The US Open Series is the seven-week summer tennis season linking 10 ATP and WTA tournaments together. The Series leads to the US Open. It is often referred to as the U.S. or North American hard court season.

It was organized in 2004 as a way to focus more attention on American tennis tournaments by getting more of them on domestic television. Until 2004, most summer North American tournaments were not on television, the exceptions being the highly televised ATP Masters events in Canada and Cincinnati.

Here’s a peek at what Venus Williams will wear on court at the 2012 Olympics.

The tennis dress is part of a new red, white and blue Olympic themed EleVen collection.

Williams designed the collection with Wonder Woman in mind. The collection is made up of a dress and a skirt and top combo with a red, white, navy and gold color palate.

“I hope it will help me channel my favorite superhero and manifest another gold medal,” said Venus.

The limited-edition collection will be available exclusively at elevenbyvenus.com.
