Serena Williams to Return to Tennis for First Time Since Giving Birth

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

The 23-time Grand Slam champion is back in action after giving birth to her son Alexis in September a year ago.

The record Serena really wants to take is Court's all-time tally of Slam singles titles - 24 - three of which came when she was already a mum.

WTA Indian Wells features all the world's top players and all the action is being shown exclusively live on BT Sport every day up to and including until the final on Sunday, March 18th. "If I keep playing hopefully I can win".

Williams has been away since winning the 2017 Australian Open early in her pregnancy. Beyond the specific experience of childbirth, Serena said doctors aren't listening to black women, and she says that needs to change.

After taking a deep breath, she unleashed a second serve that kicked up viciously, forcing Kazakh Diyas to reach high for her return, unable to get it back into play.

That, and the chance to stick it to those who've tried to put her and her fellow females down all her life. "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"

She was in great company in NY when it comes to tough women who have overcome challenges in their tennis careers. At the time, she was eight weeks pregnant. On Diyas' third service game, Williams had a triple break point attempt, but couldn't get it, still. "I'm just out here on this journey doing the best I can".

Get ready for Google Lens, Android users!
Google has mentioned that the feature is coming to iOS soon but they have not given a solid timeframe on when it will arrive. That means that even if you have an Android device with Google Photos installed, you may not be able to use Lens.

Serena Williams is back on the tennis court for International Women's Day.

"I would have thought I would have retired six years ago, but I'm still here and I'm playing great, and I think I'll still be playing good".

News of Serena's possible visit to Kenya has elicited excitement and Tennis Kenya secretary Wanjiru Mbugua said it could not have come at a better time. "I just want to do the best that I can".

Serena, 36, will need to get through her first round match against 53rd ranked Zarina Diyas and the 29th-seeded Kiki Bertens.

In conjunction with her sister Venus, Serena has also developed an organisation to help the victims of what she describes as "senseless violence".

Mixing 27 unforced errors with 34 winners, it was far from easy for the unseeded Williams on the slow hardcourt in Indian Wells.
