Serena Williams Not At Her Best But Ready To Make Comeback

Serena Williams Not At Her Best But Ready To Make Comeback

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

He added that her target was to win Grand Slam titles and that he expected Williams to be back to her best by the French Open in May. "I have the best thing I could ever want right now", Williams said of her daughter with husband Alexis Ohanian, the 34-year-old founder of Reddit.

Like I said, you have to give Serena time before betting any serious money on her match wise or to win tournaments.

"It's been really, really hard", said Serena.

"I think she'll be ready for Roland Garros".

She'll play an exhibition match on Monday night at Madison Square Garden in NY, then compete at Indian Wells, California, to get back into proper shape before the French Open. If I'm not ready now, I'm just never going to be ready. I feel in two months I'll be way better than I am now, but you have to start somewhere. "I really think that is the best first round". She decided against defending her Australian Open crown earlier this year, although did play an exhibition match against Jelena Ostapenko in December and was part of the US Fed Cup team last month.




The 23-time Grand Slam victor will face Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first night match (10 p.m. ET). The competitions she will play until then will help her and every day she progresses on her fitness. The message is a strong one for all women out there, even if you haven't won 23 Grand Slam singles titles.

"It was good", she said of the experience.

Her long-awaited return to singles action will come against Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan in California later this week.

"My expectations, I don't know what they are". It's just a little different. "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 ideal time to start".

"While I had a pretty easy pregnancy, my daughter was born by emergency C-section after her heart rate dropped dramatically during contractions".

"I hope by me doing something good, Novak [Djokovic], Rafa [Nadal], [Andy] Murray, all the top guys are chipping in and doing their own thing or supporting other foundations".
