French Open Bans Serena Williams’ ‘Black Panther’ Catsuit, Hollywood Backlash Ensues

He said: "The combination of Serena this year, for example, it will no longer be accepted".

An outstanding athlete - she has won an astonishing 39 major titles and 23 Grand Slams - Williams has proved she has the grit, determination and sheer gumption to become a sporting great.

Last month, Serena Williams called out the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for constantly targeting her in "random" drug testing, and now her attire is being targeted.

She recently returned to tennis after a spell of maternity leave, and will compete in this year's US Open, beginning tomorrow.

About the suit, Serena had said, "I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of queen from Wakanda maybe".

Earlier this year, new GM CEO Mary Barra turned heads when she replaced the company's 10-page dress code with two words, "dress appropriately". In Williams' case, this happens to an appalling degree, whether it is fellow players stuffing towels down their shirts and shorts in a mockery of her physique or commentators banging on about her "aggressive" play.

Evert suggested it might be hard for Williams to switch off from her mother role to become the fierce competitor she has to be to win a Grand Slam.

O.J. denied he could reveal any details about their murder, contending: "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife". Sacha Baron Cohen saved pranking one of the most notorious public figures for last, interviewing O.J.

"All the moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and have to come back and try to be fierce, in the middle of everything".

Among the other top contenders are in-form world number one Simona Halep, Stephens and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber.

The six-time US Open champion made it clear that the catsuit won't make a return appearance in NY when the year's final Grand Slam starts on Monday.

"She's confident, you can see it". "The last couple weeks she was down in matches and she pulled these matches out".

When Williams participated in the 2018 French open nine months after giving birth to her daughter, she wore the black Nike jumpsuit because it was created to prevent blood clots. I've gotten used to the conditions here.

"It just is going to be if she can get the crowd on her side and be inspired. So I think its fine".
