Serena Williams Returned To The French Open To Snatch Trophies Wearing A Catsuit

If you’re anything like me, you spent your Tuesday after Memorial Day Weekend having BBQ farts and forgetting that it’s not Monday every ten minutes. But if you’re anything like Serena Williams, you a damn lie. There is nobody like Serena Williams (with the possible exception of Serena Williams’ secret clone that her internet billionaire husband is working on in a hidden bunker buried deep inside a mountain in New Mexico). And even her clone knows better than to compare herself to the GOAT. But if you are Serena Williams, you spend the Tuesday after Memorial Day winning your opening round of The French Open, a mere 8 months after almost having died giving birth. And you do it wearing a fucking fantastic catsuit.

Serena told reporters that the catsuit was a “statement piece.” According to USA Today, Serena said:

All the moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and have to come back and try to be fierce, in a middle of everything. That’s what this represents. You can’t beat a catsuit, right?

Serena’s been very open about her traumatic childbirth experience; an event that was covered in the HBO documentary series Being Serena. Tuesday’s French Open win marks the first major tournament Serena has competed in since giving birth via emergency c-section to Alexis Olympia in September. She beat Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic 7-6, 6-4.

Here’s Super Serena in action.

Of course, Serena isn’t an actual superhero. She is a mortal; flesh and bone just like the rest of us. Her superpowers are hard work, dedication, focus, and a freak lab accident involving radioactive chutzpah that made her better at playing tennis than anybody else on God’s green earth.
