Serena’s US Open racket art fetches $$$

The twisted graphite sculpture is a symbol of the drama that ensued on Arthur Ashe Stadium, when Serena Williams met Naomi Osaka in the 2018 US Open final.

It’s also money in the bank after being auctioned off by Goldin Auctions


Someone paid $20,910 for it.

You feel for 22-year-old Justin Arrington-Holmes, a Boston College student and tennis player who was a ballperson that day.

Williams had given it to him. Last summer he took it to a collectibles place after cleaning out his closet, and got … $500.

The store had already sold it to someone else, who then auctioned it.
