"I think everyone should have high expectations", said Williams, who will be unseeded at Indian Wells and open her campaign against 53rd-ranked Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan.

Multiple Grand Slam victor Serena Williams should be match fit and ready in time for the French Open in May, according to her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

The Williams sisters were the headline act at the eight-woman event at Madison Square Garden. But after an abusive relationship, depression, illness, and loss of self-esteem, despite forging a new career as a commentator, she again surprised the tennis world by announcing her intention to return to the pro tour.

"I don't need any more motivation, I have the best thing I could ever want". Venus told ESPN: "She's got power, depth". "She's going to bring that instinct on the court with her, so I don't think she's too anxious about that".

Serena won her first match against Marion Bartoli of France, the former Wimbledon champion who is ending a 4 1/2-year retirement, but lost 13-11 to Zhang in the semifinals.

However, they are 3-1 down going into the second leg of their Champions League, last 16 tie at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday. The Saturday operation repaired a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

Tennis icon and Grand Slam champion Serena Williams has opened up for the first time to talk about her return to the court, which she says has hit a snag after delivering her baby in September 1, 2017.

Yet with all respect to the fine 23-year-old player from the Ukraine, she was probably not the main attraction for the packed MSG.

But now, having played an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi in late December and a doubles rubber for the US Fed Cup team against the Netherlands last month, she says the time is right for her to return.

"She's one of the few players that has all the serves, in terms of slice, kick, flat", Lindsay Davenport said of Osaka at the draw ceremony.

She added it was "impossible" to say how long she would continue to play for.

She continued: 'I'm ready or I wouldn't be playing.

"I think she will be ready for Roland Garros". She wants to share there is no wrong way to be a woman.

Williams conceded she's sometimes surprised by how well she's playing when the new mother reminds herself she thought she "would have retired six years ago". If I'm not ready now I'm never going to be ready.

Williams last appeared in a Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open.
