US Open: Serena and Venus Williams take step towards third-round clash

The statement-making look came just days after French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli singled out Serena for her black compression catsuit she debuted at the French Open in Paris this past May.

We can't wait to see Serena Williams' next match (and outfit). (Williams wears trousers to play tennis in order to keep her "blood circulation going" after experiencing blood clots post-pregnancy.) The athlete responded that she has "found other methods" to handle the issue, and even slid in a quick joke about the whole controversial debate.

Serena Williams' US Open outfit has won love on Twitter. I mean, we know Serena Williams is a nerd, so the possibilities are endless, and she will do so with the grace and dignity that has allowed her to be a champion. "One must respect the game and the place".

"The other day on a flight home Olympia insisted on running up and down the aisle and when I finally got her to sit still, she threw up all over me", Williams wrote in a tweet Sunday.

Williams entered the night session at Arthur Ashe Stadium wearing a $900 black bomber jacket with white stitching, over a $500 black-and-brown one-shoulder silhouette dress with tulle skirt.




"Olympia doesn't celebrate birthdays", said Williams. "Yeah, the tutu is easy to play in because I practiced in it before".

In 2002 Serena first revealed her religious beliefs, telling Asap Sport: "I am Jehovah's Witness". Ok, I'll go with a tutu and fishnets then. "It is one of those feeling I only get here in NY". Abloh, an American designer and artistic director of Louis Vuitton's men's wear collection has been collaborating with Williams for this new collection for Nike.

Rafael Nadal also weighed into the Williams fashion debate and the French Open's ban after his first round win against compatriot David Ferrer at the US Open.

"Just got to play, hopefully, get there", she said.
