Dream Big: Nike "Voice of Belief" Film Celebrates Serena Williams

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

This fashion choice comes on the heels of the French Open making a statement that Serena "I'm the fucking G.O.A.T" Williams will no longer be able to wear her catsuit on the court. "I think the French tennis president needs to have respect for women's bodies and accept that they come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and colors", said another. "They said. 'You may strip her from her superwoman suit but you can not strip her of her superpowers, ' and that is absolutely the truth".

She played in a custom-designed tutu by Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh and Nike in her match against Magda Linette.

Ahmadinejad has taken note of the controversy and chose to tweet his support for Serena Williams. Williams had said she suffered from blood clots during her pregnancy - the French Open appearance marked the 36-year-old's triumphant return to tennis after giving birth to her daughter.

"Humidity is always hard for me because I think I'm one of the biggest sweaters on tour", he added.

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.

Adding to the intrigue of the Williams sister's success here and their affection for each other is the fact that it's very possible they could play each other in the third round.

"It is such a great feeling to be back out here", said Williams. The black one-shoulder dress with full tulle skirt is part of Abloh's "Queen" collection for Nike, of which a limited number will be available for purchase at select Nike locations in the U.S. (no news if it will be available in Australia).

Williams at the time took the announcement in her stride, describing her relationship with the French Open organisers as wonderful.

When Williams competed in Wimbledon this year, she dedicated the match to working moms, saying: "For all the moms out there, I was playing for you today".

The tennis champion revealed that Olympian won't be celebrating her birthday as they belong to Jehovah's Witness church, a religious organisation that does not believe in birthday celebrations. Health benefits aside, Williams said the outfit made her feel like a "Warrior Princess" on the court.
