The 36-year-old makes her comeback to the WTA Tour this week, when he takes on Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first round at Indian Wells in California.

Serena was playing singles for the first time this year as she prepares to return to the WTA Tour for the first time since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on September 1.

The 36-year-old warmed up for Indian Wells by featuring at the Tie Break Tens at Madison Square Garden.

"The plan is to get back to her best level".


Multiple Grand Slam victor Serena Williams should be match fit and ready in time for the French Open in May, according to her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

American great Williams won the Australian Open in 2017 despite being two months pregnant, and has only played one exhibition match and a doubles dead rubber in the Fed Cup since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Jr in September, although she is due to play at the Tie Break Tens in NY on Monday. She married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and gave birth to a baby girl, Alexis. I keep saying this - whenever anybody doubts Serena, she thrives. Who knows how she'll come out of the starting gate.

"My main thing is I would love for my daughter to be around with me doing great and playing incredible so it definitely gives me some motivation". Madison Keys, who reached the US Open final past year, and Lauren Davis, who had triple-match point on top-ranked Simona Halep at the Australian Open, came through her academy. "She has a family, she is a mother, she has different priorities now", Mouratoglou said. "That gives her more motivation, more incentive and she always comes out the victor". She has been practising hard for that, and competition is part of the process. The victor of two tournaments already this year, she won the last seven points to break away from a 3-3 tie against Venus, then swept Vandeweghe 10-0.

Evert thinks Williams will win at least one Grand Slam title this season. "It's really just fun to mentor these kids and try to help them reach their goals and their dreams". Maybe on clay [because] it's her weakest surface.
