Serena Williams: French Open bans ‘superhero’ catsuit from next year

Serena Williams will be banned from wearing her black catsuit at the French Open in the future, with the tournament set to introduce a stricter dress code. The 23-time Grand Slam champion said the outfit made her feel like a “superhero” at Roland Garros this year. She claimed it helped her cope with the issue of blood clots, which she said almost cost her her life giving birth. Williams, 36, made her return to Grand Slam tennis at the French Open in May following the birth of her daughter last September. The three-time winner wore the catsuit in each of the first three rounds but had to pull out of her fourth-round tie against Maria Sharapova because of injury.
