Serena returns with slam record firmly in sights

Williams has not played on the tour since winning the Australian Open in January 2017, which brought her within one of tying Court for the most Grand Slams all time.

Williams, a victor of 23 grand slams - a record in the Open Era - is set to be back in a WTA tournament for the first time in over a year at Indian Wells, as she bids to build up her playing time ahead of the French Open and Wimbledon. "I have the best thing I could ever want right now", Williams said of her daughter with husband Alexis Ohanian, the 34-year-old founder of Reddit. She expects the 23-time victor to add to her tally at Wimbledon because the grass court best suits her style of play.

"It's been really, really hard", said Serena. "I still feel like I am going to get better every day and in two months I will be way better than I am now and you have to start somewhere". As long as I am moving forward even if it is at a turtle's pace.

Serena Williams said on Monday that she has "high expectations" as she warmed up for her return to the WTA Tour at the Tie Break Tens at Madison Square Garden.

"This is a good sign for me, now I'm ready for the future". I can't go and say, "I expect to lose", because that's just something I'll never say. "I think we can say without a doubt that this is her biggest challenge".

Williams, a victor of 23 Grand Slam titles, is in the same quarter of the draw as older sister Venus.

The American is due to compete at Indian Wells where she takes on Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan, ranked 53 in the world, on Thursday. The competitions she will play until then will help her and every day she progresses on her fitness. It's just a little different.

"It was good", the 36-year-old Williams said of the experience.

"I would love for my daughter to be around with me doing great, and playing awesome, so that definitely gives me some motivation". "I definitely think Serena will be [in contention to win again], maybe not the first one or two tournaments but by the time the French Open and Wimbledon come around for sure", Seles said. I wouldn't be surprised if she wins [at Indian Wells], impressed yes, but not surprised.
