Serena being Serena is an unstoppable force on a tennis court

Serena Williams has caused a stir with her attire at the French Open.

Williams, who was one of the guests at the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex earlier this month, returned to the court for her first Grand Slam appearance this week at the French Open and will also feature at Wimbledon in July.

Williams battled back from a 3-0 deficit in the tie-break to take the first set.

In September 2017, Williams gave birth to her daughter, Alexia Olympia Ohanian Jr with husband Alexis Ohanian. Barty took over a year away from the game of tennis also-but in her case, it was to pursue a professional cricket career. "We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that". She lost her number-ine ranking for going on maternity leave, after all.

Barty led by a set and a break before falling 3-6 6-3 6-4 to the returning grand slam colossus.

She then gestured to her bicep and said, "This is me, and this is my weapon and machine".

The 36-year-old champion also dealt with a myriad of complications during her pregnancy.

Walmart: The retail giant says it's giving away as much as 1.2 million free doughnuts to customers at all stores nationwide today. Held annually on the first Friday of June, the National Donut Day was first established by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938.

The potential third-round match-up with two-time Roland Garros champion Maria Sharapova was the first thing she spotted when she looked at the draw.

When Williams served out the victory with a backhand victor down the line, she raised both arms overhead and held up her left fist as she approached the net to meet Barty.

Considering the last time she was in a Grand Slam arena she walked off as the champion, albeit while pregnant at the 2017 Australian Open, her hunger for success can not be questioned.

The three-time French Open champion and 23-time Grand Slam victor will next take on Australia's Ash Barty in the second round. I want to play my game, regardless of who is on the other side.

"I feel like a warrior wearing it, a queen from Wakanda [referring to the Black Panther movie] maybe", she said. Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, Why do I feel so sad when I have a handsome baby?

Williams then trailed 0/3 before eventually taking the set when Pliskova, who had never won a match at the tournament in three previous visits, put a forehand wide.

"For so many years, I defined myself in just one way: by success, by championships, by making history", she told the magazine. She found her gear and what she needed to move through the match.
