In an article for CNN last month, she wrote she feels "lucky to have survived" Alexis Olympia's birth, having suffered a pulmonary embolism after an emergency Caesarean section. She has been practising hard for that, and competition is part of the process.
"I didn't necessarily begin my career in tennis thinking I was going to be breaking down barriers in the sport, but I found myself in this space with a huge platform at my fingertips", said Williams.
"But I keep going and I know that I might not be at my best yet, but I'm getting there and every day is a new day and every day I should be getting better".
"As long as I'm moving forward, even if it's at a turtle's pace, I'm OK with that".
Monday's event, which featured eight players facing off in 10-point "super tie breaks" as they vied for a $250,000 winner's prize, was a chance to sharpen her skills.Williams bowed out in the second round, gaining a 9-7 lead over China's Zhang Shuai but eventually falling 13-11.
"She needs more than anything to compete and that is why she will plan to play Indian Wells and Miami".
Williams, who claimed a 23rd grand slam title at last year's Australian Open before hanging up her racket for the season upon discovering she was pregnant with her first child, also skipped this year's tournament in Melbourne. "I have high expectations, and I think everyone should set high expectations for themselves".
"They hung around and did unbelievable for the game and I'm just really happy for them, to be quite honest". "Over time, I became much more conscious of the impact I had, and I became more conscious of what I had to do to make a difference". "I don't need any more motivation", Williams added. I've always been an extremely motivated person. "I mean, the matches are definitely a good way to know where you are, but obviously she knows how to play", the 37-year-old Venus said.
