  • French Open: Sharapova return sees her overcome wobble

Williams, 36, is playing in the tournament unseeded, due to her ranking of 453 before the tournament. But Williams seems to be eyeing the chance to break the world record of 24 Grand Slam wins now held by the Australian tennis star, Margaret Court.

In an opinion piece for CNN in February, the former world No.1 described how she nearly died while giving birth to her daughter, Olympia. I think probably in certain ways, yes, and I agree with those arguments; and then also I agree with arguments where it's no.

On the final episode of Being Serena, Serena Williams struggled physically after returning to full time tennis training.

Serena Williams just made a triumphant return back to the tennis court after winning her first Grand Slam match since giving birth to her daughter at the French Open yesterday.

In the early numbers that's up 7% over last year's Game 1 between the winning Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators. With his co-star, Chris Paul , sidelined, Houston relied on Harden to create offense, but his shots weren't falling.

Should she win at Roland Garros, it would be her 24th Grand Slam singles title. Serena has won 12 of her last 13 matches on clay court.

But it also has the added advantage of making Williams feel like a superhero from "Black Panther". That broke a tie with Steffi Graf for the most in the Open era. It helped that she showed her usual nerves of steel even at moments that could be potentially challenging.

Sharapova looked in complete control against Richel Hogenkamp, leading by a set and a break, but soon found herself 3-0 down in dramatic fashion in the decider. This was the moment the momentum could change, but that is when Serena mounted the comeback and took the tiebreak 7-4. Any progress is good progress for the former No. 1 player in the world.

She is. And more accurately, "The Mother is Back".

Indiana teacher who stopped shooting: ‘I had to save students’
While Seaman was shot three times, he managed to tackle and disarm the shooter to save his students from further harm. On Friday, a male student reportedly brought two handguns into Noblesville West Middle School and started firing .

Pliskova assumed early control with a break in the second set, but Williams refused to be dictated to and fought back. This was once again an opening for the world No 70, but the hardened warrior in Serena prevailed again as she started raining down her aggressive groundstroke.

Williams then took another break to work on her game, and that absence of more than two months ended Tuesday. It was probably that moment when the nervous-looking twin of 6th seed Karolina chose to go for all-or-nothing.

In order to get into shape, Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou told her, "There is no miracle".

In contrast, the service game of both players dipped markedly in the second set, with points won on the first serve falling by an average of 27%. She watches every single tennis match she possibly can, scheduling her limited vacation times around tournaments just to be able to watch every match.
