Serena: No Birthday Party for Olympia because of Religion

  • Serena Williams preps for the U.S. Open by reflecting on some moments as a mom. More

Fashionable tennis force Serena Williams took it in stride when she learned recently that officials at the French Open had made a decision to ban catsuits, like the Black Panther-inspired one she wore at this year's tournament.

Serena's choice of attire didn't go down well with the French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli, who in a magazine interview last week, called for a stricter dress code during the showpiece event.

While Williams told the press she accepted Guidicelli's decision, she got back at him in the first round of the U.S. Open on Monday, August 27.

Meanwhile world No. 1 Simona Halep has been knocked out in the US Open first round, after she was beaten 6-2 6-4 by Estonian Kaia Kanepi.

The tutu dress came specially designed by Virgil Abloh, the founder of Off-White and current artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear, bringing a high fashion twist to the court.

People have applauded Williams for wearing what she wants.

Serena and Venus Williams are now one win away from facing each other in the third round, with the victor of that meeting no longer having Halep in their path.

Serena Williams has won a new legion of fans since the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia.

"But I'm happy to get through the match".

Google denies rigging search results against Trump
The report's findings were gathered from an analysis of Google search results for "Trump" using the search engine's "News" tab. Google searches aim to surface the most relevant pages in response to a user's query, even before he or she finishes typing.

Each competition has its own rules, for example at Wimbledon, which is the strictest, players must wear "almost entirely white" and "white does not include off white or cream"!

What do you think about the ban on Williams' tennis court fashion?

The tennis star has confirmed that she won't actually be celebrating her little one's first birthday because of her belief as a Jehovah's Witness.

As for playing in a Tutu, Williams said it was "easy to play in" and "aerodynamic", which means we could possibly see more tutus from Williams, and maybe a full Sailor Moon-inspired outfit or a waterbender Katara-inspired look from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

"It's easy to play in", Williams said in a news conference afterwards.

This isn't the first time a woman has donned a one-piece bodysuit for the game.

Another said: "They didn't let Serena Williams wear her catsuit".

Linette could not cope with her power and accuracy in a 28-minute set, winning just nine points as Williams sealed victory with a 114mph ace out wide.
