Osaka's outfit was designed by her sister Mari, and the tennis star donned it to represent her biracial heritage. Her hair was styled in a traditional Haitian and Japanese way, and she finished off with a pair of boots.

Fashionbombdaily also posted a picture of Osaka wearing the same outfit but posing differently. On the other hand, Williams opted for a slick bodysuit, an elaborate feathered cape designed by Gucci, and silver shoes.

A third fan noted that she loved Williams, but she felt like changing her look from head to toe. In addition, the user said Williams's stylist was wrong for giving the star a hideous look. Another user wrote, "Hot Messsss WHAT SHE GOT ON."

Irrespective of the on-court rivalry between tennis stars, they have learned to love and support one another amid negative comments.

Williams put her selfless side on display during the French Open after showing her support to Osaka following the latter's withdrawal from the tournament.

Osaka withdrew after being threatened and sanctioned by Tennis authorities for avoiding press conferences. Williams noted that she understood Osaka's plight and wished she could hug the young star.
