Three-time French Open champion Serena Williams inaugurated the first-ever night session match in the history of the Grand Slam with a win in style. She overcame Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu in straight sets 7-6(6), 6-2.

Fans were quick to spot the details on the 39-year-old sporting legend's Nike shoes, including a range of motivational slogans.

Most importantly, and most prominently, is the name of Serena's three-year-old daughter Olympia.

It also had Paris graffiti drawings on them, even 'RG' for Roland-Garros.

The inspirational quotes: Je ne m’arrêterai pas and Je ne m’arrêterai jamais. Translated from French: 'I will not stop' and 'I will never stop fighting'.

Her light green-coloured outfit, complete with a black Nike sash, got equal attention.

Serena is chasing her 24th Grand Slam title which would put her equal with Australian Margaret Court's record.
