Serena Williams says she frequently wondered how she would keep going after returning to the practice courts following the birth of her first child.
Williams last played a competitive match 14 months ago at the 2017 Australian Open, when she beat her sister Venus in straight sets to win an Open-era record 23 Grand Slam singles title.
Serena Williams is gunning for Roland Garros, her coach has warned, as the dominant force in women's tennis over the past decade targets a comeback following the birth of her daughter.
Bartoli, who was forced to pull out of an exhibition event at Wimbledon past year because of a mystery virus and dramatic weight loss, has said she was targeting a return to the WTA Tour at the Miami Open later this month. "It takes a lot of work and I'm going to keep on going and working at it, and I encourage others to use their voice and their platforms to do that same", Williams shared.

I always love watching the women's game, but I've never really looked to Serena as wanting to eclipse her in anything.
I think everyone should have high expectations. Monday's event, which featured eight players facing off in 10-point "super tie breaks" as they vied for a $250,000 winner's prize, was a chance to sharpen her skills.
Williams, who is unranked as she has spent more than 12 months away from the tour, has been drawn to play Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan in the first round in Indian Wells.

Azarenka hasn't been able to compete since Wimbledon because of the custody dispute over her son, but, as the 2012 and 2016 Indian Wells champion, she can't be counted out.
