Serena Williams still dealing with postpartum depression

  • Serena Williams celebrates winning a point

But Williams, who married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in mid-November following the birth of their daughter, said she is keen to have another child, and soon.

After she broke for a 3-1 lead with a blazing crosscourt victor, tremors were felt all around the arena as Williams smashed the ball away with all her might to wrap up the opening set.

The last time Sharapova beat Williams was in 2004.

Williams only returned to action at the start of 2018 after giving birth to her child, while Sharapova served a 15-month suspension for testing positive to illegal drug meldonium.

Australian Barty, 22, took the first set, but Williams' rhythm improved as she fought back to win 3-6 6-3 6-4.

"If I wasn't playing tennis, I'd be pregnant right now - sorry, I'm one of those women", she said.

What has Serena Williams said ahead of the French Open match?

Sharapova hasn't defeated Williams in 14 years and is frank when it comes to discussing the reasons behind that drought. The match was hyped like a Grand Slam final, with the tournament played at Wimbledon.

"I don't have any negative feeling towards her". They met in the Paris final in 2013 and in the quarter-final of the 2016 Australian Open, which was Sharapova's last match before a 15-month doping ban.


If I can get Serena at a low price or even plus money, I'm taking it. "Despite the record that I have against her, I always look forward to coming out on the court and competing against the best players".

"I didn't think he would win (Roland Garros) 10 times, but I knew he would win five or six".

And while Williams was pushed a little harder by Goerges, the American never looked troubled en route to a 6-3, 6-4 win. "I'm going to be here, fighting my heart out". When asked about the tie with Serena, Sharapova said, "I think anytime you play against Serena you know what you're up against".

"She's playing really well and I think this is her best surface, so we'll see", Williams said of Sharapova.

Earlier on Saturday, Russian two-time victor Sharapova beat sixth seed Karolina Pliskova 6-2 6-1.

Petra Kvitova's hot streak on clay ended in disappointing fashion as the Czech lost 7-6 (6) 7-6 (4) to Anett Kontaveit in a delayed French Open third round match. I have been wearing trousers in general a lot when I play so I can keep, you know, the blood circulation going.

She will face German Julia Gorges today for a place in the last 16 of the French Open. Williams not only sprinted to the ball in time, she whipped a cross-court forehand passing victor to go up 3-1, then let out a loud yell and raised her fist.

Spanish third seed Garbine Muguruza, the 2016 champion, was too strong for French No. 257 Fiona Ferro 6-4, 6-3. The American made a brief foray on the tour earlier this season, but she played only four matches. Her best performance at Roland Garros was a quarterfinal appearance in 2012.
