The reigning Australian Open champion wore Louis Vuitton, featuring a print designed by her sister Mari, described as a tribute to her Haitian and Japanese ancestry.
“The design we ended up creating speaks of our biracial heritage And in that, I think it really celebrates who we are and how we all play a role in the American dream. Is a celebration of cultures, like America itself, a melting pot of so many special and unique elements, “explained Mari according to Vogue magazine.
