The 23-time Grand Slam champion has made a commanding comeback to the sport following a nearly 14-month hiatus, and she’s only one step away from earning her next major title when she faces Germany’s Angelique Kerber in tomorrow’s women’s finals.
While she’s best known for her technical prowess, Williams is also recognized for her powerful, statement-making ensembles on the court.
Stepping onto the field at the All England Club, she’s grabbed headlines in her head-to-toe white Nike outfit and compression legwear — a pair of skin-colored tights that offer wellness benefits such as increased circulation.
(The 36-year-old athlete suffered post-birth complications due to a blood clot, and compression hosiery is often recommended for pregnant women.)
Before withdrawing from the French Open due to a pectoral muscle injury, Williams also dominated the clay court in a Wakanda-inspired catsuit from Nike. The full-length number was swiftly referred to among her fans as a symbol of strength and determination — and the new mother agreed.
“I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of, [a] queen from Wakanda,” she said, referencing the fictional setting of 2018 Marvel film “Black Panther.” “I’m always living in a fantasy world. I always wanted to be a superhero, and it’s kind of my way of being a superhero. I feel like a superhero when I wear it.”
And, of course, one cannot forget Williams’ appearance at the 2017 Australian Open — in an graphic black and white dress that will continue to be associated with her incredible win while eight weeks pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Truly, there is nothing she can’t do.
