After rocking the shit out of a black catsuit at the 2018 French Open as an inspirational shout out to all the new moms like herself, the Open banned the onesie at future championships. Despite the fact that catsuits and tennis aren’t anything new, apparently seeing one of Williams black body was enough to make them shut shit down. “I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess,” Williams said during a press conference, adding that she felt like a queen from Wakanda, the fictional nation in the movie “Black Panther. I’ve always wanted to be a superhero”. “It’s kind of my way of being a superhero.”

In addition to that, wearing pants to help with her post-natal blood circulation also informed her choice to wear the catsuit, functional and informative to other women who might experience similar complications when carrying children.

Never one to stand down to her haters and the white supremacy that informs the ways in which the tennis world treats her, the GOAT fired back by rocking a pretty-ass tutu at the U.S. Open! A collaboration between Nike and designer Virgil Abloh, the tutu was as fierce as Williams’ game. And, yeah, she beat Poland’s Magda Linette, too. #unfuckwitable
