    This is Serena Williams — the world's best tennis player —and mother to Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. And this is the amazing outfit she recently wore to the 2018 French Open. It was literally made special for her from Nike to help prevent any further blood-clot issues.

    Recently, the president of the French Tennis Association announced that the French Open will be enforcing a dress code from now on. He specifically singled out Williams' bodysuit, explaining, “I think that sometimes we’ve gone too far," and that it "will no longer be accepted," according to the Associated Press.

    All this, of course, is utterly ridiculous, because Williams clearly proves it does not matter what you wear on the court when you're kicking major tennis ass.
