It was not the imposing performance many have come to expect from Williams as the six-time champion continued to scrape the rust off her game following the birth of her first child.
For her first match in this year's US Open on Monday against Madga Linette of Poland, the 36-year-old, 23 time Grand-Slam victor wore basically a tutu, which didn't stop, help or hinder her playing a sensational tennis match, beating Linette in two sets: 6-4, 6-0.
So far there has not been any comment from the officials at the U.S. Open about the outfit she wore for Monday's match.
Here Serena is holding the Wimbledon trophy as she wears the traditional tennis whites. No longer like Court docket, all of Williams' most crucial trophies had been won within the extra excessive-stakes atmosphere of expert tennis.The bewitch in opposition to Linette improves Williams' chronicle to 18-0 in US Open first-spherical matches.
But then Serena being the boldest and sassiest in all terms, literally turned heads when she entered the court wearing a one-shoulder outfit which literally set the NY tongues wagging.
"He's (Guidicelli) been so easy to talk to", Williams said.
Serena Williams said because of the rules against birthdays as a Jehovah Witness, she won't be celebrating her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian who would be clocking 1 later this week. "I'm just going to be on that road until I get there".
"The other day on a flight home Olympia insisted on running up and down the aisle and when I finally got her to sit still, she threw up all over me", Williams tweeted. She began her US Open campaign against Caroline Dolehide of the United States of America, of whom much is expected in the future. Murray, who said he didn't think it was realistic that he could win the title, could play 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro in the third round. Whatsoever, we are loving how Serena rocked in that tutu outfit.
"When it comes to fashion", the 23-time Grand Slam champ said, "You don't want to be a repeat offender". I'm a better player now than a few years ago, even if the ranking doesn't show it.
