Serena enjoys winning return at Indian Wells

Williams will face Zarina Diyas on her return in California. With AP Photos.Serena Williams has won her first match in her comeback at the BNP Paribas Open after a 14-month layoff for the birth of her first child.

Bartoli, who was forced to pull out of an exhibition event at Wimbledon a year ago because of a mystery virus and dramatic weight loss, has said she was targetting a return to the WTA Tour at the Miami Open later this month.

Her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, told WTAtennis.com that she aimed to win the other three Majors again: The French and US Opens, and Wimbledon. She announced her return on her Instagram account Wednesday.

"It is something I have thought about and I would like to keep thinking about it". 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. "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"

Her last tournament was the 2017 Australian Open, which she won soon after she found out she was pregnant. Since giving birth, she's been vocal about the childbirth complications she experienced, which resulted in surgery and weeks of painful recovery time that could have been avoided.

Serena Williams' attractive Vogue cover story inspired lots of oohs and aaahs, but the story that accompanied the cover caused quite a stir online.

A couple of forehand winners and a service victor saw Williams take an 8-4 lead, and she finally finished it off with another winning serve. I love my surprise so much from them. Then, it just happened, and I was like, 'I don't know.' I just dove right in. But I'm getting there and every day is a new day and every day I should be getting better.

Williams missed this year's Australian Open because she did not consider herself ready for the tournament.

In conjunction with her sister Venus, Serena has also developed an organisation to help the victims of what she describes as "senseless violence".

No-one said it would be easy, coming back after so long away, at 36 years old, and with the physical trauma that this remarkable champion has overcome in recent months.

Roger Federer is back at Indian Wells as the defending champion, the world No. 1, and a 20-time Grand Slam victor.
