According to reports, whistles and whispered talks filled the stands at the French Open’s Court Suzanne Lenglen on Sunday. It wasn’t about Venus Williams’ fierce and quick win, but about her uniform. Venus wore a black and red lacy outfit whose skin-tone lining gives a see-through look. Her small skirt easily flew up and down revealing her skin-matching undies. The Williams sisters are no strangers to racy looks on the court but is this look too sexy? One report claimed Venus looked like she was ”ready to perform in a 19th century Parisian cancan chorus line.” The dress seemingly overshadows her win at the prestigious court with a first-round 6-3, 6-3 victory over Switzerland’s star player Patty Schnyder. When asked about her look, the winning Williams sister says it’s about illusion. “It’s a lot of my motif this year” explaining her on-court original designs. Venus says she may never wear this dress on court again, but then again, she says she might.
