Serena Williams says she feels like a Queen from Wakanda in catsuit

French Open: Sharapova return sees her overcome wobble

"Kristyna played really, really well", said Williams to the crowd in Court Philippe Chatrier "I don't know how many aces I saw during the match".

Tuesday's return was striking, from Williams' powerful shots to her outfit, which called to mind the "catsuit" she wore at the 2002 U.S. Open.

Behind the jokes, there is also a more serious reason for the choice of skin-tight bodysuit outfit for the American, who only had first child, a daughter, last September. Taking the court for her first major tournament since giving birth to her daughter in September, the 2017 Australian Open title victor claimed a 7-6, 6-4 first-round victory over the Czech Republic's Kristyna Pliskova on Tuesday.

"I had a lot of problems with my blood clots", she said. Sharapova managed to turn things around, and Hogenkamp angrily tossed her racket at the red clay after Sharapova resisted pressure on her serve in the sixth game, saving two break points.

Williams - who has modeled in fashion shows for designer pals and had a line with HSN prior to this one - had to majorly multi-task a year ago in order to pull off this line launch: Olympia was born in September, she got married in November and she's been working hard to return to tennis.

With the exception of a troll who dared suggest that Williams - who has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles - should "slim down" by introducing more cardio and diet into her routine, jaws were, in the words of one commenter, dropped. "It was a wonderful experience and it just kind of helped me get everything going and get my competition and competitive juices flowing", said Serena.

Serena Williams has experienced both racism and sexism in her career.

Williams dispatched rival Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic 7-6 (4), 6-4 at Roland Garros.

Notley slams B.C. premier on Trans Mountain pipeline
Alberta sees the pipeline as key to moving bitumen from the province to the coast and from there to lucrative overseas markets. Notley noted that B.C. would be able to source oil and gas from Washington, but it would drive up prices for consumers.

"I don't know [about winning the title]".

"I'm always living in a fantasy world", she added. If I can do it, so can you. It definitely has little functionality to it.

"She played really well", said Williams after the match. 'She played really well; she made a lot of aces (15).

"You don't have to put her back at number one because she left at number one but try to figure out some sort of happy medium where it's fair for all".

"We designed it way before the movie", she said, "but still, it kind of reminds me of that".

It all has to begin with the first win though. One is that the tightness of the trousers helps her blood circulation.

Williams next will face Australian Ashleigh Barty, who is the 17th seed. The World No. 1 had been two sets up but 0-3 down in the third when rain caused the tie to be suspended late Monday.
