Serena Williams made her triumphant return to court at the French Open in May, following the birth of her daughter, and donned an all-black Nike bodysuit, which stole the show.

Now, according to ESPN, the 23-time Grand Slam winner will not be allowed to wear the skin-tight black catsuit next year, as French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli, says the tournament will be introducing a dress code because, “I think that sometimes we’ve gone too far.” The comment is sourced in an interview for Tennis Magazine‘s 500th edition.

He continued, “It will no longer be accepted. One must respect the game and the place.”

Without going into specifics, Giudicelli said the tournament would “impose certain limits” but would not be as strict as Wimbledon, which requires players to wear all-white. For the full story, head over to ESPN.

In related news, Serena Williams is the highest-paid female athlete of 2018, according to Forbes‘ annual list.
