When Fox’s Holly Sonders gave Phil Mickelson an awkward hug following an interview at the U.S. Open, she received some criticism. And some had said reporters like ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi wouldn’t hug their interview subjects.

Well, maybe Tom wouldn’t give out hugs, but he will offer kisses. He gave Serena Williams an awkward kiss right after she walked off Centre Court following her 21st Grand Slam victory at Wimbledon.

Not sure if Tom had been yearning for a Serena kiss, but he made sure he got one. So awkward.
