Video Transcript

[BELL RINGING]

JULIE HYMAN: Oh, look at that. It is Serena Williams--

BRIAN SOZZI: Yeah!

BRAD SMITH: What?

JULIE HYMAN: --ringing the opening bell here--

BRAD SMITH: Bing-bong.

JULIE HYMAN: --on this Friday as she's--

BRIAN SOZZI: Getting ready for the US Open.

JULIE HYMAN: --must be there for the US Open, right, which will be her swansong, right? She announced her retirement from tennis, but said she would still be playing in that tournament, which, of course, is played in Queens, New York. So just a hop, skip, and a jump across the bridge there from the New York Stock Exchange. So a lot of excitement there.

BRIAN SOZZI: Lynn Martin, NYSE president, doing the on stage [INAUDIBLE].

JULIE HYMAN: And notable, by the way, that behind her is not US Open or USTA, but rather what she says she is going to be spending more of her time on, Serena Ventures, which is her venture capital firm. And by the way, her husband also a venture capitalist, who we've talked to on the show before, Alexis Ohanian, who was one of the cofounders of Reddit and now is a big venture capital investor. Fun stuff there on Friday.

BRAD SMITH: Oh my gosh. I'm just flabbergasted.

JULIE HYMAN: Brad's really excited right now.

BRAD SMITH: I am just at a loss for words. Serena Williams--

JULIE HYMAN: Do you guys have your Open tickets yet?

BRAD SMITH: Oh, no. I need to get them.

JULIE HYMAN: You do need to get them.

BRIAN SOZZI: Yeah, I got mine.

JULIE HYMAN: I'm sure the prices are only going--

BRAD SMITH: Oh my goodness, they jumped, yeah.

JULIE HYMAN: --higher for the matches at which she's going to play.
