Williams stunned in her opening round win over Czech Kristyna Pliskova by wearing a black catsuit. Cilic, a former US Open champion who has reached two of the past three Grand Slam finals, was not bothered by the rain that stopped play for about an hour and won, 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (7-4). "I think people have to talk about it more because it's nearly like the fourth trimester, it's part of the pregnancy", she said. "[The suit] definitely has little functionality to it". "So it's a fun suit but it's also functional, so I can be able to play without any problems".
There is also a symbolism about it, too. "And one of her best assets is that when her back is against the wall, the best comes out".
"When you realize you have to fly back to SF for @initialized business tomorrow and you'll miss watching @serenawilliams & @venuswilliams win their 1st doubles match of #RG18", he captioned a photo of himself looking unhappy from the stands at another match.
"I call it like my Wakanda-inspired catsuit". I'm always living in a fantasy world. Then came the second-round match against Ashleigh Barty.
"And obviously I want to talk to her about Serena because I think - I told her already a couple of things, but I think she has a good chance".
Williams then took another break to work on her game, and that absence of more than two months ended Tuesday.
"It's been a few years now".
As Barty said, "I think when push came to shove, the real Serena came out". I think it's a tough decision. I really try to put her first in my life, along with, God and my family.More news: No evidence of ‘spy’ in Trump camp, Democrats say after intel brief

The Russian, who was Paris champion in 2012 and 2014, fired 35 winners in her victory on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
"But now, she's the reason why this all means even more than it did before", Williams said.
But Williams was moving far better now, hugging the baseline and refusing to allow Barty to dictate the rallies.
In the end, Williams had to have a filter inserted into a major vein to prevent any possible clots from entering her lungs, and was forced to go on bed rest for the next six weeks.
"So it will be a really good, another good show for me". Like she said, her muscles and strength are what made her so great at what she does: winning. I know that the WTA are going through all the right processes.
The 36-year-old American, who became a mother on September 1, grabbed four consecutive games over a span of less than 15 minutes to lead 4-1 in the second set, which soon enough would be hers.
"The customer is a girl or a woman who believes in herself, or wants to believe in herself; maybe she's feeling unconfident that day", she told Women's Wear Daily ahead of the launch.
