But there will no more outings for the striking outfit after the French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli said in an interview with Tennis Magazine that Roland Garros, one of the four grand slams, is introducing a dress code.

It should be noted the tutu in question is a custom sport version, designed specifically for the 36-year-old by Virgil Abloh for Nike, to be worn by Williams at this year's US Open.

So after needing just 70 minutes to put together a 6-4, 6-0 victory over 68th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Williams was excited to go make amends.

However, Williams has been applauded for her classy reaction to the outfit ban. There can never be another Serena Williams!

"I think I'm getting there", Serena said after crushing the willowy Linette in the featured night match, wearing a designer motorcycle biker-like kit.

The tennis champion wore the body suit after a return to the court after maternity at the French Opens, revealing her outfit made her feel like a "warrior princess" from Wakanda - the fictional nation where the film is set.

This will be the first competitive meeting between Williams and Witthoeft.

Willams said the tutu was actually "easy to play in" and even "aerodynamic".

Regardless of what the Giudicelli says, fans took to Twitter defending Serena and showing love for the black tennis tutu.

Williams is going for her 24th Grand Slam title, her seventh at the US Open. "I work just as hard, if not harder", she said at a press conference before her U.S. Open match. By blending archival and match footage with a voiceover by Serena's father and first coach, Richard Williams, the spot highlights Serena's dream-come-true of playing center stage in New York City.

The tennis star has confirmed that she won't actually be celebrating her little one's first birthday because of her belief as a Jehovah's Witness.
