"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".

"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess, a queen from Wakanda maybe", said Williams of the catsuit when she wore it, referencing the fictional nation in sub-Saharan Africa, which is home to superhero Black Panther from Marvel Comics.

"When I first tried on the dress, I felt very strong and feminine at the same time".

But not Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

But then Serena being the boldest and sassiest in all terms, literally turned heads when she entered the court wearing a one-shoulder outfit which literally set the NY tongues wagging. But she has endured a hard start to life on the professional Tour and arrived at the US Open without a win at Tour-level since the French Open.

Oh, and by the way, yes she won her match on Monday: 6-4, 6-0. The outfit was also created to prevent blood clots, an issue that caused her serious problems after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia on September 1, 2017.

Serena Williams of the United States of America celebrates a victor against Magda Linette of Poland in a first round match on day one of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Health benefits aside, Williams said the outfit made her feel like a "Warrior Princess" on the court.

It seems that nearly wherever Serena Williams goes, her fashion statements tend to dominate the headlines.

The 68th-ranked Linette held her own in the early going, but Williams gained the only break she needed in the first set in the seventh game and rolled from there.

"It's easy to play in", Williams said in a news conference afterwards.

Williams holds a 13-5 record this year, including reaching the Wimbledon final.

"The first set was tight, it was my first match back here in NY so it wasn't the easiest".

Serena, 36, was raised a Jehovah's Witness but she admits she has "never really practised it".

"I think I'm getting there - I've been feeling great in practice".
