Serena Williams’ ‘Wakanda-Inspired Catsuit’ Banned By French Open

Serena Williams’ ‘Wakanda-Inspired Catsuit’ Banned By French Open”

A lot of uniforms for the 2019 French Open have already been designed, but Giudicelli said tournament officials will ask designers if they can review them ahead of time.

"It will no longer be accepted". Always I say number one in the world without a Grand Slam, you are not a real number one. In fact she spoke of an entente cordiale over the issue with the French tennis authorities, even though part of the outfit's objective was to protect her from the blood clots that have seriously endangered her health in the past. After she gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, she had been experiencing blood clots in her legs.

Nike responded to the ruling with a play on the "Black Panther" theme, posting on Instagram: "You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers".

"That I would be the favorite at this point, nearly a year after having a baby, is quite interesting", Serena told reporters at her pre-tournament press conference on Saturday. "I'm always asking my friends in fashion about what's the new color, or the latest trend, so I can translate that in our collections", Williams once told the Times. I just feel like I take it just as serious, if not more.

Like most sports, tennis has long had a dress code. Didn't Anne White wear a white catsuit during Wimbledon? 2.

"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", Williams said.

But the catsuit question was the first she faced.

What, exactly, about Serena's look implies that she doesn't "respect the game" is beyond us, honestly.

At 37, Williams is past the age that's considered "prime" in her sport, but her dominance is undeniable. "But I've been working on just taking things more easy and being more light". "I'ts been just really a few months into me playing after having a baby". I've been working incredibly hard.
