Serena Williams slays at US Open in tennis tutu amid catsuit controversy

The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion took down her opponent in her first home slam since becoming a mother while rocking a striking one-shoulder dress designed by Virgil Abloh.

On social media, where the designer tutu was a hit with fans, people applauded Williams for continuing to wear what she wants. Ok, I'll go with a tutu and fishnets then. Especially as the reason she was wearing the catsuit in the first place was that it had been specifically created to help prevent blood clots - which is an ongoing health issue for her. The president of the French Federation, he's been really unbelievable.

"I thought I just have to be aggressive and try to stay calm", said Kanepi, whose run to the quarter-finals a year ago is just one of her six trips to the last eight in majors.

While former tennis star Billie Jean King came to Williams' defense and said the "policing of women's bodies must end", Williams herself had a much lighter response to the whole ordeal.

In paying their respects, fans arrived the venue as early as possible just to see her body delivered in a gold-plated casket. For all the formality, however, Owens said the viewings are meant to be welcoming and accessible for her legions of fans.

"I think I'm getting there", added Williams, who reached the final at Wimbledon only to fall short of matching Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles.

"I love opening for Serena Williams", Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson told the crowd before she launched into her anthem Stronger. Can't wait to see what she wears next. She dominated her first US Open match against Magda Linette from Poland. "I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess, a queen from Wakanda maybe", she said. Even Minaj, whose new album is titled Queen, took to Instagram to give all praise to Williams.

According to Williams, who discussed her US Open dress with Vogue magazine, her newest outfit choice made her feel "very strong and feminine". It really embodies what I always say: "that you can be strong and attractive at the same time".
