Here are the best U.S. Open Tennis memes of all time
Tennis and fencing, believe it or not, are sports that are made for a global pandemic. There’s a mandatory distance between the players, you don’t touch each other, it actually makes a lot of sense. So it’s unsurprising that the US Open Tennis is well underway. This long-running hard court tennis tournament features five main competitions: men’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s singles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
There have been some controversies already with the 2020 US Open. Novak Djokovic was disqualified from the tournament due to hitting a linesman on the head with a pitch in his match against Pablo Carreño Busta. The Serbian tennis star is the number one men’s player in the world. Needless to say, there were memes about the 2020 US open and tennis in general made.
Here are some of the funniest.

And then we look up who Djokovic is and now we’re getting tennis commercials on everything.

2. Don’t tempt him
Maybe just keep away from tennis ball looking haircuts for a while.

3. The real question is should we really feel bad for him?
Because, y-i-k-e-s, these are not a good look for him at all.

5. The tennis grunting
Driving loved ones insane for years as people just try to watch the sport. Meanwhile, they’re trying to figure out where that noise is coming from.

7. Permission to hug?
Zvonareva and Siegemund won the US Open doubles title and asked for permission to hug. Is it a meme? No. But it’s cute as hell so let’s put it on the list.
