Serena all set for tennis return

Serena all set for tennis return

The 36-year-old makes her comeback to the WTA Tour this week, when he takes on Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first round at Indian Wells in California.

She'll play an exhibition match tonight at Madison Square Garden in NY, then compete at Indian Wells, California, in her first tour event in more than a year.

Elina Svitolina emerged victorious at the winner-takes-all Tie Break Tens event at Madison Square Gardens in NY.

Multiple Grand Slam victor Serena Williams should be match fit and ready in time for the French Open in May, according to her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

Former world number one Williams, who returned in 2012 from surgery for a life-threatening blood clot on her lung and climbed back to the top of the rankings, said she nearly died after giving birth to her daughter in September. She married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and gave birth to a baby girl, Alexis. But I keep going and I know that I might not be at my best yet but I'm getting there.

"I just can not bet against her".




Her coach since 2012, Frenchman Mouratoglou has been with Williams for 10 of those major wins, and he said he believes there are no limits to what she can achieve.

She added that she is motivated by the thought of playing long enough for her six-month-old daughter to have memories of watching her.

"Serena's target (for this year) will be to win grand slams", Mouratoglou said in an interview with wtatennis.com.

"There are three Grand Slams left this season". However, she asserts that she is committed to bounce back to the apex of her performance, in a matter of time. The victor of two tournaments already this year, she won the last seven points to break away from a 3-3 tie against Venus, then swept Vandeweghe 10-0. "It's always tough to transfer the work we do in the offseason, so this was a good sign that I'm moving the right way and I'm very, very happy that I played good tennis throughout the beginning of the year and just from here I can go only up".

"If that's the result, yeah, that would be great", she said.
