Serena Williams' on-court outfits are almost more of a talking point than her matches these days. On Tuesday also, American star Williams had sent the tennis world into a frenzy with her latest outfit at the Australian Open.

Williams, who won the 2017 Open while she was pregnant with her first child, appeared in a sporty turquoise Nike romper with white and black stripes.

According to a statement from Nike, which also sponsors Australian Nick Kyrgios, the Australian Open collection "takes inspiration from early Nike Tennis DNA... This look was made iconic by Andre Agassi in the '90s".

In his playing days, Agassi, who coaches Bulgarian 20th-seed Grigor Dimitrov, made bold on-court choices including denim shorts and neon colours, with the exception of Wimbledon, which has a strict white dress code.
