At the premiere of the film “Challengers,” the worlds of tennis and Hollywood clashed in a glamorous collision. During the event, various celebrities spilled the beans on who they considered their ideal doubles partner in tennis. They took sides by mentioning tennis legends like Roger Federer, Serena Williams, and Venus Williams. The name Coco Gauff also shone brighter among many others. Here’s what they revealed.

Inspired by a match between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, the movie Challengers has been making headlines lately. Among the various celebrities who attended the event, an interview revealed some of their favorite doubles partners. For example, the main cast member of the movie, Zendaya, said, “Doubles partner? Venus and Serena.”

She quickly added the reason behind the choice and said, “Because I’ll just cheer them on and let them do all the work. I will be like, Whatever you need, girl, I can get you some water. You know what I mean. I just hang back here.” Zendaya’s admiration for the Williams sisters’ contribution has always endeared her fans. She recently paid tribute to them during her Vogue photoshoot.

The Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard also revealed how much she would like to be a doubles partner with the former US Open winner Coco Gauff. “I think me and Coco could kill it out there,” she declared. Bouchard has also previously appreciated the World No. 3 for her remarkable performance in the Miami Open of 2023. And emphasizing it further, she now wants to play with her on-court!

On the other hand, Storm Reid, who is known for her remarkable roles in “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Euphoria,” preferred the Swiss Maestro. “My dream doubles partner has always been Roger Federer. I am a Roger fan since I was young, playing tennis and growing up,” she said. Not only this, but fans also spotted a friendly request from Zendaya towards one of the prominent WTA players during the event.
