While fans and the media praised the catsuit look, French Tennis Federation (FTF) president Bernard Giudicelli said in a Tennis Magazine interview published last week that it won't be back.

"With Serena, we have one of our generation's most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse", Abloh said in a statement from the brand, "I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis".

23-time Major champion Serena Williams will continue her quest for a seventh US Open title when she takes on Carina Witthoeft of Germany.

Williams, 36, who makes her return to the US Open on Monday for the first time since having daughter Olympia, had her own harrowing adventure that is flying with babies.

The tutu dress came specially designed by Virgil Abloh, the founder of Off-White and current artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear, bringing a high fashion twist to the court.

Ahmadinejad has taken note of the controversy and chose to tweet his support for Serena Williams. In an Instagram post, the mum of one, who almost died in giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia, dedicated it to "all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy".

White House lowers flag for McCain again after backlash
Our words are too often cheap and imminently forgettable but John McCain paid our freight with his body and with his soul. Earlier Monday, a statement written by McCain before his death read like a not-so-veiled criticism of the president.

"But I'm happy to get through the match".

The tennis champion has sent a message that she will not let a dress code dictate what she wears on the court.

"It's different because it's a much further ride away, obviously, " Williams said, referring to the shorter commutes at other Grand Slam events.

There's no risk of that happening at this week's U.S Open in NY, where she's dressing to impress. I can not say much about this match, just that I didn't really feel the ball. She also revealed, amid the controversy, that she felt it empowered her as she headed into a match.

Voicing her displeasure, Hill began, "Well the unfortunate part of all this is that Serena doesn't even get the space to be angry".
