serena williams joins Delta Open Mic to warm up for the US Open

Last night, Wednesday, August 20th at Arena in New York City, No. 1 tennis player Serena Williams joined Delta Air Lines for the first ever Delta OPEN Mic to warm up before she steps onto the court for New York’s most celebrated tennis tournament. Serena, along with celebrity friends, Orange Is The New Black’s Uzo Aduba and Laverne Cox, comedian Kathy Griffin, 30 Rock’s Katrina Bowden, Glee’s Darren Criss, celebrity fitness trainer Shaun T and tennis star Jack Sock, sang their favorite tunes to gear up for the tennis tournament kicking off on Monday.

Williams, a karaoke enthusiast, kicked off the night by channeling her inner Marilyn with “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” followed by Laverne Cox’s memorable rendition of “One Moment in Time.” The two were met with a resounding round of applause by fellow karaoke buffs and Delta guests.

And this post really is useless without the photos!

John McEnroe, The Rocker Boy of Bald: For more than three decades, John McEnroe has managed to stay relevant and his hairline is no exception. The curly, clown-esque locks of his early career seemed to complement his outlandish on-court antics. But even this seasoned tennis vet isn’t recession-proof. Perhaps his thinner hair is the reason behind his (somewhat) more subdued public persona. Nice try, Johnny Mac.

A few months ago, Andy Roddick hit what he called one of the best shots of his career. It was a diving save, one in which Roddick smacked a forehand down the line on match point to win a third set tie-breaker against up-and-comer Milos Raonic and capture the Memphis title. And while the web went abuzz with the video of the shot, many viewers weren’t actually watching Roddick’s shot. Instead, they were paying attention to a cap-less Andy, his hat having fallen off in his exertion of effort. And what was there to see? Not much, actually. An almost-bald Andy.Hair loss and tennis go hand and hand. Male pros often play into their mid or late 30s, meaning as they start to lose their hair, it’s left for all the public to see. Andre Agassi freaked out about it so much that he donned a fake hairpiece that had the world fooled. Pete Sampras has been so nonchalant about his after-career hair thinning that he doesn’t even seem to notice.

But we notice — we always notice. TSF has collected the hairdos (and don’ts) from around the tour in what we’re calling “The All-England Club for Men’s Hair Loss,” where styles differ from member to member, but everyone has one thing in common: they’re going — or already are — bald.
