At the 2019 US Open, 23-year-old American professional tennis player Taylor Townsend earned her first win against a top 10 player when she upset world No. 4 Simona Halep in a third-set tiebreaker in the second round. In the third round, Townsend faces 29-year-old Romanian pro Sorana Cirstea on Saturday, August 31 at 11 am at the Louis Armstrong Stadium.
A few weeks before the US Open, Townsend shared a photo (above) in which she’s wearing a cute casual outfit: a black bandeau top with cargo pants which reveals her tummy. She captioned it with a line from DaBaby’s (explicit) single 4x: “I got the juice like I’m Snapple, I’m viral.”
Avid tennis fan, Townsend friend, and Station 19 TV star Boris Kodjoe commented: “Go get it Tay.” (He also knows Serena Williams…)
A number of fellow tennis pros chimed in too when they saw the photo including Spaniard Feliciano Lopez, and Jessie Pegula who wrote: “Loving this insta comeback”. Shelby Rogers “agreed” with Pegula; Asia Muhammad wrote: “How cute ru tho” and Jenny Brady added: “feelin herself” with a fire and applause emojis.
