Leonard was at the Arena to see the LA Clippers lock horns with the LA Lakers. The 31-year-old is currently sidelined with a knee injury.

Incidentally, Gauff shared a celebrity moment with the LA Clippers player in 2019 when she attended a game against the Toronto Raptors. Leonard was playing for the Raptors at the time and Gauff took to Instagram that day to share her joy at meeting him.

“I met a pretty funny guy tonight,” she captioned her post.

Gauff signed her first contract with New Balance in 2018 when she was just 14 years old. Four years later, she signed a long-term extension with the brand. In remembrance of the extended partnership, New Balance launched a new colorway for the already available Coco CG1 performance tennis shoes on November 3.
