That's what ran through my head as I saw the phenom that is Serena Jameka Williams walk onto the court at the U.S. Open, in a black tutu, looking like a magical girl character from Princess TuTu.
Although she will face tougher challenges, Williams looks well placed to challenge for the record-equalling 24th Grand Slam on the evidence of her victory over Linette. I think I'm getting there. It seems we are never skinny enough, tall enough, nice enough, strong enough, amusing enough, sexy enough, pretty enough, classy enough, quiet enough... UGH! At just 11 months old, she is already a social media star with over 4 lakh followers on her verified Instagram account.
It was the 12th time Halep has lost in the opening round of a slam, and she said: 'I never play my best tennis here, even if I did quarter-finals, semi-finals.
Williams, who emerged from her first round of the US Open victorious, made headlines for her on-court fashion just days earlier after French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli told Tennis Magazine that the catsuit that Williams wore to the tournament this year will "no longer be accepted...one must respect the game and the place".
Another said: "They didn't let Serena Williams wear her catsuit". Once I got settled, I started doing what I'm trying to do in practice, so it helped a lot.
The new ruling sparked an outcry among Williams' fans, but the champ herself, who suffered life-threatening blood clots after giving birth to daughter Olympia previous year, took it in stride.
In response to the decision, Williams said: "I feel like if and when they know that some things are for health reasons, then there's no way that they wouldn't be OK with it". Ok, I'll go with a tutu and fishnets then.
