Con­verse un­der her ball­gown for the royal wed­ding evening do, Ser­ena Wil­liams made a tri­umphant re­turn to tennis at the French Open, nine months af­ter the birth of her daugh­ter. Known for shun­ning the stan­dard-is­sue tennis dress, this time she re­ally showed us how to stage a come­back with style (and util­ity), in a Nike cat­suit which broke the at­tire rules with its dark block colour and lack of skirt ( god for­bid). But the 36-year-old main­tained her right to sup­port her body and pro­tect it from the blood clots that threat­ened her life dur­ing child­birth. ‘ This suit rep­re­sents all the women who’ve been through a lot men­tally, phys­i­cally, with their body to come back and have con­fi­dence and be­lieve in them­selves,’ she said, af­ter trounc­ing her op­po­nent. ‘I call it my Wakanda-in­spired cat­suit [ref­er­enc­ing the fic­tional na­tion at the heart of Mar­vel block­buster, Black Pan­ther]. ]. It’s my way of be­ing a su­per­hero.’ We all knew she was one any­way.

She’s back! Su­per Ser­ena storms straight into Grand Slam tennis from ma­ter­nity leave
