Zendaya has hit headlines around the world with her looks in recent weeks, as she has favoured tennis skirts, white looks and even overtly themed styles. 

Earlier this month, she wore custom-designed shoes by Loewe, featured a pin-thin heel with a tennis ball placed through the middle. 

On Wednesday, she shunned such overtly tennis themed style, instead opting for crisp whites to give a nod to the sporty storyline of the film.  

Zendaya stars as Tashi Duncan in Challengers, a former tennis prodigy who gives up her career after suffering an injury and becomes a coach. She begins training her colleague Art, who is played by Mike Faist, whom she falls in love with and marries. 

However, Tashi gets entangled in a love triangle when Art is enrolled on the Challenger Tour and faces off against her ex Patrick – played by Josh O’Connor.

The sizzling flick — which features intimate scenes that fans joked would upset Zendaya’s boyfriend Tom Holland — comes from Suspiria and Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino and boasts several steamy moments.

Zendaya has confessed that she didn’t know ‘anything’ about tennis before she signed up to the movie, despite a previous trip to Wimbledon.

She told Heart Evenings with Dev Griffin: ‘When I went to Wimbledon it was before I really knew anything about tennis. I was just there to see Serena. I was one of those people who was like “I have no idea what’s going on?”’

‘It was one those moments where I was like, I don’t have to at the time understand tennis to understand the magic and poetry of her movement and watching her play.’

‘So it was, I was in awe, even though I had no idea what I was looking at and so I was so grateful that once I had been exposed to this film [Challengers] and fell in love with tennis and had spent a lot of time appreciating this spot…

‘I got to see her again during the US open after we filmed and it was a whole other experience.’

‘I was like “I finally get to know what’s going on!” Wimbledon is very you know, it’s quiet like you can hear a pin drop, whereas the US open is like “let’s go Serena!” like that literally was my mum next to me.’
