Serena rallies over Barty to reach third round

2017 French Open- Day Thirteen

Williams is now training for Roland-Garros and Wimbledon, but has set her sights firmly on surpassing Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles, won between 1960 and 1973. And then, all of the sudden, my life changed forever.

In her official comeback to Grand Slam competition, the former World No.1 needed a tie break in the first set that stayed on serve all the way to the end.

The three-time champion fell 0-2 behind in the second set and was forced to retrieve another break to level at 4-4. "I've got to just try harder and Serena came out". "Olympia was born and she had my arms, and instead of being sad and fearful about what people would say about her, I was just so happy".

At 36, we do not have many more years of Serena Williams left, but she and her elder sister Venus are powerful role models for young women of all races, particularly those who want to be sportspersons.

"What I went through was terrible. It's such a great feeling".

Barty wrapped it up when the American netted a weary-looking forehand, the 12th unforced error of the set for the 23-time major victor. You can see how much she loves it. Might have startled Barty, too.

The 23-time major victor, who had not played on clay since 2016 after taking time away to have a baby, likened her outfit to something from Marvel's Black Panther and said the new look made her "feel like a super hero".

To make matters worse, Serena then developed blood clots in her lungs, causing her to cough, which ruptured her cesarean scar.

Czech world number 70 Pliskova questioned the legality of the Williams outfit when she talked with Czech media after the first round match. In the stands, Williams' coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, shook his fist. By the end, this was an incredibly encouraging performance in what was only her sixth singles match since giving birth.

"If I wasn't playing tennis, I'd be pregnant right now - sorry, I'm one of those women", she said. Serena has won 12 of her last 13 matches on clay court.

Next for Williams is a third-round match against 11th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany.

Serena Williams is officially back! Williams beat Kristyna Pliskova in the round of 128 on Tuesday.

Nadal, the 10-time champion, defeated Italian lucky loser Simone Bolelli 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (11/9).
