INSECURE’s Yvonne Orji shows how to celebrate US Open Finals Weekend from home with Grey Goose

The 2020 US Open may be coming to a close this weekend, but the excitement is far from over: last night, in a stunning late-night victory, Victoria Azarenka defeated superstar Serena Williams, ending her latest bid for a 24th Grand Slam singles title. Some of the best moments of the tournament are still to come, and while fans can’t cheer from the stands this year, Emmy-nominated actress and comedian Yvonne Orji is showing fans how to recreate the stadium-energy from home.

The HBO Insecure star and tennis lover has been tapped as the official Grey Goose “Hype Woman” for the 2020 US Open Finals, and posted a video on Instagram last night showing fans how she brings the stadium-vibes to her living room. In a doubles tennis match with her “sister” on their kitchen table, the team channel their inner Venus and Serena. Though they didn’t make it to the Grand Slam, Orji toasted to a great game with a Honey Deuce, the signature drink of the US Open, saying “at least one of these serves was an ace”.

As the final few athletes battle it out, Yvonne will be here all weekend long serving up stadium energy and Honey Deuces for fans tuning into the action from home. Tennis lovers looking to follow her lead can order the Honey Deuce Cocktail Kit* for same-day or next-day delivery, and receive all the ingredients needed to create the cocktail at home—including a bottle of Grey Goose and a set of highly-collectable US Open cups.

Below, please find a link to all of Yvonne’s US Open content, including videos and photos (featuring a FaceTime appearance from her Insecure co-star, Jay Ellis), as well as links to purchase the Honey Deuce Cocktail Kit. Please let me know if Yvonne Orji’s content might be a fit for your coverage this weekend.



*Honey Deuce Cocktail Kits are available in NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Nashville, and Washington D.C.
