    Her slamming body and curves in all the right places was to much for jealous pink pig skins, so they made up a dress code. Wow man theses pink pig skins clam to be the standard of beauty why dose a outfit ruffle so many feathers. Oh we all know why Serena looks to hot and they just cant have that lol!

    Always using the race card. Shut up about the race card, they banned it because it did not follow the dress code.

    She actually violated the dress code at Wimbledon wearing that suit. You’re supposed to wear white, not black. It is said that she had to wear an under garment to make her blood flow from the clots but aren’t there white under garments? Why black? Women in the past have wore a catsuit at Wimbledon, but the suit was white. I’m a guy and I don’t really know too much about women under garments but I’m sure there are white under garments that she could’ve worn.
    Half of me thinks she’s completely lying because of how she responded in her twitter post of “Everything’s fine, guys”, if she were to really have blood clots I’m sure she would’ve defended herself a lot more. I believe she just wanted to wear it for the fashion. She said the suit reminded her of Black panther “though it was created long before the movie” and “she always wanted to be a super hero.” I don’t have a problem with that, but that fact that she wore it to a tennis match where EVERYONE HAS TO DRESS IN PROPER ATTIRE INCLUDING THE AUDIENCE, is absolutely ridiculous.

    If it’s compression there are a number of ways to compress without having to see the lard cellulite behemoth thru the clothes. There’s nothing racial derived it just overly exposing camel toe, unflattering. Just play by their rules in their house

    This the same nonsense as police tell you to put your hands up and you refuse and get shot to taze.. she is asked to follow and the rule of the traditional game TILL THEY CHANGE IT... but you do not get the chance to change it..... why is there this need to challenge everything by doing something silly but not thru proper channel or at the right time? What is up with their way of thinking with black people or are this just a small bunch of idiots and think because their forefathers were slave... they should be given free passes to all kinds of shit from now till the world ends?>

    That white chick sounds like a I'm gonna agree with her so I can be cool and not look like a racist white girl. For real? Stay in your lane. And don't try so hard to keep your job.

    If she is not happy with their statements on dress code, she shouldn't be there. Simple as that. Every societies have their rules and we are supposed to followed rules. If one goes to a wedding they have to dress approperiate ways and same to visiting Buddhist temples, dress with respects. Personally the way she dressed is quite offensive and horrible to look at. I could easily through up. Is not respecting others American things ? Do it in your own soil but not at other countries. That's very bullying attitude of you are trying to correct other countries rules. Serena should have been wait until her physical condition to be in shaped rather than going around accusing that she has right but not the others. It's really a pathetic attitude. No wonder why she is behaving such bad it is simply all those media, by praising how great She is and she can do whatever she wants, made her so arrogant. Being humble human being is the prioty goal for any single humen beings not winning many titles. That's why everybody love Osaka, her being humble, graceful and modest even if she is greater than Serena.

    Serena is her own self, not following the steps of anyone else! It comes with a price, whether right or wrong. Your loved when you win , hated when you lose.

    She is fat. After tennis she will become obese. Not attractive at all.

    That space suit was simply DISGUSTING! Typically in american fashion, blaming any & everything else does not go down well. Go wallow in your sexism, racism & any other shite your sjw's impart on you.

  • Nancy Diehl

    Let’s get it straight, to give benefit from “blood clot” prevention or what we call DVT prophylaxis you would need at least 35-40mmhg of pressure exerted-if that cat suit exerted that much pressure trust me it would take a good 15-20min to get on and it would not be that loose-that’s a poor excuse for wearing it. Just be honest.

    She’s an amazing athlete. This isn’t personal. Respecting the rules means following them. There has always been a dress code in tennis and she’s trying to make her own. You open that door and anything goes. Anything goes as it is in society so let’s have some consistency in tennis, please.
