In the end, Williams had to have a filter inserted into a major vein to prevent any possible clots from entering her lungs, and was forced to go on bed rest for the next six weeks.

He quickly levelled at 3-3 on Tuesday, saved four break points in the eighth game before saving four set points in the breaker. "We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that".

But right now her priority is reclaiming her number one spot, after she dropped to 453 in the world rankings following her absence from tennis to give birth.

The three-time French Open champion broke again early in the third set, and held on for the rest of the match.

Now, having beaten two fellow Czechs in the first two rounds - Barbora Krejcikova in the first, 7-6 (6), 6-4, then Lucie Safarova, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 - she is preparing to take on the Russian.

At 36, we do not have many more years of Serena Williams left, but she and her elder sister Venus are powerful role models for young women of all races, particularly those who want to be sportspersons.

"It just kind of expands that, and I really, really embrace it".

"I love Serena. All the superlatives and handsome words that you can think of she deserves it".


Barty, though, had her own motivations and looked comfortable on centre stage.

Laughing as she made reference to the fictional nation in sub-Saharan Africa, which is home to superhero Black Panther from Marvel Comics, Williams told reporters: "I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess, a queen from Wakanda maybe". She needs to win five more matches, and it only gets more hard from here.

Williams added that she could use the 2004 goal to remind her daughter in the future that she was able to overcome her body image struggles. But Williams' movement around the court is not as slick as she would like - although she has played only five singles matches since her daughter's birth.

Williams spoke about her tight-fitting outfit after her opening round victory over Kristyna Pliskova at the French Open.

"I feel like everything else will fall into place".

However, despite her health battles, the 23-time Grand Slam victor hasn't been put off having any more children.

I'm concerned about Serena's conditioning, as it catches up to everyone who isn't consistently playing.
