    Serena Williams Just Won Outfit Of The Year When She Competed In The Australian Open Wearing A Catsuit

    Oh, and in case the haters are wondering, Serena won in straight sets while wearing this outfit.

    You know Serena Williams — champion tennis player, winner of 23 Grand Slam titles and just an all-round queen.

    Well, like many other tennis players, Serena is currently competing in the Australian Open. But, unlike the stereotypically-dressed others, she's known for raising the bar when it comes to her outfits. Not only does she serve on the court, but her fits do as well.

    Let us never forget how Serena responded to backlash about her clothing by competing in — and winning — a match while wearing this magnificent tutu.

    So, it's no surprise that during her first round match against Laura Siegemund, Serena stepped onto the court wearing a one-legged — yes, ONE-LEGGED — catsuit.

    If I was playing against Serena and she entered the court wearing this, I would probably just call it a day, tbh.

    In a post-match interview, Serena credited Nike for the outfit, which was inspired by Florence Griffith Joyner — a sprinter known not only for her history-making athletic ability, but for her bright, colourful track outfits.
