The 2022 U.S. Open—-which runs from Aug. 29 to Sept. 11—-had everyone talking this year as it was Serena Williams’s final tournament before retiring. Not to mention, Frances Tiafoe became the first Black male player to reach the semifinals since Arthur Ashe in 1972. But there have been major fashion moments beyond the history-making sports moments. Celebs from Laverne Cox to Zendaya showed up at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City to cheer on their favorite players donning designer duds. But our SI Swimsuit models' courtside style was aces. Here are a few of our favorite looks.
