Former President Bill Clinton and Dr. Ruth Westheimer were seen having a conversation Monday night at the U.S. Open.

The notable sex therapist whispered in Clinton’s ear as the two were seated next to each other in Arthur Ashe Stadium to watch the match between Serena Williams and Montenegrin tennis player Danka Kovinic.
