Serena Williams said she felt like a “superhero” in the black catsuit she wore during the 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 win over Kristyna Pliskova at the French Open.
The temperature hit 25C in Paris but it did not seem to affect the 23-time major winner in her first Grand Slam match since giving birth last September.
Williams also said the outfit helped her cope with the issue of blood clots, which she revealed almost cost her life in February.
Following her win over Pliskova the three-time French Open singles champion will now play Australia’s Ashleigh Barty in the next round.
