In one video circulating on X (formerly Twitter), both of the 27-year-old actors smiled and shared a laugh as they appeared to spot themselves on the big screen.

The Dune: Part Two actress stunned in an all-white tennis zip up and skirt for the occasion, while her long-time boyfriend opted for some tinted shades and an open shirt.

In another adorable video from their courtside date, the pair sang along from their seats to Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Zendaya later joined the women’s singles winner, Polish player Iga Świątek, for some photos after the match with her championship trophy.

While talking with Świątek, one fan captured photo spotted the Spider-Man actor playing supportive boyfriend in the background and taking a snap of his girlfriend.

The unexpected tennis outing comes just as Zendaya is set to promote her upcoming sport romcom film Challengers, in which she plays tennis-player-turned-coach Tashi.

The film is set to be released in Australia on April 24, 2024.

In a heartwarming nod to their relationship, Zendaya wore a Rangers jersey with her boyfriend’s last name ‘Holland’ on the back and a 96 on the sleeve for their birth year.

While the duo were speculated to have split earlier this year, Holland confirmed they are still together when he reposted a photo of his girlfriend from Paris Fashion Week.
