As she prepares to play the final tournament of her illustrious career, Nike has previewed tennis star Serena Williams’ look for the US Open, a fitting tribute to her previous six Grand Slam victories.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion who we expected to retire after the US Open and her potential swan song could happen Monday night when she takes on Danka Kovinic on Arthur Ashe on day one of the tournament.
Williams is known for her bold fashion statements on the court in Flushing Meadow, from the denim miniskirt at the US Open in 2004 to her black Nike catsuit at Roland Garros in 2018.
And her potential New York final will be no different, as Nike has unveiled the latest look for the 40-year-old.
Designed months ago based on insights from Williams, she will appear in court in an all-black outfit inspired by figure skating competition wear and a six-layer skirt, which references Serena’s six previous Flushing titles, which began in 1999.
The elegant silhouette is designed to give Williams comfort and freedom of movement, while the bold embellishments will put her firmly in the spotlight – if she wasn’t already on the Arthur Ashe stage.
