ET caught up with her longtime friend Gayle King at the opening night ceremony for the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Open where she weighed in on Williams' form-fitting bodysuit getting banned from the French Open and the pro athlete's response.

But Williams broke her in the seventh game of the opening set to gain the upper hand and from there the American superstar rolled.

The 36-year-old downed 68th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland 6-4 6-0 in her first home slam since becoming a mother.

"I knew I had two loves-tennis and fashion-and had to find a way to make them coexist", Williams said earlier this year. It feels really good. Ok, I'll go with a tutu and fishnets then.

Williams, who counts six US Open titles among her 23 Grand Slams, can match Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 majors with another title at Flushing Meadows. She made this known while speaking at a press conference at the US Open.

Williams not only wore the black catsuit because it made her look like a badass superhero, but to improve circulation in her legs.

McCain spent the past year undergoing cancer treatment, but his family said Friday that he would discontinue that treatment. He went on to win a seat in the House and in 1986, the Senate, where he served for the rest of his life.

After Williams held serve from deuce for a 5-3 lead, Linette would hold to force Williams to serve out the set.

"There's still several matches to play before you're there", Williams told reporters about a possible matchup with her sister.

I believe it was Lil' Kim who once said, "No matter what people say, we got it going on".

Serena Williams, a six-time victor in NY who is seeded 17th after returning from maternity leave earlier in the year, didn't want to be drawn on playing her sister just yet.

But even though it seems like Olympia will be growing up without knowing the meaning of having a birthday party, she gets celebrated every day by her parents who can not stop posting cute pics of her on social media.
