"I think sometimes we've gone too far". I thought after having a child I would be more relaxed.

Shouldn't the focus be on the incredible talent that she i and not what she wears. if only men in sport faced the same bullshit. 'Women are strong and we are continuing to be, so I'm really proud of that'.

The former world number one made an eye-catching return to the Grand Slam scene at Roland Garros in May after giving birth to her daughter in September 2017.

As someone who has had blood clots a couple of times, it is standard for Williams to still takes blood thinners.

The three-time victor 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.

"I lost in the first round, so it can not be worse than that", Halep said, recalling her opening-round loss to Maria Sharapova in 2017.

She also said she spoke with Giudicelli on Friday after the announcement. "I feel like it will for sure pay off eventually". I've been working incredibly hard.

Besides allowing Williams to feel like a queen from Black Panther's fictional Wakanda, she said the fitted suit was created to protect her against blood clots.

The 23-time grand slam champion said the catsuit was "fun" but "functional".

"Records are meant to be broken".

Williams, always ahead of the game, says this wouldn't have even been an issue anytime soon because "when it comes to fashion, you don't want to be a repeat offender".

"If I can do it, so can you", she wrote in an Instagram caption. "So it is definitely a little functionality to it", Williams said.

Williams, seeded 17th for the US Open next week, has however played down on what some had thought would snowball into another basket of controversy.

Even if Williams did not feel the need to wear the outfit any longer, the French Open isn't scoring PR points by singling out a three-time victor of the tournament, fan favorite and G.O.A.T. all in one.

"It doesn't matter to me", Williams said of her favorite's status. "I can just continue to strive".
