While pro tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams faced each other in an exciting U.S. Open match, the stars of Broadway’s Wicked worked their magic to get a hold of the coveted U.S. Open Tennis Championship Trophy.
Caroline Bowman (Elphaba) and Kara Lindsay (Glinda) may not be sisters like the Williams athletes, but they sure are champions nevertheless.
