We're glad that Williams feels confident that she and Giudicelli will agree upon her outfits for the French Open.

Serena Williams is arguably the greatest tennis player of all time, man or woman-just ask 20-time Grand Slam victor Roger Federer.

"It's not an easy match when you are playing a former U.S. Open champion in the first round", Williams said.

As for No. 26-ranked Williams, she dismissed the catsuit controversy altogether in a news conference Saturday, saying she has a great relationship with Giudicelli. "Hi Queen Flo Jo".

However, in a recent interview, French Tennis Federation (FTF) president Bernard Giudicelli announced that in the future, such outfits will no longer be allowed at Roland Garros, claiming that they will "no longer be accepted", and that players "must respect the game and the place".

The tweet has gone viral with over 2 thousand retweets and six thousand likes at the time of writing.

"Definitely my dream came true", she told reporters on Friday ahead of next week's US Open, where she is top seed.

Even if you don't care much about tennis, you may have heard about Serena Williams turning heads at the French Open in May with her black full-body "catsuit".

It also mixes in some highlights from her many appearances at Flushing Meadows, overlaid with Richard's words of wisdom such as "take the net, put it away, Just like you want to win, Just like you're at the US Open".

His voiceover continues as the footage cuts back-and-forth to an older version of the tennis icon competing at the U.S. Open over the years.

When Williams returned to tennis this year after giving birth, she wore a sleek black catsuit to help her circulation and avoid blood clots - something she has struggled with, and almost died of, since giving birth last September.

"The idea with the dress code will be much more flexible than the one at Wimbledon, which has hardened over time", he said.

She once revealed: "I have been wearing trousers in general a lot when I play, so I can keep the blood circulation going. So it is definitely a little functionality to it", Williams said at the time of the tournament.

Serena Williams made a triumphant return to the US Open on Monday, opening her bid for a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title with a 6-4, 6-0 first-round victory over Magda Linette.
