Serena Williams Kills The US Open In A Tutu After Catsuit Ban

Azarenka described the situation as ‘unacceptable

Ex-pro tennis player Anne White says she knows howSerena Williams feels about the ban on her catsuit at the French Open. because she went through the exact same thing back in the '80s.

Serena, the No. 17 seed, ensured Friday's headliner by making quick work of Carina Witthoeft 6-2, 6-2 under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Like Serena, Anne says her catsuit was more about function than fashion - explaining her outfit was meant to keep her warm in the cold weather.

After an even start to the second set Serena found an extra gear to win three games on the spin, including two further breaks of serve, to thrill the NY crowd and book an expected night session match-up with Venus, seeded 16th, on Friday.

John McCain rival claims pre-death announcement was a political ploy
Hume is pointing out that, even in the Senator's death, Trump can't bring himself to say "a kind word" for the man. The McCain-Trump relationship grew heated in 2015 when McCain said Trump's candidacy had "fired up the crazies".

The decision was branded sexist given male players regularly change shirts on court, and US Open organisers responded with a statement on Wednesday admitting Cornet should not have received any sanction.

"As always we will come out and try our best".

"Everything's fine, guys", she said.

"I just kind of had to weather the storm and wait for my opportunities".

This will be only the second time the Williams sisters have met in the first week of a major. "She was playing really well, she'd played four matches already, she was used to the conditions". She took off the shirt and put it back on correctly while standing near the back of the court and was given a code violation by the chair umpire. "I think overwhelmingly you're seeing that women who are sports fans want that agency to be returned to women athletes". When I woke up this morning, I didn't think that this code violation would become so famous in less than 24 hours, and I'm very surprised about it'.
