Serena Williams will wear a figure skating-inspired Nike dress at the US Open that she designed herself, made of 6 layers to honor her previous 6 titles in Flushing.
Her NikeCourt Flare 2 shoes feature a diamond-encrusted Swoosh and solid gold lace deubrés set with 400 hand-set diamonds.
In about an hour and a half, Williams will kick off her last US Open. For the final tournament of her career, Williams wanted a special outfit and Nike certainly made sure to make the American happy.
«Historically, Serena’s love of fashion and her training in fashion have led to stunning, defining looks. For her latest outfit for Flushing, Serena took control, bringing the full vision and dialing down the details for an exciting design created to make her feel comfortable and safe,” Nike said in a statement.
Williams will face Danka Kovinic
In the first round of the US Open, Williams faces Kovinic, who is ranked 80th. Kovinic has lost his last five matches and Williams will surely like his chances against Montregrin. When Williams and Kovinic meet, it will be their first meeting.
Over the weekend, Kovinic called Williams «an icon» and admitted there will definitely be pressure on her to deliver as she knows the whole world will be watching her match against Williams. “Serena is an icon.
If I wasn’t playing it on Monday, I wouldn’t get all this attention. I am aware. So it will be a very nice experience and, at the same time, perhaps a little stressful. Of course I will feel pressure.
But I will try to turn it into something positive,” Kovinic said. Williams is 1-3 since he made his singles comeback at Wimbledon. But Kovinic hasn’t played well either and Williams is considered the favorite for the match. It remains to be seen how far Williams can go in his last US Open.
