Serena's Comeback, Her Greatest Challenge, Coach Says

07 March, 2018, 07:26 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Serena Williams

The former number one tennis player also says the name of current record-holder Margaret Court should remain on the arena at the Australian Open.

She won a record seven French Opens and reached the semifinals or better in 52 of 56 majors. And just Venus could be her third round opponent.

Garbine Muguruza and Karolina Pliskova could be her semifinals opponents.

She'll play an exhibition match tonight at Madison Square Garden in NY, then compete at Indian Wells, California, in her first tour event in more than a year.

Williams, who has been absent from Tour since giving birth to her daughter in September, defeated Marion Bartoli - herself returning to action after retiring in August 2013 - before losing to Zhang Shuai.

International Women's Day starts on March 8, and Nike is marking it with a new commercial starring Serena Williams, who steps off the court to focus on what it means to be a woman. I wouldn't be surprised if she wins [at Indian Wells], impressed yes, but not surprised.

Her coach certainly does.

"Serena's target (for this year) will be to win grand slams", Mouratoglou said in an interview with wtatennis.com. "I can see during practices the same determination, the same level of expectation", he said. I'm glad you brought it up because I think it would be awesome.




The bould Zarina will know she was in a game after that even though six weeks of Serenas time away from the sport was spent in bed as she recovered from emergency surgery.

The event was the first women-only Tie Break Tens tournament in the United States. The remainder of the field included Sorana Cirstea of Romania and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who retired previous year. 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.

"I think it's a wonderful thing and whatever you do, as long as you do it with passion it's all good". "It would be so fun - the help that we could do, and the awareness and the athletes and the awesome players that would come out of Africa would just be unbelievable". Her grandfather, Ernie, and uncle Kiki, now an National Basketball Association executive, both played for the New York Knicks.

"This is a good sign for me, now I'm ready for the future. I think she's only going to come out when she's at 100 per cent".

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.

"There are three Grand Slams left this season".

Williams restarts her tennis career on the WTA tour next week with 23 major titles. "She can still have a great year". "The sport is great for everyone of all ages".
