A day after causing a stir with her catsuit at the French Open, Serena Williams has launched a new fashion line she describes as “strong, sexy, sophisticated and sassy”.
Williams announced on her website that she’s launching her first independent clothing line “for all the ladies out there being awesome”.
The winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles won her opening match at Roland Garros on Tuesday, playing in her first major championship since giving birth to a baby girl in September.
The tennis player and mum’s first independent clothing line is “for all the ladies out there being awesome”.

She wore a black Nike bodysuit on court, much to the delight of fans on Twitter. She later explained the choice was aimed at making a statement.
“All the moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and have to come back and try to be fierce, in a middle of everything. That’s what this represents,” she said in an interview with journalist Jon Wertheim. “You can’t beat a catsuit, right?”
Williams has long been working in the fashion industry and has been a staple at New York’s Fashion Week, launching Aneres (her name spelled backwards) in 2004, before collaborating with HSN for another line in 2009.
Her latest fashion endeavour, called S, features casual crop tops, joggers and dresses priced from $US40 to $US205 (N$58 to $294).
