  • I’m ready to just jump in and get started’ Serena Williams eager to hit with big guns again

Tennis sensation Serena Williams has expressed her desire to play a Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour event in Kenya.

Williams was pregnant when she lifted the trophy in Melbourne previous year, and missed the rest of 2017 awaiting the birth of her daughter in September.

Bartoli, who was forced to pull out of an exhibition event at Wimbledon past year because of a mystery virus and dramatic weight loss, has said she was targetting a return to the WTA Tour at the Miami Open later this month.

The tennis pro is opening up about her family life.

In the live Instagram video, Alexis Olympia Jr. played with a white mini Wilson tennis racket as she crawled and cooed. One of them is to try and play long enough for her daughter to watch and appreciate what she has achieved.

Williams has made fleeting appearances since she won in Melbourne 14 months ago while seven weeks pregnant: an exhibition match in Dubai in December and a doubles match for the United States Fed Cup team against the Netherlands last month. "I think it would be incredible".

She was in great company in NY when it comes to tough women who have overcome challenges in their tennis careers. She has been in training for six months, and hopes to rejoin her colleagues in Miami in a fortnight's time. The Williams sisters could meet in the third round.

Williams dropped the first two points, but quickly had a break point attempt in the first game. I'm just expecting to see where I am more than anything.

"This is a good time to start for the summer".

For the Williams, of course, this was just an hors d'oeuvre to the challenges of the coming days.

Williams' only competitive appearances since the birth came in December at an exhibition in Abu Dhabi, a Fed Cup doubles match with sister Venus last month and an exhibition in NY on Monday.

She is now healthy again, but skipped this year's Australian Open because she did not consider herself ready for the tournament.

"Obviously it is tough to get back even for a champion like her", Pliskova said Wednesday.
