  • Martina Navratilova – I expect Serena to win Miami

Williams was acutely aware of the danger she was in after giving birth, as she had previously suffered a pulmonary embolism in 2011.

In November 2008, she commissioned her first school under the same name in Matooni, about 50km from the newer school. Diyas netted a forehand and Williams yelled, "Come on!" as the crowd cheered.

Mixing 27 unforced errors with 34 winners, it was far from easy for the unseeded Williams on the slow hardcourt in Indian Wells.

The 23-time major victor beat Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan 7-5, 6-3 in the first round Thursday night.

She says post-childbirth health complications - including blood clots in her lungs - were nearly fatal.

"Because of what I went through, it would be really hard if I didn't have the health care that I have ― and to imagine all the other women that do go through that without the same health care, without the same response, it's upsetting", she said.

Jackson said Gwala told him that the attackers sawed into his right calf (with a boring blade), damaging muscle, nerves and bone. Colleagues said the blade appeared to be too blunt and the men started on his second leg before stopping and running away.

Serena Williams wants to continue to make history.is thinking about bringing a Women's Tennis Association (WTA) tour to Kenya. She had break points in the first and fifth games but couldn't convert. Both were straight-set wins for Williams. She smiled as she walked to the net, and her family gave her a standing ovation. "We always have a couple tight sets".

"If it happens then I have a good example to follow". I'm just expecting to see where I am more than anything. The Williams sisters could meet in the third round. Older sister Venus watched from a balcony seat in an upper-level box on a 68-degree night in the Southern California desert.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion has not competed at a WTA Tour event since winning the Australian Open in January 2017 while seven weeks pregnant.

One of the greatest tennis players of all time - Martina Navratilova expects Serena Williams to be back to her peak form soon.

Ohanian recruited the help of AdQuick to pull off the billboard surprise for his wife which included four oversize photos of baby Alexis alongside the acronym G.M.O.A.T. The fourth billboard shows a photo of Williams and their daughter with the phrase "G.M.O.A.T" - greatest mother of all time - and is signed by Alexis Sr. and Jr.

News of Serena's possible visit to Kenya has elicited excitement and Tennis Kenya secretary Wanjiru Mbugua said it could not have come at a better time. Williams and her daughter are now faring well, but women on Twitter rallied together to highlight her experience is not uncommon for women, especially Black women.

Walmart expanding meal kits nationwide
The company also started offering meal-kit delivery late previous year , which is not related with the in-store meal kits.

Diyas and Williams had played each other twice before going into Thursday's match.

"I was in a really fortunate situation where I know my body well, and I am who I am, and I told the doctor: 'I don't feel right, something's wrong.' She immediately listened". "I think there's a lot of pre-judging, absolutely, that definitely goes on. I'm really happy about that".

Roger Federer, who is also participating in the tournament and is now ranked as the best male player, has also expressed his joy over Williams' return. The two-time victor of the desert tournament needed a wild card to get in because she has been off the tour since Wimbledon. Given she had not played a competitive singles match for 404 days, this was an impressive return.

In other first-round matches, CiCi Bellis overpowered qualifier Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-0, 6-3.

Serena, 36, will need to get through her first round match against 53rd ranked Zarina Diyas and the 29th-seeded Kiki Bertens.

Former Missouri star Aldon Smith arrested
She reported to a police dispatcher about 8:30 p.m. that Smith was beating her at her residence in the 600 block of Bush Street. Drafted seventh overall by the 49ers in 2011, Smith was a standout rookie, recording 37 tackles and 14 sacks.
