Yankees’ Aaron Judge watches Alexander Zverev’s five-set thriller against Jannik Sinner at the US Open with wife Samantha
New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge swapped the diamond for the court Monday night as he soaked up the action at the US Open.
The star slugger, 31, enjoyed a night at Arthur Ashe Stadium with his wife Samantha, 30.
The couple were treated to a packed evening schedule in Flushing Meadows as they watched Aryna Sabalenka down Daria Kasatkina in straight sets before Alexander Zverev triumphed over Jannik Sinner in a five-set thriller.
The six-foot-seven right fielder swapped his pinstripes for a more laidback style as he donned a baggy, cream Rhude t-shirt with a pair of navy pants, topping the look off with white Nike sneakers and a chain.
Samantha also cut a casual, chic figure in wide-leg, navy jeans and a simple white, fitted t-shirt, embracing the tennis theme with a navy sweater tied around her shoulders and a Rolex cap.

Judge’s appearance at the US Open came on the Yankees off day between series as they return to the Bronx Tuesday night following a clean sweep over the Astros, getting revenge after Houston handed them a humiliating defeat in the ALCS last season.
While Judge may not have been stepping up to the plate at Yankee Stadium, he still wasn’t far from a ballpark with New York rivals the Mets’ stadium, Citi Park, located opposite the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Judge recently made a long-awaited return to the Yankees lineup amid the Bronx Bombers woes.
A desperate New York was without the services of its captain for almost two months after he injured his toe by careening into the bullpen gate at Dodger Stadium on June 3.
The Yankees activated him off the injured list on July 28 ahead of their game against the Baltimore Orioles.
However, even with their superstar back in the lineup, the Yankees struggled throughout August hitting a nine-game losing streak – their worst since 1982.
Judge came to their rescue on August 23 by smashing three home runs in a win over the Washington Nationals to snap the streak and avoid the team’s worst run for 110 years.

The Pinstripes’ hopes of making the postseason, however, are practically non-existent after the team entered September in last place in the AL East.
Meanwhile, Judge will have put the Yankees’ woes to one side Monday night to enjoy the tennis talent on offer on the Arthur Ashe stage.
But play was disrupted during Zverev’s win over Sinner after the German claimed a fan ‘said the most famous Hitler phrase.’
The fourth-round tie was paused while security escorted the spectator out following Zverev’s complaint to the umpire.
