Some of the most prestigious celebrities enjoy attending the event for the thrill of the sport and a reason to celebrate victory over defeat.

One of their favorites to shine in the tournament was Serena Williams who very quickly beat out opponent, Carla Suarez Navarro. They also were eager to see Uzbekistan underdog, Denis Istomin, play his best to try and defeat the defending US Open Champion and the fan favorite, Andy Murray. Eyes became transfixed on Leo as the 'Titanic' theme song, 'My Heart Will Go On' played over the loud speaker and fans gazed in his direction. Adoring fans made their way up to get a photograph with him.
Professional tennis player, Novak Djokovic, made his way to the Moët & Chandon suite specifically to meet the actor for the very first time. The two had much in common and the actor was captivated by Novak. They exchanged conversation on the sport of tennis and how engaging it makes the fans as compared to other tennis tournaments. Leo is an avid tennis fan, as was evidenced by his interest in not only the sport but the tennis champs that play the game for the win. Boris Becker also made his way up to the suite to meet Leo.
Not only was Leo and his girlfriend mesmerized by the tennis event, but also sitting in the Moët & Chandon suite was long-time sitcom 'Friends' star, David Schwimmer and his wife and two friends as was fellow actor Lukas Haas.
On Thursday, September 5, 2013, another set of celebrities decided to view the US Open from the Moët & Chandon suite and take advantage of the sweetly flowing Moët Imperial Champagne.
Partaking in the pleasurable festivities were Amanda Seyfried, Chef Roble Ali, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Alan Cumming, Oliver Platt, Molly Sims, Al Roker and Rainn Wilson who each took an interest in the competition underway on the tennis court.
Seyfried picked Andy Murray as her favorite, cheering him on as he began the ill-fated final match of the tournament. Chef Roble was joined by a former Miss Jamaica as he chose his favorite. They were just in time for the special exhibition match which was a mixed double pairing. Jason Biggs and Rainn Wilson went up against a couple of the long-time experts, Chris Evert and Monica Seles.Tiffani-Amber Thiessen was being admired from afar as she watched the tournament from the suite. She asked her hubby, Brady, to bring her something sweet and in the name of love, so he brought her two macaroons and a golden goblet of Moët Imperial Champagne along with a napkin with the sentence, ""if you want something sweet, consider your hubby," written on it.
Thanks to Moët & Chandon and all the high-profile celebrites who relish in the sport of tennis at the US Open, one of the oldest and finest tournaments of its kind. They had an even better view of the action in the Moët & Chandon suite. It is safe to say that when the US Open comes to a close this year, the enthusiasm and energy of the crowds will continue to give it top ranking status in the world of sports.
