US Open Camila Giorgi Venus Williams top off Alize Cornet

The dress (black), which is commonly referred to as a "Tutu" is part of Abloh's new collection (Off-White x Nike) inspired by her - with the name QUEEN.

However, she was reluctant to discuss Serena when asked to describe the specific challenges.

Defending champion Sloane Stephens avoided an early exit, recovering from a set down to defeat Ukrainian qualifier Anhelina Kalinina 4-6 7-5 6-2.

And Venus is hoping she can be reunited with her sister for the first time in nearly two years.

So when it came to the US Open, everyone expected her to go back to "traditional" tennis gear but not Serena.

The incident sparked an immediate storm over sexism.

The Belarusian said the USTA displayed double standards for sanctioning Cornet while male players routinely remove their shirts courtside as the heat and humidity bite. "But whoever you're feeling like - me or Venus - it'll work". "They are such different individuals and such different characters on the court".

But the organisation's president, Bernard Giudicelli, told Tennis magazine: "You have to respect the game and the place".

Williams expressed her pleasure to return to China, stating: "I love playing in China because the fans there are so great and always really appreciative".

Meanwhile, Spanish 12th seed Garbine Muguruza succumbed to unseeded Karolina Muchova of the Czech Republic who recovered from a set down to win 3-6 6-4 6-4 to book a third round clash with Australian Ashleigh Barty.

However, ninth seeded Julia Goerges, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon, slumped to a 7-6 (12/10), 6-3 defeat to Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation.
