Serena Williams beats Zarina Dyas in first round at Indian Wells

Serena Williams beats Zarina Dyas in first round at Indian Wells

Serena Williams, who will return to professional tennis on Thursday after more than a year, said that her comeback could not have come on a better day as it is Women's Day.

"It's official. My comeback is here".

One of the greatest tennis players of all time - Martina Navratilova expects Serena Williams to be back to her peak form soon. "I don't get to play a lot in the States anymore".

It was pointed out to Williams that it was International Women's Day.

She went on to discuss her brand new "S" pin that you can wear to support her!

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the 14th Annual Desert Smash Celebrity Tennis Event in La Quinta, Calif. on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, Serena Williams revealed that she wants to expand her family.

"It was incredible", Williams said on court after the match. If Venus had any idea she and Serena could meet so early in the Indian Wells draw, she wasn't letting on.

The tennis star posted the video of her daughter on Snapchat and also went live on Instagram to flaunt her baby's swag. "Mine [are] Strong and Sure!"

Mixing 27 unforced errors with 34 winners, it was far from easy for the unseeded Williams on the slow hardcourt in Indian Wells. "Post pics of you wearing your "S" and tag me!" she continued. "Every time I step onto the court, it feels like a homecoming", the caption reads.

In recent years, as the pre-eminent sportswoman of her generation and one of the world's most influential figures, Williams has begun to speak more freely about issues which concern her. "I'm just out here on this journey and doing the best I can".

After correcting the protocol for the "rock-paper-scissors" game used to determine who served first, Williams fell behind 4-2, but a double-fault from Bartoli followed by two aces from Serena saw the American great ahead 5-4. The nurse thought she was confused as a result of the pain medication, Williams insisted until doctors ordered an ultrasound of her legs and eventually sent her for the CT.

After that harrowing situation, Williams popped open her fresh C-section wound from the forceful coughing caused by the blood clots. BT Sport is the live home of 52 WTA events per season - find out how we get you live in just 15 minutes right here.
