Serena Williams wears zany outfit to the French Open after catsuit ban

she may have been banned from wearing a cat suit at last year's French Open but the controversy hasn't stopped serena williams making a fashion statement on the court the tennis star 37 turned heads in an unusual superhero inspired outfit designed by Virgil a blow and Nike the black and white ensemble even comes with a cape featuring the words mother champion Queen goddess in French although she did not wear this while playing it comes after Williams was banned from wearing her trademark cat suits with French tennis federation president Bernhard Juna celli saying in August of last year I believe we have sometimes gone too far Serena's outfit for example would no longer be accepted you have to respect the game in the place at the time it was thought that many of the custom outfits for this year's tournament were already well underway in terms of the design however jeu de chelly revealed that the FTF would be asking manufacturers to see them in advance he added that roland garros updated rules wouldn't be as strict as Wimbledon's which require that players wear white but would impose certain limits his announcement came just months after the 2018 tournament when Serena had spoken out to explain the medical reasoning behind her cat suit insisting that it was not meant to be a saucy fashion statement but rather a means of looking after her body following the birth of her daughter the aim of the long sleeves and legs was she said to protect her because of past bouts with blood clots with the outfit she also wanted to send about self-worth and feeling powerful as she returned to Grand Slam action about nine months after giving birth to her daughter Olympia Ohanian it feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally physically with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves she said at the time I definitely feel like it is an opportunity for me to inspire a whole different group of amazing women and kids while the mother of one seems to have stuck to the new rules regarding player attire she certainly wasn't willing to go down without a sartorial fight something she made very clear with her bold ensemble on Monday although perhaps more traditional than a cat suit in its skirt and top design the vibrant pattern and multiple layers meant that all eyes couldn't help but remain on Serena throughout the match which she won two sets to one even a she was warming up and began removing different layers upon her arrival at the court Serena was wearing a long sleeve jacket in the same pattern as her skirt with words like champion and goddess written in French across the front and framed in the traditional off-white double quotation marks when she began warming up the mother of one removed the jacket to reveal a plain black long-sleeved sports jacket which she wore for the first few points after that was removed it was revealed that serena had on a long-sleeved shirt in the same navy and white pattern as her skirt and cropped top finally she stripped down to the base look a crop top and skirt combo that had fishnet detailing across the stomach the day before her match Serena took to social media to reveal the full look behind her on-court ensemble sharing a series of powerful images of herself modeling the complete outfit which comes complete with a long skirt and cake style coverup in the black and white photos Serena can be seen proudly showing off the outfit while posing with its designer of whites Virgil a blur as well as several models wearing other off-white X Nike designs and her superhero outfit seems to have worked wonders as she overcame a slow start for a 2/2 6/6 tu-16 2-0 win over 80 third ranked battaglia dyachenko of russia in her opener williams had completed only three matches since her australian open ended four months ago and she cited a bothersome left knee when pulling out of her past two tournaments earlier this month Williams announced that she was pulling out of the Italian Open due to pain in her left knee saying in a statement I must withdraw from the Italian Open due to pain in my left knee so it may have come as no surprise to some to see the player needing a bit of time to ease into the match during an error filled first set Williams was constantly shaking her head and yelling at herself as she made a number of annoying mistakes but the 23 time Grand Slam champion quickly changed the momentum by winning the opening three games of the second set and from there she went on to dominate the second two sets of the match winning him 6 to 1 6 to 0 after committing 14 unforced errors in the first set Williams then had a total of 10 in the second and third sets following the match Williams seemed more relieved than pleased in avoiding what would have been only the second loss of her career in the first round of the Grand Slam tournament after her defeat to Virginie Razzano at Roland Garros in 2012 Williams came into the tournament ranked at number 10 behind her fellow American Sloane Stephens who was ranked at number 7 Japanese player Naomi Osaka who beat Williams in a controversial final match of the US Open last year is ranked at number 1
