French Open bosses ban Serena Williams’ skin-tight outfit insisting she has to respect the game



* French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli says next year’s French Open at Roland Garros tournament will toughen up its dress code.

* He says there will be prohibiting of  form-fitting catsuits such as those Serena Williams donned this year.

President of the French Tennis Federation, Bernard Guidicelli has disclosed that there would be a total ban of catsuits like the one Serena Williams donned this year at the next year's Open in Roland Garros tournament.

In an interview with Tennis Magazine, Giudicelli emphasized that eye-catching, figure-hugging outfits will no longer be allowed at the second Grand Slam tournament of the year.

“I believe we have sometimes gone too far,” he said. “Serena’s outfit this year, for example, would no longer be accepted. You have to respect the game and the place.”

This year the 23-time Grand Slam winner wore a Nike-designed full-length black suit which was aimed to prevent blood clots, a major health issue which Williams suffered from after giving birth to her daughter last autumn.

The 36-year-old player also confessed that the black catsuit made her feel like a warrior princess from Black Panther, a movie which was released in February. Williams was named the highest-paid female athlete by Forbes in its annual report on Tuesday. The US tennis star earned just $62,000 in prize money between June 2017 and June 2018, but added a whopping $18.1 million through endorsements.
