Serena Williams Wins Big At US Open, Turns Heads With Outfit

Serena Williams' tennis outfits are often the talk of the town, and she set NY tongues wagging with her latest creation in a routine opening victory at the U.S. Open Monday.

Serena Williams made a triumphant return to the US Open on Monday, opening her bid for a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title with a 6-4, 6-0 first-round victory over Magda Linette.

Williams has had a hard build-up to the tournament, suffering her most one-sided loss ever when she won just a single game against Johanna Konta in San Jose - she subsequently revealed she had learned just before the match that the man who killed her half-sister had been released from prison.

"I love playing here in NY, I have always loved it", she said.

Willams said the tutu was actually "easy to play in" and even "aerodynamic". After noting that she wears tight designs to prevent the blood clots she's been experiencing after giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian past year; she said they would "come to an understanding".

The tennis legend has confirmed that she will not be celebrating her baby girl's first birthday, due to her beliefs as a Jehovah's Witness.

On Instagram, the Off-White founder and artistic director at Louis Vuitton Men's shared his excitement over the US Open look writing, "willing to design dresses for her for life". She also revealed, amid the controversy, that she felt it empowered her as she headed into a match.

None of that mattered against Linette, whom Williams dismissed in 70 minutes as she struck 23 winners and made 18 unforced errors. "I feel like if and when they know that some things are for health reasons, then there's no way that they wouldn't be OK with it", she said.

'Olympia doesn't celebrate birthdays, ' the 36-year-old tennis pro said.

Over the years we've seen her play in a studded biker jacket, a pink leopard print bodycon dress, a white trench coat, and a pleated denim skirt with knee-high sneakers.
