American Serena Williams has powered her way into the third round of the Australian Open Tennis tournament in Melbourne.
Chasing her 24th Grand Slam title, Williams cruised past Nina Stojanovic of Serbia, delivering a bagel in the second set, the American won 6-3 and 6-love.
But as we have come to expect from the former world number one with her unusual and bright coloured outfits, it was her red, pink and black, one-legged leotard that has made the headlines at this year’s tournament.
The tenth seed says the last minute design has turned out to be one of her best ever outfits and joked about how light it is.
“I just felt like the design that we had before wasn’t as Serena-esque and so the Nike team went back and created something very Serena-like and didn’t have time to put it in retail. So, it was definitely more of a last minute outfit than usual. So yeah, it’s light, it’s actually, if you look up close, it’s actually breathable and it’s perforated. So it’s actually super light, and to a point where I need to make sure I’m wearing underwear. Nude colour though,” explains Williams.
