Serena Williams competed in the French Open in her “Wakanda-inspired catsuit,” which many are applauding.
Sports Illustrated reports that the outfit was designed before the movie came out, but Williams still used Black Panther as a superhero reference.
Williams says that she feels ”like a warrior princess, kind of” in the outfit.
Williams’ last competition was 16 months ago. Competing in the French Open marks her return to tennis after giving birth on Sept. 1.
Serena: “It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and believe in themselves.”https://t.co/Zdu86p73mk
