The most successful tennis champion in the world and in the history of all genres, she qualified in beauty and style for the second round of the US Open, against Danka Kovinic. She wore a Nike dress that she designed herself, heralding her conversion to fashion.

If she has already announced her farewell to the tennis courts, Serena Williams has not yet given her final racket hits or her fashionable shine. As proof, on August 29, 2022, the unrivaled champion of the discipline, all genres combined, has just qualified for the second round of the US Open. Unsurprisingly, he defeated Montenegrin Danka Kovinic (80th in the world) 6-3, 6-3. Beyond the score, her dress also marked the spirits.

The conversion of Serena Williams’ fashion, already entirely outlined?

Indeed, let’s remember itin addition to the yellow ball, Serena Williams also has a passion for fashion, who studied from 2000 to 2003 at the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale. He founded a first brand, Aneres (Serena upside down) in 2004, then a second Serena in 2018, and has always had unexpected outfits on the pitch. For more than three years, her Serena Williams Design Crew has worked with Nike, her official equipment supplier, to promote diversity and inclusion within the company, as well as offering limited edition collections.

So it’s a ready-made fashion conversion and already experienced (within a particularly lively sector, however) that is taking shape for those who are about to retire from tennis.
