French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli had made it known in an interview in Tennis Magazine’s 500th edition, that the French Open will be introducing a dress code to regulate players’ uniform.
Reacting to the news, sportswear brand Nike took to Instagram to support Williams, sharing a photo of her wearing the catsuit and writing: “You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers. #justdoit”
Now Serena herself has reacted.
Serena was asked about the news at her pre-US Open press conference this past weekend and, according to ESPN, she said “I don’t know exactly what he seemed to say…but we already talked…we have a great relationship. We talked yesterday, so, everything’s fine guys. When it comes to fashion, you don’t want to be a repeat offender! It’ll be a while before this even has to come up again”
