  • Growing family!¬†Serena Williams has admitted she'definitely wants another baby¬†with husband Alexis Olympia

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.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - Serena Williams makes her return to the pro tour after a 14-month absence with a first-round match at the BNP Paribas Open on Thursday.

"Honestly, with everything I've been through, my happiest is just being out here..." I have this undying drive to be the best that I can be.

She went on to explain that she wants the pins to have more than just supportive meaning for herself and her charity, but for whoever decides to wear one.

"It is something I have thought about and would like to keep thinking about it".

Speaking to BBC, she said she has thought about before and thinks it can be an unbelievable thing.

"She is one of the best players so it is good that she is back, especially after being a mom".

I definitely want two, God willing' she told ET.'But right now I want tennis as well. So I'm going to wait and see what happens

In conjunction with her sister Venus, Serena has also developed an organisation to help the victims of what she describes as "senseless violence". She ends her post with "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"

The ad breaks during the Academy Awards featured the first showings of Williams' new Nike commercial, which sums up perfectly how much she has achieved - and why she still wants more.

"I've been trying to get back into playing tennis, which is something that I love the most, and to have this experience with Serena who is my greatest friend, means so much".

For the Williams, of course, this was just an hors d'oeuvre to the challenges of the coming days.

The first clues to Williams' form will be displayed in Thursday's night game against Diyas, Serena's first match in Indian Wells will be Thursday night against Diyas, the 24-year-old world number 53 from Kazakhstan. The siblings could face each other in the third round.

"Obviously it is tough to get back even for a champion like her", Pliskova said Wednesday.
