Serena Williams blew off TV appearances after post US Open partying: Report

Morning TV hosts were left staring into their decorative coffee cups after Serena Williams missed all of her appearances because she partied until the early hours of Monday morning with Caroline Wozniacki after winning the US Open Sunday.

The 32-year-old Williams was due on NBC’s “Today” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” followed by “Live With Kelly and Michael” with her trophy on Monday morning after winning her 18th Grand Slam title.

But was a no-show.

The tennis star canceled her appearances because she was too tired after she celebrated with her friend and final opponent Wozniacki — who’s become close to Williams following Wozniacki’s public breakup with golfer Rory McIlroy, reports Page Six of the NY Post.

Williams' missed bookings left gaps bigger than Michael Strahan's grin-splitter in the talk shows' lineups.

The two finalists were spotted having a good time at Manhattan hot spots Tao and VIP Room, where they posted pictures of themselves with Joe Jonas and model Gigi Hadid.

Fellow clubgoers at VIP Room said Williams’ group of nearly 30 ordered Champagne and vodka and danced until around 3 a.m.

Williams — who withdrew from Wimbledon earlier this summer after a “viral illness” left her disoriented — had been out late, her team, including her agent and publicist, decided she was “too tired” to do a round of TV shows on a few hours’ sleep after two weeks of intense competition.

She did make a 10:30 a.m. appearance at the Empire State Building Monday morning for a photo shoot.
