She’s back and better than ever!
It’s been six months since the grand slam champion and her husband, Alexis Ohanian welcomed their beautiful baby girl Alexis Olympia and now, she’s coming back to win BIG!
Williams headed back to participate in her first professional match in a special game against Zarina Diyas. The match was part of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California.
404 days later, she's back.

The big comeback marks as her first event since the 2017 Australia Open.
We couldn’t help but notice that Serena returned on one of the best days of the year, International Women’s day!
It's official. My comeback is here. This Thursday I will start playing tennis again professionally for the first time since giving birth to my daughter. This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida- both my home states. Thursday, the day I play my very first match, marks international women's day. My comeback could not have come on a better day and I decided I wanted to do something different let you all be apart of my long journey back (if you want of course!!) So I created my Serena Gold toned "S" pin. When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity which supports the Yetunde Price Resource center. I want this gold "S" mean something special to you personally. What is one S word in your life that means something to you? Mine is Strong and Sure! So when I wear my "S" pin I am representing Strength, and Sureness. What would your "S" mean? They are for now only available for my fans that come see my at Indian wells, and Miami starting Wednesday as well as Thursday when I play!! Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin. Post pics of you wearing your "S" and tag me! Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!!
Welcome back Serena Williams!
