Serena Williams Isn't Done Winning Titles

She gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. six months ago. Her other titles came in 1999 and 2001 before she boycotted the event for several years.

WTA Indian Wells features all the world's top players and all the action is being shown exclusively live on BT Sport every day up to and including until the final on Sunday, March 18th.

"It is something I have thought about and would like to keep thinking about it". " "But she's just so strong off the mark, she's not going to play unless she thinks she can win, that's why she pulled out of the Australian Open".

Her last tournament was the 2017 Australian Open, which she won soon after she found out she was pregnant.

That, and the chance to stick it to those who've tried to put her and her fellow females down all her life. "As long as I'm moving forward, even if it's at a turtle's pace, then I'm OK with that".

The tennis superstar is also speaking up about the need for improved maternal health care, particularly for black women.

Serena Williams makes a return to professional tennis on Thursday.


Williams dropped the first two points, but quickly had a break point attempt in the first game. Since giving birth, she's been vocal about the childbirth complications she experienced, which resulted in surgery and weeks of painful recovery time that could have been avoided. "I just want to do the best that I can".

Williams, 36, suffered a pulmonary embolism after her first child was delivered by Caesarean section.

"I've been trying to get back into playing tennis, which is something that I love the most, and to have this experience with Serena who is my greatest friend, means so much".

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.

Unseeded Williams is scheduled to open her Indian Wells campaign with a first round tie against Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan on Thursday. The siblings could potentially face each other in the third round.

"They are for now only available for my fans that come see my at Indian wells, and Miami starting Wednesday as well as Thursday when I play!"
