One person posted on social media: "Serena Williams was told she wasn't allowed to wear her Black Panther catsuit back to the French Open because she had to "respect the game".
The tutu look comes on the heels of comments from Bernard Giudicelli, the president of the French Tennis Federation, that the French Open would ban catsuits after Williams wore one during the 2018 tournament.
Williams held court Monday night in a statement-making, one-shouldered dress that celebrates her love of dance and ballet with a tiered, tulle skirt that creates a tutu effect.
The 36-year-old downed 68th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland 6-4 6-0 in her first home slam since becoming a mother.
"I love playing here in NY, I have always loved it", she said.
"I thought it was a great first round match. I've been feeling really good in practice".
The new ruling sparked an outcry among Williams' fans, but the champ herself, who suffered life-threatening blood clots after giving birth to daughter Olympia previous year, took it in stride. After noting that she wears tight designs to prevent the blood clots she's been experiencing after giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian previous year; she said they would "come to an understanding".
Willams said the tutu was actually "easy to play in" and even "aerodynamic".
"Because [men] gotta stop policing us and our bodies, you know women are taught to be ideal and boys are taught to be courageous and it's ridiculous", she told ET at the event.
She didn't face a break point in the 70 minute match, but as her momentum built her emotions burst out with fist-clenched shouts of "come on".
Williams discussed her US Open dress with Vogue last month, and explained that her newest outfit choice made her feel "very strong and feminine".
This is a big milestone, but it turns out that Serena Williams is not celebrating baby Olympia's first birthday. "They said. 'You may strip her from her superwoman suit but you can not strip her of her superpowers, ' and that is absolutely the truth".
