Tennis world goes nuts over Serena's US Open outfit

Her wardrobe - from the pastel dress with matching fascinator she wore to the Royal Wedding to her bold yet pragmatic French Open catsuit - became a global fixation and, more recently, a global discussion when the head of the French Tennis Federation inexplicably singled out the catsuit for criticism.

Though one would be hard-pressed to find an area in the game in which Williams does not excel, it is when she is on the front foot that she is at her best.

Serena Williams, a six-time victor in NY who is seeded 17th after returning from maternity leave earlier in the year, didn't want to be drawn on playing her sister just yet.

Williams, 36, missed her home Slam a year ago, giving birth to daughter Olympia shortly after the tournament started.

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

The tennis champion wore the body suit after a return to the court after maternity at the French Opens, revealing her outfit made her feel like a "warrior princess" from Wakanda - the fictional nation where the film is set.

Posting a picture of Williams in her catsuit across their social media channels, Nike shared a message of support for their star, saying, "You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers".

Fans have gone wild over Williams' latest fashion statement.

The No. 16 seed Venus Williams will next line up against Italian Camila Giorgi, who defeated American wild card Whitney Osuigwe 6-4, 6-1.

Since her debut in 1998, Williams has easily remained one of the best dressed players on the tennis circuit.

"It's such a good feeling to be back out here", said Williams, who improved to 18-0 in first-round matches at Flushing Meadows and 68-1 in openers at all Slams.
