Tennis Today: For the love – and legality – of Serena’s catsuit
In Tennis Today, T365 may be feeling the love for Serena Williams’ catsuit but one of her rivals (the one she beat) wasn’t impressed.

Johanna Konta had a few choice words for the media earlier this week, referring to them as b******s and Johnny Nic admits in his latest column that he is slightly confused by her comments.
How do you pick the perfect tennis racket? Tennis365 caught up with Martin Aldridge, from MANTIS Sport International Limited, who gave us insight into what is required.
Then there is Serena Williams and her catsuit. The American has revealed her inspiration behind her Roland Garros attire.
Of course, we just had to do a gallery of her fashion statements, featuring catsuits, trench coats and boots.
Novak Djokovic may be into the third round of the French Open, but a pair of legends believe he won’t win the title.
What do you make of Jared Donaldson’s underhand serve against Grigor Dimitrov? Genius or a unsportmanlike?
He thought it was rather “cheeky”.
Oh and here is our GALLERY from day four at Roland Garros.
What’s in the news
Serena Williams was always going to launch her own fashion line and what better time to do it after grabbing the headlines with your catsuit at Roland Garros.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner launched @serena, her own online shop and it features underwear, dresses, outerwear, etc.
But not everyone is impressed with Serena’s catsuit with Kristyna Pliskova, who lost to her on Tuesday, questioning whether it was within the rules.
And more on Serena. This time Novak Djokovic explains why he “loves her” on Sport360.com.
The Serb says he feels for Andy Murray as the Scot tries to be fit for Wimbledon.
Meanwhile, Alexander Zverev found his post-match press conference almost as difficult as his on-court match.
What’s on social media
Here’s how Serena announced her fashion line.
They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves–tennis and fashion–and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me “no,” it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream. Today, I am proud to launch @serena , my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you’re worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard
