Serena makes return in a losing encounter

Serena makes return in a losing encounter

Serena Williams played in her first competitive tennis match in a year as she teamed up with her elder sister Venus Williams in the doubles match against the Netherlands in a World Group first round clash at the Fed Cup on Sunday. "I've been training and it was just exciting to be out there", Serena said after the match.

It was Serena's first competitive match since winning her 23rd major at the 2017 Australian Open. I feel like I'm on the right track.' She also added, 'I really don't know. 3 more than her mum Serena. Maybe that's why I felt like I did better. The Czechs, who have won the Fed Cup 10 times, will travel to Germany for the semi-finals in April. Both were in attendance over the weekend, seated just behind the players' box.

"I didn't manage my time well", she said. Alexis Olympia was courtside as her mother and aunt played in a dead-rubber doubles contest against Holland on Sunday.

"It was extremely extraordinary to be out here with Venus and we're so upbeat Team USA won today", Williams said after the match.

"Serena's gonna be joining her sister Venus!" she announced, to roars of approval before Williams appeared dressed in a white top, dark blue shorts topped off with a red headband.

They have enjoyed enormous support from a sold-out 5,200 -strong crowd in the mountainous city of Asheville, North Carolina, famous for its historic architecture, breweries and vibrant art scene.Venus' participation meant there was no room for Lauren Davis, the US' fourth player. After delivering Alexis Olympia via C-section, Williams suffered from life-threatening complications when blood clots formed in her lungs and severe coughing reopened her C-section wound.

Ohanian was a doting father, carrying their 5-month-old bundle of joy during the match. "I'm always going to have the best and highest expectations for myself".

But shortly after, the owner on an Open-era record 23 grand slam singles titles drew wild cheers when she confidently stepped to the net and stretched out to drive home a superb backhand volley.
