Serena Williams returns to tennis after child birth

Tennis Seles backs Serena Williams to be a grand slam contender in 2018

Serena, after her year's absence, arrives without a ranking and thus unseeded, and will first play the 53-ranked Zarina Diyas-a woman who is a dozen years younger than the two-time former champion.

According to Monica Seles, Serena Williams will be a contender for Grand Slams in 2018 itself. We know this a culturally relevant topic that also resonates within Hollywood, so it was an ideal moment to leverage the platform to elevate this film and celebrate Serena Williams as a woman who has continued to break down barriers and inspire women everywhere.

Like I said, you have to give Serena time before betting any serious money on her match wise or to win tournaments.

Navratilova added that Williams' style of play means she will soon be competing at her best level.

Serena Williams (USA) in action during her Fed Cup match with sister, Venus Williams (USA) (not pictured) at U.S. Cellular Center. "I still feel like I am going to get better every day and in two months I will be way better than I am now and you have to start somewhere".

But she believes returning to singles action now - a month on from playing a Fed Cup doubles match for the United States of America - will stand her in good stead for the year's three remaining Grand Slams.

Oscars 2018: The Shape of Water Wins Best Picture at Academy Awards
An Oscars source told TMZ that Faye, 77, started their rehearsal segment by saying: "Presenting is better the second time around". Even though it was not their fault, the screen legends were ridiculed past year for announcing the wrong victor .

No one in the men's game can better Federer's haul of 20, the 36-year-old having won three of the past five slams as part of a stunning renaissance.

Roger Federer insists that eclipsing Serena Williams' tally of 23 grand slams is not a target for his career and he is just happy the American great is still playing.

Sharapova won Indian Wells in 2006 and 2013, but because of her suspension, she hasn't been able to play here since 2015.

The 36-year-old gave birth to her first child - a daughter - about six months ago, and her motherhood has provided her with newfound inspiration. "She has a family, she is a mother, she has different priorities now", Mouratoglou said. Now she wants to break records again, and especially one.

"I think she will be ready for Roland Garros".

"I think it's a wonderful thing and whatever you do, as long as you do it with passion it's all good". "But she knows she will have to go step by step, it is a long way". If I'm not ready now I'm never going to be ready.
