The suit that was design day NIKE for Serena Williams health issue is no longer allowed in the French Open.
She was wearing the cat suit for her blood clots, according to Serena
“Yeah, the catsuit, I had a lot of problems with my blood clots, and, God, I don’t know how many I have had in the past 12 months. So it is definitely a little functionality to it. I have been wearing pants in general a lot when I play so I can keep, you know, the blood circulation going.”
The catsuit, was singled out in an interview with the French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli.
“Sometimes we’ve gone too far,” he said when discussing the upcoming dress code changes being implemented at the French Open.
“Serena’s outfit this year, for example, would no longer be accepted,” he said. “You have to respect the game and the place.”
SMH, if you ask me this is definitely targeting her unfairly. It’ll be nice to see how she reponds to this.
