Even though Wimbledon limits some creativity with the traditional all-white rule, everyone is still eager to see what Serena Williams will wear. The 23-time Grand Slam champion didn't disappoint in a cut-out Nike dress, complete with a "broosh".
“I also wanted her to feel like it was something her grandmother could have worn, but of course give it a modern spin and make it just right for Serena," said NikeCourt Global Design Director Abby Swancutt, who picked up inspiration from previous generations.
The 37-year-old walked on Center Court on Tuesday in a long see-through cover up jacket.
She needed to fight to close it out, but eventually got past qualifier Giulia Gatto-Monticone 6-2, 7-5.
