By any metric, tennis players crushed this years Met Gala. For tennis fans, perhaps the greatest moment of all was a surprise photo with Venus, Serena and Maria Sharapova.


Venus broke down the interaction on her Instagram series Tennis Thursday.

"First of all Serena and I were talking about her the day before,” Venus said. “We wish she was still playing. And we saw her and we both told her separately we wish you were still on tour."

"Even though players compete hard on the court for years we still love and respect each other. There was hugs there was laughing there were stories, and there was a photo."

At the end, Venus formally invited both Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki to come back on tour.
