She will be wearing an asymmetrical off the shoulder dress with a full tulle skirt which will carry the designer's Nike logo in quotation marks on the shoulder and Serena's name on the sleeve; this will be paired with a collared jacket with monochrome contrast stitching.

For this year's tournament in New York, Williams will once again make a statement wearing a dress created by designer Virgil Abloh.

He said: "With Serena, we have one of our generation's most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse".

"Every girl loves a tutu, or at least I do!" Williams told Vogue she appreciates that the look marries strength and femininity, proving that she can be strong and attractive.

He said in a press release that he hoped to "embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis".

Williams, who often forgoes traditional "tennis whites" for more fashion-forward pieces on the court, began her partnership with Nike in 2003, signing an initial five-year contract for a reported $40 million. Both include a tutu, in reference of Williams' love of ballet. The flouncy skirt is feminine but also moves well for playing the game.

"It has all the really strong elements, from the leather to that really cool stretchy material". "I felt so feminine in the tutu, which is probably my favorite part of it". It has a sort of ballerina-esque silhouette to symbolize her grace. It embodies exactly what I always say: you can be strong and attractive. "It's just about it living on the body and expressing Serena's spirit with each swing of the racket", Virgil explained. Despite her stunning loss at the recent Silicon Valley Classic, fans are expecting her back and better than ever at next week's U.S. Open - and she's sure to do it in style.

Take a peek at the one-of-a-kind range ahead, which will be available to shop at select Nike stores later this month.
