The suit, nicknamed 'catsuit,' is an all-black sleek body suit which has allowed the athlete to play her sport without the fear of her blood clots becoming an issue. Since having her daughter last year, Williams has experienced a number of health problems.

In an interview with NPR, Williams said, “I’ve had a lot of problems with my blood clots, God I don’t know how many I’ve had in the past 12 months…I’ve been wearing pants in general a lot when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going.”
