Serena Williams wins her opener in return to French Open

"She will wear this outfit for her second match", said a spokeswoman for manufacturer Nike on Thursday.

The 36-year-old defeated Czech Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 in her first grand slam match since becoming a mom, but it was her eye-catching black catsuit that had tongues wagging.

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.

Pliskova also broke to tie the game at 3-3. And I don't want to get there. She returned in 2016 and has looked revitalised by her break, working her way up the rankings.

There's no denying that Serena Williams is the G.O.A.T.

However, it was Williams who made the fewer errors and secured the most important break to take a 4-3 lead before she sealed victory in the 10th game.

Alongside her sister Venus, Serena will take to the doubles court on Friday against Kirsten Flipkins and Sara Errani.

Last week, BJP President Amit Shah had said that a plan is being worked upon to check petrol prices in the country. Across all forecourts, the average was even higher with prices rising by almost 8.5p a litre.

At this point, it is a well known fact that Serena's husband and father of her daughter is just the sweetest, most loving and most supportive man ever!

However, her game failed to match her impressive outfit in the first set where she was broken in the sixth game by the Australian.

"So that's why it makes it even more impressive when they make a comeback, and especially Serena after all she has done", added the Serb, one of a dozen fathers to have claimed Grand Slam titles since 1980.

Queensland's Barty and grand slam titan Williams, contesting her first tournament since childbirth a year ago, will square off for a place in the third round. "Australia is really hot, some days can be over [104 degrees fahrenheit], which is insane, but she never complained", she remembers.

Williams, the 2002, 2013 and 2015 champion in Paris, was on Tuesday playing a claycourt match for the first time since she finished runner-up to Garbine Muguruza in the 2016 final in Paris.

"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of... queen from Wakanda maybe", she joked. Then I spend all this time with Olympia. Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, Why do I feel so sad when I have a lovely baby?

A fifth ace of the contest won her the set.
