When it comes to pretty much everything, Beyonce is one step ahead of the game.
Except for tennis, that is.
The hitmaker and husband Jay Z were notable attendees in Serena Williams’ private box at yesterday’s Wimbledon final. But when it came to cheering their long-term friend’s 22nd grand slam tournament victory, Bey was a little… err… delayed.
While family and friends leapt to their feet in excitement after Serena sealed the match against Germany’s Angelique Kerber at 7-5 6-3, the 34-year-old looked slightly befuddled at what was happening.
Given she’s one of the most successful musicians on the planet, a lack of tennis knowledge is more than acceptable.
It turns out Serena and Bey have been firm friends for a while now – the tennis pro even starred in the music video for “Sorry”, one of the hits from the controversial Lemonade album.
“I’ve known Bey for a long time,” Serena told WSJ Magazine of the experience last month. “I got really sore from dancing!”
Beyonce was one of many celebs in a star-studded crowd yesterday, with actresses Ellen Degeneres, Portia de Rossi, Natalie Portman, Rashida Jones and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams also delighting in Serena’s victory.
