But closer inspection—which many of her male fans undoubtedly undertook—revealed that the five-times Wimbledon champion was actually preserving her modesty with flesh-colored underwear.

imageThe 29-year-old attracted plenty of wolf-whistles for the risque outfit, which brought to mind the famous Athena ‘Tennis Girl’ poster of model Fiona Butler scratching her naked bottom that once adorned the walls of so many teenage boys’ bedrooms.

The bright yellow dress also boasted a flesh-coloured panel at the front, making it appear to have a plunging neckline.


Williams’s outfit attracted a great deal of speculation on the internet, with dozens of fans asking her via the Twitter social networking site if she had ‘gone commando’ – or worn no underwear – on court.

She explained to fans: ‘My dress for the Australian Open has been one of my best designs ever! It’s all about the slits and V-neck. I am wearing undershorts the same colour as my skin, so it gives the slits in my dress the full effect!’

She added: ‘This is completely my design. I just sketched it out. The whole idea is just about the illusion that I’m wearing a deep V-neck. Then the idea was to wear shorts that were like the same colour as my skin. It works very well, apparently.”
