Serena to return at Indian Wells

Serena to return at Indian Wells”

And she has admitted the road back to the court has been a tough one.

She gave birth to her first child on September 1 previous year, post which, she remained bed-ridden for six weeks.

"I just can not bet against her", she said in a recent phone interview with The Associated Press.

"I do not know if my shoulder and my knees are going to hold, there are so many question marks", she said.

"Because of what I went through, it would be really hard if I didn't have the healthcare that I have - and to imagine all the other women that do go through that without the same healthcare, without the same response, it's upsetting". "As long as I'm moving forward, even if it's at a turtle's pace, I'm OK with that".

Serena Williams has had issues in exhibition play, but this will be her first WTA match since winning the Australian Open and then taking a leave of absence due to her pregnancy.

Serena said she is preparing to return to the WTA Tour six months after giving birth. "I know that I might not be at my best yet, but I am getting there".

'In two months I'll be way better but you have to start somewhere.

Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. expected to play in SEC tournament
The Tigers will play the victor of Wednesday's game between Georgia and Vanderbilt in the second round of the SEC tournament. He has not played since Missouri's November 10 season-opener against Iowa State , a game in which he played just two minutes.

"He's so endearing. When he cried (after the win), I think the whole world cried along with him".

Mouratoglou described the former world champion's post-maternity return as "the biggest challenge" of her career.

"It would be so [much] fun - the help that we could do, and the awareness and the athletes and the incredible players that would come out of Africa would just be unbelievable", she added.

Williams last appeared in a Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open.

"I don't agree with Margaret and her thinking", said the ESPN analyst and 18-time Grand Slam singles champion.

"I have the best thing I could ever want right now". Andy Murray remains sidelined after hip surgery, but Novak Djokovic, who has been bothered by a right elbow injury for months, is now on the entry list for Indian Wells. "She has a family, she is a mother, she has different priorities now", Mouratoglou said.

Serena Williams will make her long-awaited return to singles competition Thursday night at the BNP Paribas Open. Diyas is coming off a match in which she struggled to even get her serve in play, and even Serena at 50 percent will eat that alive. If I'm not ready now, I'm just never going to be ready. "If I want to play in those Grand Slams (the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open) and play well, I think now is the flawless time to start". The victor of two tournaments already this year, she won the last seven points to break away from a 3-3 tie against Venus, then swept Vandeweghe 10-0.
