Serena Williams announces details about her big comeback

Svitolina may have won the prize, but New York belonged to returning champs Williams and Bartoli

Serena later revealed that she "almost died" giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia.

"My comeback could not have come on a better day", Williams said on her Instagram post. But if anyone can, Serena Williams can-maybe not in Indian Wells, but just wait until Wimbledon.

Maybe on clay [because] it's her weakest surface. Given she had not played a competitive singles match for 404 days, this was an impressive return.

Tennis sensation Serena Williams has expressed her desire to play a Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour event in Kenya. I love my surprise so much from them. I wouldn't be surprised if she wins [at Indian Wells], impressed yes, but not surprised.

"There have been so many days, even still, when I'm like, 'How am I going to keep going?' It's been really, really hard", she told the BBC. Navratilova further added that Serena's game style is something that will help her get back to the top. Other than that she stays the same. "Mentally you can take those breaks and really just concentrate on the big tournaments".

Microsoft confirms 'S Mode' is replacing plans Windows 10 S
Microsoft even previous year offered a chance to all Windows 10 S users to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free. Less than one year ago, Microsoft unveiled a new version of its Windows platform called Windows 10 S.

The 23-time Grand Slam singles victor is ramping up her return this week by playing in Indian Wells, her first WTA Tour event since she won the 2017 Australian Open.

In 2010, she opened her second school, Serena Williams Secondary in Matiliku, Makueni.

First, though, she stepped out with the Williams, Svitolina, Coco Vandeweghe, Daniela Hantuchová, Sorana Cirstea, and Shuai Zhang in NY as a taster-and as the luck of the draw would have it, faced Serena Williams in the first match.

The tennis pro is opening up about her family life. Williams and her daughter are now faring well, but women on Twitter rallied together to highlight her experience is not uncommon for women, especially Black women. Because she had had blood clots before, the athlete knew what symptoms to look out for and alerted her doctor as to what was going on.

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.
