The 37-year-old mother of one flashed a peek of her bottom while posing in a revealing cape gown.
Speaking to the publication Harper’s Bazaar, Serena discussed last year’s controversial match at the US Open in September 2018 against Naomi Osaka. She noted that she believes she was penalised as a woman, called the umpire a thief for taking a game away from her.
Serena Williams has revealed that she ‘started seeing a therapist’ after her outburst at the umpire during her US Open final match against Noami Osaka last year in order to find some ‘answers’ about how to deal with the aftermath of the controversial incident.
The 37-year-old made headlines in September 2018 when competing for her 24th Grand Slam singles title against Naomi, 21. During the match, Serena received three violations from the umpire after she attempted to defend herself when he penalized her for signaling to her coach — something the tennis player said she wasn’t doing.
In a personal essay with Harper’s Bazaar, Serena wrote about her perspective from that day and why she prioritized apologizing to Naomi after the backlash that followed the match, while confessing that the whole ‘debacle’ left her feeling unable to return to tennis for ‘a long while’.
‘I could not have been happier for her,’ Serena, who has one a total of 39 Grand Slams, wrote. ‘As for me, I felt defeated and disrespected by a sport that I love—one that I had dedicated my life to and that my family truly changed, not because we were welcomed, but because we wouldn’t stop winning.’
Serena revealed she returned to her home in Florida and was left ‘hurt’ and ‘cut deeply’ by the events taking place during the match.
