wee hours of the morning to see if Roger Federer can keep up the momentum stateside following his record-breaking Wimbledon triumph.
Not able to attend this year's event? You can still try the Honey Deuce for yourself as it will be served at several New York hot spots, around the city. Bars include the Dream Downtown, PHD Terrace at Dream Midtown, 48 Lounge, Ascent Lounge, The Pierre, and Four Seasons Hotel.
Don't feel like going out, or want to host a viewing party yourself, make your guests feel like they're at the event by making the cocktail yourself.

On Monday, August 20, in advance of the 2018 U.S. Open, Novak Djokovic hosted a fundraiser for his Novak Djokovic Foundation to help raise funds to provide early childhood education programs in disadvantaged Serbian communities.
The charity event was held at the sales gallery for 565 Broome SoHo, the first residential building in New York City designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano which Djokovic recently purchased a residence within the building.
At the event, Djokovic personally signed the tennis racquet that he used to win the final in Cincinnati on Sunday, a victory that made him the first man to claim all nine Masters events on the ATP Tour. The racquet will be auctioned off alongside his personal, limited edition Seiko watch next month as part of Christie’s “Falling for Time” online watch sale from Sept. 6 – 20. All proceeds from Djokovic’s contribution will benefit the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which provides early childhood education programs in disadvantaged Serbian communities.
"I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to make a difference in my country, and the support of organizations like Bizzi & Partners Development and Christie’s helps make that possible.” said Novak Djokovic
The August 20 fundraiser was hosted by global real estate firm Bizzi & Partners Development, which is developing 565 Broome SoHo along with Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures.
