(April 21, 2013) Pop star Redfoo of LMFAO has never been shy sharing with the world his love for tennis. Local Southern California fans will get to see Stefan Gordy, a.k.a Redfoo, in action on the courts at one of the oldest and largest tennis tournaments in the country as he takes on Weil Academy junior Zhang Liang to kick off the 114th annual Ojai Tennis Tournament.
Redfoo is the son of Motown Records founder Barry Gordy and is currently dating WTA world-ranked No. 4 tennis player Victoria Azarenka. He is most known for his hit songs “Party Rock Anthem” and “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” Redfoo played in the USTA US Open National Playoff qualifying event last year in Northern California and will attempt to qualify for a spot in the US Open again next month. For the past two years, he has lent his Party Rock name to the USTA Women’s Pro Circuit $50,000 event in Las Vegas: the Party Rock Open. He is currently being coached by six-time past Ojai Open champion Lester Cook, who will play in the Open singles and doubles main draw on Thursday.
