Serena Williams Dominates the French Open In a Powerful Catsuit Outfit

Serena Williams Dominates the French Open In a Powerful Catsuit Outfit

Serena Williams is on fire this week with her winning work on the singles and doubles court in Paris, her clothing store opening, her docuseries wrapping, and appearing on the cover of Harper's Bazaar UK.

The victory comes just one day after Serena won her first grand slam match against Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic in a 7-6, 6-4 first-round victory, 14 months after giving birth.

Barty took the first set 6-3 with typically combative, speedy play and Williams had it all to do to turn the match around.

The match between tennis' two comeback queens turned the instant Williams released a primal roar after blasting a backhand return victor after being broken in the opening game of the second set. I always wanted to be a superhero, and it's kind of my way of being a superhero.

Serena hasn't lost in the second round of a grand slam since the 2014 French Open. Williams broke in the seventh and held in the eighth to set a 5-3 lead, which she converted on serve to win the second set 6-4.

While Williams loves the bond breastfeeding allowed her to share with Olympia, she said she also missed certain things: "The truth is I miss my body, being able to do other kinds of wonderful things. She's so young, I don't really bring her".

"I had a lot of problems with my blood clots", she said.

Next up for Williams is Australia's 17th seed Ashleigh Barty.

"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of, [a] queen from Wakanda", Williams said on the Tennis Channel.

But Williams drew on her unrivalled fighting qualities - and energy reserves some doubted she still possesses at nearly 37 and eight months into motherhood - to stave off Australia's 17th seed after one hour and 46 minutes.

The 23-time grand slam victor revealed the outfit was as much about functionality as style.

I'm concerned about Serena's conditioning, as it catches up to everyone who isn't consistently playing.

"I feel like in 2018 the world's different. And one of her best assets is that when her back is against the wall, the best comes out".

Whatever happens over the next two weeks, Williams insists her family priorities have eased the expectations on her as a player. So, on top of just looking downright badass, it turns out the catsuit helped optimize her performance given her medical condition.
