Mrs. Serena Williams, 23-time Singles Grand Slam Champion, greatest tennis player of all time, doesn't need to attend a tournament that is blatantly racist and misogynist. "I've always wanted to be a superhero, and it's my way of being a superhero".

Williams looked like she would cruise to victory when she took a 5-2 lead in the second set but fatigue appeared to set in for the 38-year-old as temperatures soared to 93 degrees Fahrenheit (34°C) amid high humidity.

In an interview with Tennis Magazine, French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli said the tournament will be instituting a new dress code starting next year, and that the catsuit will be on the banned list because "I think that sometimes we've gone too far".

"I think I'm getting there", added Williams, who reached the final at Wimbledon only to fall short of matching Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles.

Williams is said to have experienced complications during the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, something that prompted the tennis player to don catsuits. First, they denied her seeding in the 2018 French Open after she took a 14 month hiatus from playing to recover from having a baby. She went on, "My whole team is basically French, so, yeah, we have a wonderful relationship".

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. The "respect" that's needed is for the exceptional talent ⁦@serenawilliams⁩ brings to the game.

"It's easy to play in, kind of aerodynamic with the one arm free", said Williams.

"I'm sure we will come to an understanding and everything will be okay".

Giudicelli pointed to Williams' catsuit, explaining that it "will no longer be accepted", according to the Associated Press.

On Monday night, Williams defeated No. 68-ranked Magda Linette in the first round of the U.S. Open. But I'm not. I work just as hard - harder actually. At the French Open, which she has won three times, Williams won three matches, including over the No 17 and 11 seeds, before pulling out with a shoulder injury before an anticipated encounter with Maria Sharapova.
