23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams will be banned from wearing her fancy black catsuit at the French Open in the future.
The tournament set to introduce a stricter dress code starting from next year’s showcase.
At this year’s Roland Garros, the American star and former World number one said the outfit made her feel like a “superhero” before adding that it helped with the issue of blood clots which nearly “cost her her life giving birth.”
“It will no longer be accepted,” French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli told Tennis magazine.
“I believe we have sometimes gone too far. You have to respect the game and the place.
According to Williams, the decision is “not a big deal” after speaking to Giudicelli on Friday.
“The Grand Slams have the right to do what they want to do. If they know that some things are for health reasons then there’s no way that they wouldn’t be OK with it,” Williams, a three-time Roland Garros champion said.
