Serena Williams

She could play her sister Venus in the third round, but has understandably sounded a note of caution.

Here we get a reflective Williams, ticking off the list of reasons many had for her not to succeed.

Williams was speaking ahead of the Tiebreak Tens event in New York's Madison Square Garden, won by the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.

Serena Williams is ready to tackle the "biggest challenge of her career", according to coach Patrick Mouratoglou, as she prepares to return to the WTA Tour at the Indian Wells Masters. The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion would later tell Vogue Magazine in an interview that she developed several small blood clots in her lungs after giving birth.

Serena Williams is eyeing her first French Open title since 2015. She said she was having fun playing again and was excited for the future. She knows that coming back might take some time, but her level of expectation is high as always.

Her coach certainly does.

"I just don't see people beating her on hard courts and on grass".

Venus already knows what to expect.

"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".

'She's going to bring that instinct on the court with her, so I don't think she's too anxious about that'. The remainder of the field included Sorana Cirstea of Romania and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who retired previous year. Her serve looked threatening and she hit some menacing winners as she beat another returning player - Marion Bartoli - before losing to Zhang Shuai in the semi-finals.

First on the agenda for Federer before the BNP Paribas Open - where he will have to reach the last four in order to retain his number one ranking - was his charitable foundation's fifth Match for Africa event in support of children's education in the region, which saw him preserve his unbeaten record over Jack Sock with a 7-6 (11-9), 6-4 exhibition win in front of a crowd of more than 15,000 at SAP Center in San Jose, California.

'In two months I'll be way better but you have to start somewhere. "It takes a lot of work and I'm going to keep on going and working at it, and I encourage others to use their voice and their platforms to do that same", Williams shared.

Vandeweghe, a NY native, jumped at the chance to play at MSG.

"I didn't have to think too long", he said. The statement went on to say that the Oscars was a flawless time to launch the spot as the messages resonate so well in Hollywood.

She was on the USA team in last month's victory over the Netherlands in North Carolina and enjoys seeing both Williams sisters still playing well.

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.

"It [still] feels different", Serena said in quotes reported by the WTA Tour.

"If that's the result, yeah, that would be great", she said.

"I wish I would have made a few more shots". "The sport is great for everyone of all ages".
