The new ruling sparked an outcry among Williams' fans, but the champ herself, who suffered life-threatening blood clots after giving birth to daughter Olympia past year, took it in stride.

In response to the decision, Williams said: "I feel like if and when they know that some things are for health reasons, then there's no way that they wouldn't be OK with it". I think I'm getting there.

As for playing in a Tutu, Williams said it was "easy to play in" and "aerodynamic", which means we could possibly see more tutus from Williams, and maybe a full Sailor Moon-inspired outfit or a waterbender Katara-inspired look from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Next up, if Venus keeps performing as well as she does, Serena Williams could ultimately meet her sister face to face to square off for the Grand Slam title.

Serena Williams wore a black catsuit when she played in the French open back in May to prevent blood clots following the birth of her daughter, Olympia.

Linette, the world number 68 from Poland who was facing Williams for the first time, held her own in the early going.

It was the kind of Grand Slam history Halep could have done without as she tried to expunge the memory of her first-round loss to Maria Sharapova at Flushing Meadows a year ago.

"There's still several matches to play before you're there", Williams told reporters about a possible matchup with her sister. "No one's flawless, [they're] always talking about our bodies and what we can wear and what we can't wear and I don't hear too much about the guys, do you?" "I like the atmosphere in the tournament and in the city".

Stephens, seeded third behind Halep and Caroline Wozniacki, looked to be cruising with a 3-1 lead in the second set.

Two-time Grand Slam victor Victoria Azarenka, a former world number one now ranked 80th in the world, defeated Viktoria Kuzmova 6-3, 7-5 to st up a meeting with Australian Daria Gavrilova, who steamrolled Sara Sorribes 6-0, 6-0.
