Serena Did It For The Moms And Tore Down The French Open In A Catsuit

Serena Williams has been destroying opponents for over two decades now, always doing it in style. Yesterday she took it to another level by not only defeating Kristyna Pliskova in the opening round of the French Open, but doing it in a black catsuit which she wore with a special message for Moms.

Catsuit anyone? For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy-here you go. If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!!

“I feel like a warrior wearing it, a queen from Wakanda maybe,” said Serena in an interview with BBC Sports.

Williams continues to inspire for her accomplishments and what she represents, but now, as a new Mother, Serena is letting all of the Moms out there know that they are not alone during their pregnancies.

You can’t beat a catsuit, right?” @SerenaWilliams talks to @Jon_Wertheim after her 1st round win. #RG18 #Catsuit

Serena said the catsuit is for “All the Moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and had to come back and try to be fierce.”

“I had a lot of problems with those [blood clots]I don’t know how many I have had in the past 12 months,” Williams told BBC. “It definitely has little functionality to it. It’s a fun suit, but it’s also functional so I’m able to play without any problems.”

The biggest problem she’s facing now is spending more time with her daughter.

“I’m semi on time today. It’s because I want to get home to see Olympia, because I have been here all day.”

We pity the opponents who try to interfere with her Mommy-daughter time.
