Serena Williams is bringing her A game in every way! At the 2018 French Open, the tennis superstar scored her first major win since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, nine months ago.

Her performance was top notch — and so was her outfit.

“I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess,” Williams said during a press conference, adding that she felt like a queen from Wakanda, the fictional nation in the movie “Black Panther.”

“I’ve always wanted to be a superhero,” Williams said. “It’s kind of my way of being a superhero.”

Besides making her feel amazing, Williams' outfit choice was also meant to inspire other new moms, especially ones who have also suffered post-pregnancy health issues.

“For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy — here you go. If I can do it, so can you!” she wrote on Instagram.

Williams, 36, is serving up a lot of empowerment; and we love it.

Williams suffered from dangerous blood clots and other complications after giving birth, forcing her to stay in bed for weeks.

Her bodysuit, in addition to inspiring other women, helps the professional athlete with her medical condition.

“I’ve been wearing pants in general a lot when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going,” Williams told reporters. “So it’s a fun suit but it’s also functional, so I can be able to play without any problems.”

“Love you so much, Serena,” one fan wrote. “Thank you for shining your light and representing mothers regardless of their 'snapback'. You look incredible.”

Plenty of fans are hoping that the three-time French Open champion will win big again this year.

In the meantime, Williams is killing it on the court with her incredible talent and “warrior princess” style.
