The Obamas have a tight history with the sport of tennis, both playing recreationally (the First Lady picked up the sport shortly after law school) and enjoying it as spectators. First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Flushing Meadows on Friday morning for a light hit at an indoor facility while touting her “Let’s Move” campaign to fight childhood obesity.

I am on board with everything in that sentence. Now, let’s get the photos of Obama’s visit, which included her attending the men’s quarterfinal matches.

No one calls a foot fault on the First Lady. NO ONE.

“That was so 2009, Michelle. You should move on. I know I have.”

Gotta love the focus. The form? Needs a little work.

Now that’s some power, right there. In 2009, President Obama awarded Billie Jean King the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor.

The family that plays together, stays together.
