Serena Williams claims first major post-baby win in black catsuit

Serena Williams has spoken about her struggle with postnatal depression following the hard birth of her daughter.

So, when did Ashleigh Barty know officially that a second round date against Serena Williams at the French Open awaited her?

"I absolutely love this collection because it represents all the facets of my life as an athlete, an entrepreneur, and now, a mother", said Williams in a press release. "But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams". So the suit has definitely a little functionality to it. She is playing at a Slam for the first time since winning the Australian Open in 2017 when she was already nearly two months pregnant. She said, "Winning's always been the way I define myself and I want it to stay that way for a long time".

"It's a fun suit, but it's also functional so I can be able to play without any problems".

Williams battled back from a 3-0 deficit in the tie-break to take the first set. "I've been wearing trousers, in general, a lot when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going", Williams told reporters. I can show Olympia that I struggled, but now I'm happy with who I am and what I am and what I look like...

Serena Williams has returned to the court after giving birth to her first child previous year - and she's done so in dramatic style.


"You know, emotionally I think it's different, because I'm so emotionally attached to my daughter". So I was just winging it in the last minute.

VideoThe tennis career of Bernard Tomic has taken another freaky chapter, with the Aussie losing out to a player who drove more than ten hours to make the match.

Having been off the tour to give birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian in September, many in the sport wondered if Williams would still be a contender at the majors especially with her ranking at 451.

The catsuit, according to Williams, is created to help prevent blood clots and also wanted to represent for the moms out there who might need a boost of confidence after giving birth to their little ones. "It's really fun", she said in reference to the fictional African nation which features in the Marvel comics and was the centrepiece of the Black Panther movie blockbuster. I think Serena is also in a very different place and just what an opportunity.

Barty, just 17 then and prior to an 18-month hiatus from tennis, has since established herself in the world's top 20 - and Williams is super wary of the threat the Australian poses.
