Serena Williams reveals plans for baby number 2

GETTYRafael Nadal is bidding to win his 11th French Open title

Serena Williams considers the black bodysuit she wore at the French Open much more than a fashion statement.

Not only did she win her first Grand Slam match against Czech Republic's Kristyna Pliskova in a 7-6, 6-4 first-round victory, but she did so as an unseeded player-she is now ranked 451st in the world-and was up against one of the highest ranking players in the French Open.

The 36-year-old American said the suit was inspired by the Black Panther movie blockbuster and made her feel like a "super hero".

"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of... queen from Wakanda maybe", she joked. "It's such a great feeling", she added. She said, "Winning's always been the way I define myself and I want it to stay that way for a long time". Serena won 82 percent of her total service points despite struggling with her second serve, and she had just 25 unforced errors.

"I don't really think so", said Kvitova who was off the tour for six months previous year after suffering knife wounds fighting off a burglar at her home in the Czech Republic.

"So it is definitely a little functionality to it".

"I'm concerned how that's going to work out for me, because normally in Grand Slams I do spend a lot of time at the site".

"I did everything possible with my team to get us in a position to be able to play today".

In September 2017, Williams gave birth to her daughter, Alexia Olympia Ohanian Jr with husband Alexis Ohanian.

As you can guess from her cricketing exploits, Barty is a natural ballplayer with wonderful hands.

Police say Weinman forcibly struck the officer in the torso where the body camera was mounted and caused the camera to turn off. The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office, Professional Standards Unit will assist in the investigation.

Being a tennis-playing mother is also radically different from being a tennis-playing dad on the tour.

"First and foremost, you have to get your core back, which is hard, because it literally spreads when you have a baby".

"That's hard. And just coming back from the physical impact of having a baby, at my age is never easy".

"It's been a few years now and I think I'll have to use those experiences, both the good and the bad from that match", she said.

Williams destroyed Barty for the loss of just three games in their only previous encounter, in the first round of the 2014 Australian Open.

"I felt like in the first set I didn't play bad".

Canadian teen Denis Shapovalov's first Grand Slam match as a seeded player went about as smoothly as could be.

The only consolation for Pliskova, the twin sister of world number six Karolina, was finishing with 15 aces, the most hit against Williams since such records began to be kept in 2008.

Despite her new responsibilities, Williams has not abandoned the disciplined lifestyle she had led before.

"However, my outfit is actually functional for me, because I had a lot of health issues". "I've only been around girls my whole life".
