French tens Federation has come up with a dress code for what to wear and what not to during the match in the court. Calling Serena Williams black catsuit ‘not accepted’ French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli explained, one must respect the game and the place. Sometimes we have gone too far. Serena Williams had worn a skin tight black catsuit during this year’s French Open.
I think that sometimes we have gone too far. It will no longer be accepted. One must respect the game and the place,” said FDF President Bernard Giudicelli during a conversation with Associated Press.
According to Serena Williams, this suit makes her feel powerful and has helped her in her health recovery after giving birth to a girl child in September 2017. When the 36-year-old female athlete was asked about her unusual dress during a press conference in May, she gave a reference of the film Black Panther. She was noted saying,
“I feel like a warrior in it. I have always wanted to be a superhero, and it is kind of my way of being a superhero. I have had a lot of problems with my blood clots, God I don’t know how many I have had in the past 12 months,” explained Williams in May during a news conference.
The Wakanda queen has been in media off late after she spoke out on the frequent drug tests she was going through. She has been subjected to drug tests five tims in 2018, three times in 2017 and six times in 2016 that is more than any of her fellow female and male tennis players.
“Look at me, I was born this way. They are like, ‘Oh, she can’t be that great, she must be doing something,” said Williams about her muscular physique in an interview with TIME magazine in August 2017.
