Serena Williams: 'If I'm not ready now, I never will be'

Mandy Minella and husband coach Tim Sommer welcomed their daughter in October
Serena Williams has revealed preparing for her return to tennis following the birth of her first child has been hard and that she still has doubts about how she can "keep going".
Williams is determined to stage her resurgence to the game, though she concedes that navigating her path once more after parental duties befell her is not easy. It's going to take time for Serena to get her feet under her, and I advise anyone looking to bet on her to be patient. The American won her first match in NY 10-5 against Marion Bartoli, herself only recently back in tennis after four years out following an initial retirement after her 2013 Wimbledon victory.
Williams was acutely aware of the danger she was in after giving birth, as she had previously suffered a pulmonary embolism in 2011.
The only mother to have won the Wimbledon singles title since World War One was Australia's Evonne Cawley (nee Goolagong) in 1980.
Evert knows a bit about records.
Williams did not play in the Australian Open this January, not because she was not necessarily fit but just for her doubts, following concerns over her ability to make an impact in Melbourne like she ordinarily would.
"She takes full advantage of it, she does it better than anybody".
Her career winning percentage (90 percent) is better than top-ranked Roger Federer (82 percent).
The 36-year old was speaking just ahead of her Women's Tennis Association tour, which is set to begin this week. The competitions she will play until then will help her and every day she progresses on her fitness. She's got the big serve. He recently bought four billboards along the highway to Indian Wells that say "Greatest Momma Of All Time".
"It was good", she said of the experience.
"As we approach International Women's Day, Nike wanted to recognize and celebrate the contributions and achievements of women everywhere and share our belief in gender equality, in this case, delivered by Serena Williams, the greatest athlete of all time", the sportswear giant added. "That gives her more motivation, more incentive and she always comes out the victor". Venus reached two Grand Slam finals in 2017 and returned to the top five of the rankings.
Evert says she disagrees with Court's opinions and believes in freedom of speech. "But she knows she will have to go step by step, it is a long way".
The former Wimbledon champion announced her retirement from tennis in 2013 following which she was diagnosed with a rare virus. Madison Keys, who reached the U.S. Open final previous year, and Lauren Davis, who had triple-match point on top-ranked Simona Halep at the Australian Open, came through her academy. "That's a wonderful goal". "Yet I consider myself fortunate". It's all about timing and finesse with him. "I didn't have to think too long", he said. "He shows his emotion. that's why people love him so much". The tennis star is looking to amp her G.O.A.T. status with her latest venture to bring a professional tennis tournament to the African continent for the first time. But this year, three of the WTA's biggest names-Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka-are all unseeded.
