Tennis superstar Serena Williams won her 1st grand slam tennis match since giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian in September.

The 36-year-old mom-of-one defeated Czech Republic's Kristyna Pliskova, 7-6, 6-4 in style, wearing a black compression bodystocking to prevent blood clots and to conceal unsightly cellulite.

After the match, Serena said she wore the bodysuit to honor moms everywhere. She also sent a message to young women that covering your assets can be sexy.

Serena experienced complications following the high-risk birth of her first child. She suffered from blood clots and her heart rate dropped after delivering her baby via C-section.

    And she looks good in it. I need Nike to give her an athletic clothing line and some tennis shoes.


    Alrighty congrats to her.
    I don’t know about the catsuit or her clothing choices but happy she is doing what she loves.

  • what?why

    Isn't she hot, as in sweating?

  • Mischelle

    Serena gave the brothers a chance but that Venus, I don't think she's ever dated a black guy.

  • missmiami305

    The more u sweat the more calories burned

  • missmiami305

    I don’t. She got tired and said fugg it I wanna be happy. Now she is. She married someone that loves her and wanted to wife her. He saw her for the gem that she is.

    Wow...“to conceal unsightly cellulite”, wtf has Serena done to stay in your petty boots when it comes to her?????

  • Roderick2011

    I wonder if Serena can bodypress her husband

  • TMW

    She has an endorsement deal with Nike. I don’t know if she sells those outfits, but she designs the tennis outfits that she wears, so she probably designed this too. I like it...just looks HOT!

    Serena looks good! I love the braids and her outfit.

  • Allihave2say

    Marriage is looking good on Serena. Her game has always been A+ but she is really evolving in her presentation. I like the braids on her, they look a little tight and she needs to protect her edges but she looks good. Wigs are not for Serena.

    You know something folks? I'm buying (and seeing) more jumpsuits and overalls. Really nice ones. I was in Target and I got a blue jumpsuit and I must say it was very flattering. I love jumpsuits (not tight suits like Serena, who by the way designs for Nike). I love overalls. Now I can't fit into those tight clothes like Serena, I like comfort.
    Check out these styles.
    ^^I want something like that for evening.
    These are really cute:

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    She designs for Nike.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She looks great!

  • Oya Shango

  • ImWoke

  • Thingamajig

  • Shawty

    She has a special on HBO. It was very insightful. She is a sweetheart and a very good athlete. Her work ethic is nothing short of amazing. I guess that's why she is a SUPERSTAR!

  • Minkie Babie

    Yes. Black women hate each other so much as well as white women hating on us too. Cause I'm convince a white woman runs this blog now. Serena up there breaking every damn record not only in tennis but other sports and the white lady who wrote this talking about cellulite. Have several seats h0

  • 90’sBawdy

    serenawilliams They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves--tennis and fashion--and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me "no," it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream.

    Today, I am proud to launch @serena, my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you're worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard
