The shake, which Travolta calls the “four corners,” was introduced when Grease’s choreographer needed a step at the end of “You’re The One That I Want.”

Serena Williams is already a superhero to each and every one of us. But, as it turns out, she also has a Black Panther-inspired catsuit which makes her feel like a “warrior princess”.

After Williams beat Kristya Pliskova at the French open at Stade Roland Garros, Paris on Tuesday, she spoke about the meaning behind her black bodysuit.

“It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves,” she said following her victory on Tuesday, per the Guardian.

Williams just made her return to the sport nine months after the birth of her daughter. She suffered complications at the time of the birth due to a pulmonary embolism.

In addition to being a symbol of confidence and empowerment, the suit also reminds Williams of Black Panther.

“I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit,” Williams said. “We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.”
