Serena ousts Barty from French Open

  • GETTYRafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic at the Rome Masters

The tennis ace defeated Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 in the first round at Roland-Garros, and afterwards said the new black catsuit she was sporting on court had helped her win.

But as she makes her Grand Slam comeback at the French Open following the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia last September, it was clear that her legacy remains incomplete.

But when Serena slammed a crosscourt forehand victor into an open court to break back in the next game, the roar that rocked Philippe Chatrier Court told the world she was not done yet. "It just kind of expands that, and I really, really embrace it".

But right now her priority is reclaiming her number one spot, after she dropped to 453 in the world rankings following her absence from tennis to give birth.

Serena Williams is a member of a board of advisers to Oath, HuffPost's parent company.

However, it was Williams who made the fewer errors and secured the most important break to take a 4-3 lead before she sealed victory in the 10th game. "And then if I need to train again, I have X time in training because of her nap schedules".

At this point, it is a well known fact that Serena's husband and father of her daughter is just the sweetest, most loving and most supportive man ever!

"Honestly, sometimes I still think I have to deal with it".


Williams also said that being a mom meant managing her time differently at major events such as Grand Slams.

Speaking after her win Williams also said: "I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of, [a] queen from Wakanda".

But Williams drew on her unrivalled fighting qualities - and energy reserves some doubted she still possesses at nearly 37 and eight months into motherhood - to stave off Australia's 17th seed after one hour and 46 minutes.

But as the match wore on, and rust fell from the American's game, she single-mindedly imposed her will.

She won her opening match against Krystina Pliskova, but struggled from the outset against Barty in the evening encounter on Philippe Chatrier. "And one of her best assets is that when her back is against the wall, the best comes out".

The 23-time Grand Slam champion covers the July issue of Harper's Bazaar UK.

"I feel like everything else will fall into place". That's what I want to look forward to doing.
