The message hidden inside Serena Williams’ US Open outfit as celebrities watch veteran delay retirement for another day

SERENA WILLIAMS wowed in a black dress and diamond-encrusted shoes at the US Open – his last Grand Slam before retiring.

It’s no surprise that for this special occasion, Williams chose an appropriate outfit, one that suits someone who regularly appears on the covers of Vogue and Elle magazines.

And there was even a hidden message inside the outfit.

Her longtime sponsors, Nike, commissioned a six-layer figure skating-inspired dress – in recognition of her last six Big Apple titles.

And after starting her career in New York with pearls in her hair, the Californian ends it with precious stones in her locks and 400 hand-set diamonds on her shoes.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion revealed ahead of the tournament that she plans to retire from the sport.

And she lived to fight another day beating Danka Kovinic in straight sets.

Celebrities flocked to Arthur Ashe Stadium to witness what could have been Serena’s last racket move in professional fashion.

Mike Tyson was among the slew of stars who rushed to the Flushing Meadows for the occasion.

Iron Mike appeared to be in better health than earlier this month when he was spotted in a wheelchair.

The boxing icon ditched the cane that came with him and strutted comfortably around the arena.

He was joined in the stands by Lindsey Vonn, Hugh Jackman and former US President Bill Clinton.

Fashion guru Anna Wintour and actress Rebel Wilson were also present.

And the superstars will likely be out in full force again when Serena takes on Anett Kontaveit in the second round on Wednesday.
