Redfoo and his girlfriend, Victoria Azarenka , the world's second-ranked female tennis player, could both compete in the U.S. Open in New York this summer.

The LMFAO member has entered the U.S. Open National Playoffs -- a series of tournaments that ultimately grants its champions spots in the U.S. Open. He will compete under his birth name, Stefan Gordy .

Redfoo will compete in both men's singles and mixed doubles, the latter of which will allow him to pair up with a 17-year-old he coaches, Ayaka Okuno .

The U.S. Open National Playoffs awards the men's and women's singles champions with spots in the U.S. Open Qualifying Tournament, and the mixed doubles champions with a spot in the U.S. Open main draw.

Redfoo says in a statement , "As a kid, it’s always been a dream of mine to play professional tennis." He adds, "Thanks to the U.S. Open National Playoffs for giving good players with a dream the chance to qualify for one of the biggest tournaments -- the U.S. Open. Every day I see my dream!”

The U.S. Open begins August 26.
