& now nobody's happy
On Friday, August 24, French Open president Bernard Guidicelli proved he was completely out of touch by banning Serena Williams from wearing her catsuit in next year’s tournament. “One must respect the game and the place,” Guidicelli said.
Williams not only wore the “Black Panther”-inspired catsuit because it looks incredible but to help prevent blood clots in her legs.
“I’ve had a lot of problems with my blood clots,” Willaims said. “God, I don’t know how many I’ve had in the past 12 months. I’ve been wearing pants in general a lot when I play, so I can keep the blood circulation going.”
Guidicelli’s comments provoked an online backlash, but Williams respected the decision. “I think that obviously, the Grand Slams have a right to do what they want to do,” she said.
