Serena Williams pokes French tennis stiffs in the eye with her tutu

❝ For the stylish 23-time Grand Slam champion’s first match of the 2018 U.S. Open, Williams sported a one-shoulder black athletic tennis dress with a ballerina-esque tutu skirt. The outfit was created by Louis Vuitton and Off-White designer Virgil Abloh…

❝ Williams, who emerged from her first round of the US Open victorious, made headlines for her on-court fashion just days earlier after French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli told Tennis Magazine that the catsuit that Williams wore to the tournament this year will “no longer be accepted…one must respect the game and the place.”

Every sport has the odd official more concerned with conformity to social norms than experiments which may advance the skill of athletes. Serena answered the French Federation’s Grande Poobah with style and humor.
