Serena Williams’ ‘Wakanda-Inspired Catsuit’ Banned By French Open

Serena Williams delivered a serve on day seven of The Roland Garros 2018 French Open in June

French sporting elites don't appreciate Serena Williams' fashion sense.

Shouldn't the focus be on the incredible talent that she i and not what she wears. if only men in sport faced the same bullshit. The full-length outfit is created to protect against blood clots.

Tim Clayton - Corbis via Getty Images Serena Williams, pictured last May in the tournament, said her "Wakanda-inspired catsuit" made her feel like a superhero.

The French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli, says the tournament that Williams has won three times is introducing a dress code to regulate players" uniforms because "I think that sometimes we've gone too far'.

"I feel like a warrior in it, a warrior princess. from Wakanda, maybe", she told reporters in May, referring to the movie Black Panther. 'One must respect the game and the place'. "I'm always living in a fantasy world".

Trump orders Mike Pompeo to delay North Korea trip, blasts China
Pompeo had said that Biegun was to travel with him to Pyongyang next week. There were no plans for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

She wore the outfit at Roland Garros in May, nine months after giving birth to her daughter and nearly losing her life. The French Open, however, won't let Williams continue to send that message, as the tournament has announced that limitations will be imposed on what players can wear. But the birth was followed by a six-day medical crisis in which Williams suffered blood clots in her lungs, and she says she almost died.

Williams wore the skin-tight black catsuit for her opening match at Roland Garros this year, a 7-6 (4), 6-4 win over Kristyna Pliskova on Court Philippe Chatrier, saying it made her feel like a superhero and dedicating it to new mothers. Players having to wear white at Wimbledon is a time-honored tradition.

Given every reason Williams cited for wearing it, this seems more disrespectful than the catsuit.

"I had a lot of problems with my blood clots, and, God, I don't know how many I have had in the past 12 months".

And with Serena on the verge of launching her collaboration with Nike and Louis Vuitton head of menswear Virgil Abloh - the so called "Queen Collection" - some had alternative kits in mind.
