Several stars were at the US Open on Monday night to watch Serena Williams, including legendary boxer Mike Tyson. 

In fact, Tyson went viral during Williams' first-round match against Danka Kovinic. 

When the cameras at Arthur Ashe Stadium were on Tyson, it appeared as if he was on another planet. This brief moment ended up becoming a meme on Twitter. 

As you'd expect, sports fans were quite amused by Tyson's appearance at the US Open. 

"Wonder where his mind is at this moment," a fan tweeted. 

"The shrooms be hitting hard," another fan wrote after watching this video. 

"Mike Tyson 2.0 knockout strain hit him gooooood.. 1-2 KO punch," a third fan said.

It's unclear if Tyson will return to Arthur Ashe Stadium this Wednesday evening to watch Williams' second-round match against Anne Kontaveit. 

Williams and Kontaveit are currently scheduled to square off at 7 p.m. ET. This match will be televised on ESPN.
