Serena Williams wins in tutus at US Open

  • Serena Williams x 2018 US Open- Day 1

Venus, the 2000 and 2001 champion, made the third round for the 17th time with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Serena Williams set up the highly anticipated matchup at Flushing Meadows by hitting 13 aces and overwhelming 101st-ranked Carina Witthoeft of Germany, 6-2, 6-2, in a little more than an hour in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday night.

Serena, a six-time U.S. Open champion, was given a seeding boost by officials after her maternity leave.

The last time the two have played this early in a Grand Slam tournament was in 1998 at the Australian Open in their first-ever meeting on the tour.

'It propels us to continue to play that for the tournament.

Like Serena, Anne says her catsuit was more about function than fashion - explaining her outfit was meant to keep her warm in the cold weather.

"The more these incidents come out, that's a good thing", Asha Dahya, founder and editor of GirlTalkHQ, told ABC News.

"It's obviously a tough match", Serena added.

The likes of Judy Murray and Billie Jean King took to Twitter to condemn the warning, and Cornet received a huge amount of support from her fellow players. Once the players stepped back on court, Cornet realized she had worn her top backwards and quickly set about putting it straight. Venus joked Wednesday in her on-court interview that it was "two against one ... so at least this time it will be fair". "Any other questions about anything else?"

"I think when I was 5 years old, that's when I think I started liking it a lot", says Venus in the video, which is now going viral.

She faces Belarus' Victoria Azarenka next, after the former world number one beat Daria Gavrilova 6-1 6-2.

A tennis star penalised for taking her top off on court has blasted the French Tennis Federation president for banning Serena Williams' catsuit.

"What he said about Serena's catsuit was 10,000 times worse than what happened to me on the court on Tuesday, because he's the president of the French federation and because he doesn't have to do that". When I woke up this morning, I didn't think that this code violation would become so famous in less than 24 hours, and I'm very surprised about it'.
