Anna Wintour returned to the US Open tennis courts on Friday afternoon in her first appearance during the 2019 tournament to watch one of her favorite tennis players of all time, the Swiss star Roger Federer.
The editor-in-chief of Vogue, 69, is known to appear at most major tennis matches – especially when Roger Federer or Serena Williams are expected on the pitch.
On Friday, she appeared at the US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York, in a floral red dress – which has become a distinctive look for the fashion icon.
Ready to cheer: Anna Wintour returned to the US Open tennis courts on Friday afternoon to see friend Roger Federer play during the third round
All smiles: the editor-in-chief of Vogue, 69, wore a red flower dress and her distinctive black tones for the competition in Queens, New York
Aim: Anna saw Federer compete against Dan Evans from Great Britain to advance to the round of 16
On the warm Friday, she opted for a dress with short sleeves that flowed to Wintour's ankles.
The dress with red and blue flowers spread across the fabric was then combined with a bright blue handbag, which she held close to her chest when she was looking for her chair.
Wintour also wore a few dark shades, another staple in her wardrobe, when she saw Federer compete against Dan Evans in Britain in the third round of the tournament.
She appeared excitedly for what her first game of the US Open believed, because Wintour was shown with a smile from the stands.
Fortunately for Wintour, she saw Federer Evans beat after 82 minutes of playing time.
But there was controversy around the game and the time it was played on Friday, during which Evans claimed that he had too fast a turn around compared to Federer because he had ended a game the night before at 6 p.m.
Evans, 29, is in 59th place in the world and well-known Federer was & # 39; too good & # 39; after the match. But he also expressed frustration about the game at noon.
& # 39; Do you think I have anything to say about that? & # 39; Evans said about the start time. & # 39; There are probably about four people in this tournament who have a say when they play, maybe three. & # 39;
Always a fashionista: the dress with red and blue flowers spread over the fabric was then combined with a clear blue handbag
Happy to be here: Wintour is a well-known tennis superfan and often takes time off from her busy schedule to see her favorite players, Federer and Serena Williams, play
Good news: she saw Federer beat Evans and easily moved on to the round of 16
Victory: Federer will play again in the round of 16 next week, although it remains unclear who he will play against
He added: & # 39; Of course Roger would rather go through that game than I do, so it's understandable. & # 39;
Federer, who is in third place, was asked during the post-match interview if he specifically asked for a daytime match to have a competitive edge over Evans.
& # 39; I can't remember asking for something, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Yes. It might be nice to be out of the sun too, I don't know, I thought. But I didn't do it on purpose. & # 39;
Ignoring everything: after his game on Friday, the Swiss tennis player received some allegations that he had specifically asked to hold the game during the day. Federer has rejected all claims
He added: & # 39; But that doesn't mean like & # 39; Roger asks, Roger gets & # 39 ;. Just remember, because I've heard this sh ** too often now. I'm tired of apparently being the boss. & # 39;
With Federer & # 39; s win over Evans on Friday, this means he will play again for the round of 16 next week, and Wintour can then appear to encourage him again.
The tennis superfan and friend have made it a tradition to appear for both Federer and Williams when they play big tournaments.
According to Federer, Wintour even helps with fashion advice for Federer AOL.
& # 39; Sometimes I called her in the past and asked her for [fashion] advice, & # 39; he said last year.
& # 39; Sometimes she wants to know what I'm going to wear. She asked me what I was wearing at the US Open and I would show her and she has her comments and sometimes when I have choices I will show her.
& # 39; Especially when it comes to New York and Wimbledon. She really wants to know what is going on for everyone. & # 39;
