Serena Williams says she’s “fine” with the French Open banning her skin-tight black catsuit but left open the door that she could wear it again in the future.
“I think that obviously the Grand Slams have a right to do what they want to do,” Williams said Saturday ahead of the start of the US Open on Monday. “I feel like if and when, or if they know that some things are for health reasons, then there’s no way that they wouldn’t be okay with it. So I think it’s fine.”
Asked if she would consider skipping the event in the future, Williams said it wouldn’t happen.
“The president of the French Federation, he’s been really amazing,” she said. “He’s been so easy to talk to. My whole team is basically French, so we have a wonderful relationship. I’m sure we would come to an understanding and everything will be okay. So it wouldn’t be a big deal. He’s a really great guy.”
