Wonder Woman of the Week: Serena Williams for her talent and power


This week, we’re celebrating Serena Wiliams for her talent, power, and standing up for herself in the most stylish way.

If you’ve been on Twitter at all this week, or any social media really, you’ve likely heard about what happened with Serena Williams at the French Open. The president of the French Open, Bernard Guidicelli, decided he didn’t like the black catsuit that Serena wore during a match.

He told Tennis Magazine that he was going to ban her from wearing the outfit, saying “Serena’s outfit this year, for example, would no longer be accepted. You have to respect the game and the place.”

People on the internet were confused as to why this outfit was disrespectful. The outfit was functional and perfectly acceptable sports attire. Williams went on to say that she wore the outfit because it helped with blood clots she had faced after giving birth.

The stance Guidicelli took was ridiculous, and unjustifiable. But, in true all-star fashion. Serena Williams went out there to her matches at the U.S. Open and took the story back into her own hands.

In both matches she has had at the U.S. Open, she has worn tutus while playing. The first tutu was black, and the second one was a lavender ensemble designed by Virgil Abloh. People all over the internet loved her response as it shows that she is still here to play the game and that she isn’t going to let people determine her wardrobe choices.

But, more than that, we want to honor Williams for her skill on the tennis court. She won her match against German Carina Witthoeft at the U.S. open on Wednesday and will now be playing her younger sister Venus.

Talking about the match against Witthoeft, she said, “’It’s always such a great crowd at night. It’s just amazing to play in front of this crowd. I was happy with a lot of things.”

We absolutely love that Williams won that match while wearing the tutu. While we love both of the Williams’ sisters, we kind of hope Serena gets the win this time given the pushback she’s faced this week.
