Serena Responds to French Tennis Federation Controversial Rule Change

A few days ago news broke that French Tennis Federation President, Bernard Giudicelli, announced some changes were going to be put in place concerning the dress code at the French Open next year. The “changes” would prevent Serena from wearing her Wakandan themed black catsuit which was created by Nike to help her out with her blood clots when she played on the court.

According to Giudicelli the reasoning for his new rule change, “One must respect the game and the place.”

So here’s the piping hot question we want to know. What about Serena’s outfit deems it unsuitable and disrespectful to the game itself? And how does it take it to far? This seems like a classic case of misogynoir against Serena.

Serena’s already dealt with criticism from those who commented on her muscular appearance comparing her to a man sometimes. Not to mention how historically black woman are sexualized more because of their naturally curvy figure seen as exotic.

Another article was released a month ago that reported that Serena Williams was being tested for enhancement drugs more than her other tennis counterparts both male and female.

Serena was always the type of person to play the part and be diplomatic. She even said that she had a great relationship with the Giudicelli himself.

In a recent interview with Tennis.com Serena commented on how she felt about the new dress code policy that would prevent her from wearing her catsuit in future French Open tournaments. She said, ” When it comes to fashion, you don’t want to be a repeat offender….I think that obviously the Grand Slams have a right to do what they want to do.”

Twitter went ablaze on Friday when the story first broke when it was announced Giudicelli would set in the place the new dress code policy to police what the athletes were allowed to wear.

 

Billie Jean King commented on the decision stating that “the policing of women’s bodies must end”. 

Even Nike commented on the discussion that was made to ban the catsuit.

Serena said that her specially made bodysuit made her feel like a superhero but thankfully she doesn’t have to wear it anymore to help her out with her blood clots. She’s definitely not fazed by this fashion rule and is currently playing in the U.S. Open.

She has recently won her first match against Magda Linette and is set to play against CarinaWitthöft for her next match. 

However, this does create a conversation surrounding the policing of women’s bodies in a world dominated by patriarchy but that’s for another time.

Prince William Meghan Markle Catherine Middleton Prince Harry

After months of using Meghan Markle as the perfect scapegoat for tension between the royals, reports of Prince William’s infidelity have surfaced. According to multiple news outlets, the expected king has allegedly cheated with Catherine Middleton’s best friend, Rose Hanbury.

Surely his father’s son, Prince William has brought shame upon the royal family for repeating the lecherous mistake of an extramarital affair. But his indiscretions carry a twist. Instead of carrying the shame as Prince Charles did, William shifted blame onto Meghan, concocting the many negative stories that plagued media outlets himself. With this knowledge, it is now apparent why there is such distance between the sons of Princess Diana.

The marriage of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been on the rocks for quite some time. But things have recently come to a head in recent months as the couple dissolved their friendship with Rose Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage — aka the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley. pronounced “Chumley”.

When rumors of an affair between William and Rose began circulating, Catherine immediately confronted him as the tryst took place during her third pregnancy. To quell the oncoming storm , Prince William contacted his lawyer, urging him to suppress any information that could hit U.K outlets and threatening offensive publications with legal action. In addition, media outlets that cover the royals’ goings-on began to heavily deride Meghan Markle, fueling rumors she was difficult or causing Kate’s disappointment. While news of his affair has been spreading for several weeks, it’s validity remained questioned until April 24th. Catherine Middleton returned to London last night with only her 3 children and the royal family is refusing to comment on the matter.

Bun B

When Bernard “Bun B” Freeman said “I got 20/10 vision and my trigger finger steady,” DeMonte Jackson was not listening! The iconic Houston rapper shot the armed intruder who entered his home Tuesday night.

According to the police report, DeMonte Jackson’s attempted robbery began when he approached Bun B’s southwest Houston home and rang the doorbell. Anticipating a delivery from Amazon, Bun B’s wife, Queenie, opened the door without looking to see who was on the other side and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun. Wearing a ski mask and pointing the weapon at Queenie, Jackson forced entry into the home while shouting demands.

Hearing the disturbance, Bun B quickly armed himself and made his way downstairs. Upon seeing the intruder holding his wife hostage, Bun B tried negotiating with Jackson. Fearful for her safety, he told the intruder to take their vehicle from the garage. With Queenie out of harm’s way, Bun B led Jackson to the car, where he confronted him. Exchanging gunfire in the garage, Bun B shot the intruder in the shoulder. However, Jackson escaped. Running away from the property, he laid low before seeking care at a hospital where he would later be apprehended.

DeMonte Jackson was charged with one count of burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery. Neither Queenie or Bun B sustained physical injuries.
