Baby talk: Serena’s return highlights challenges facing tennis-playing parents

French Open: Sharapova return sees her overcome wobble

After Williams beat Kristya Pliskova at the French open at Stade Roland Garros, Paris on Tuesday, she spoke about the meaning behind her black bodysuit.

"The customer is a girl or a woman who believes in herself, or wants to believe in herself; maybe she's feeling unconfident that day", Williams told WWD. She suffered complications at the time of the birth due to a pulmonary embolism.

The American was also asked whether her experience of being at a Grand Slam had changed since becoming a mother. She said, "The truth is I miss my body, being able to do other kinds of incredible things". And what a striking return it was, right down to the outfit - which called to mind the "catsuit" Williams wore at the 2002 US Open - and was paired with black high-top sneakers sprinkled with silver glitter.

"I'm always living in a fantasy world", Williams added. "Go Serena!" Williams said the suit was crucial for her health and well-being, claiming it prevented the return of blood clots which left her life in danger after she gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian in September. In 2016, Nadal withdrew with an injured left wrist after a pair of easy victories, then claimed every set he played a year ago en route to the trophy.

The crafty Barty, though, will try to drag the 23-times grand slam champion out of her comfort zone on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

"It's a fun suit, but it's also functional so I can be able to play without any problems". "I have given tennis so much, and tennis has actually given me a lot, and I couldn't be more grateful". That's hard. And just coming back from the physical part of having a baby, at my age, is never really easy.

Serena Williams is officially back!

But the legendary player will have one eye on a fourth French Open title, which also rely on her body holding up under the pressure of two weeks of tennis for the first time since her return.

Though she is back on the court, Williams said her emphasis is looking after her daughter: "No matter what, that's my priority".

Williams will place the No17 seed, Australia's Ashleigh Barty, in the second round.

She shared some inspiring words for her fans on social media and made it clear the win and the Nike catsuit were dedicated to the moms of the world. "Yeah, so I think there are definitely some differences, but there is a lot of similarities, as well".

On Tuesday, she noted that she showed up at her news conference more promptly than she used to, so she could have more time to spend with Olympia. "But she's my priority, and I work everything around her".

"I have been wearing trousers a lot when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going".
