Apparently, LMFAO’s Redfoo, is a big tennis fan. His girlfriend is Victoria Azarenka, the No. 2 ranked women’s tennis player in the world, whether that’s a coincidence or not is of no interest to me.
What is interesting and frankly hilarious, is the fact that Redfoo plans to qualify for the US Open which takes place in August, according to a story via Yahoo Sports.
Redfoo has signed up to play in the USTA Northern California Sectional qualifying tournament in California and is attempting to make it to the bright lights of New York in both singles and mixed doubles. Redfoo will play under his real name, Stefan Gordy, and will be going at it in mixed doubles with 17-year-old Ayaka Okuno, who Redfoo coaches at the game.
”It’s always been a dream of mine to play professional tennis,” Redfoo told the Associated Press.
