As the Williams sisters prepared to face off at the US Open on Sept. 1, there was much speculation over whether Serena or Venus—seeded 16th and 17th respectively (prior to the match), would take home the win. (It was baby sis Serena this round, proving that motherhood hasn’t slowed her down, after all.)
Serena Williams advanced to her 10th straight US Open quarterfinals after defeating Estonian Kaia Kanepi 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 on Sunday, according to NBC Sports.
When we heard Virgil Abloh and Serena Williams were collaborating on Williams’ 2018 U.S. Open wardrobe, we were understandably intrigued. Two black phenoms at the top of their respective games are exciting—especially when supported by an athletic apparel juggernaut like Nike.
