Serena Williams set for first-round match at Indian Wells

For it was at the first all-woman playing of the Tie Break Tens event that the greatest player of her generation, Serena Williams, had chosen to make her preparatory appearance for her return to the WTA tour in Indian Wells.

If Williams wins, she is likely to face the No29 seed Kiki Bertens, and if all goes well and Williams makes the third round, she could meet the No8 seed, her sister Venus.

'I've always wanted to be a mom but I never seemed to have time with my career, ' she said. It's been fun [getting back to work], I've been having so much fun being a mom, and having time off is good too... Williams has beaten Diyas both times they've met, including at Indian Wells in 2015.

Previous year she would only be allowed to play two tournaments, the Mallorca Open where she through to the second round, the first event back from giving birth and then Wimbledon came and she lost in the quarterfinals to Simona Halep. March 8, which is also International Women's Day, will mark Williams' return to tennis since giving birth. "So I created my Serena Gold toned "S" pin".

The exhibition raised money for the Yetunde Price Resource Center and Sophie's Voice. "What is one S word in your life that means something to you?" "Mine [are] Strong and Sure!"

"Every time I step onto the court, it feels like a homecoming", the caption reads. "Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin". She ends her post with "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!" The remainder of the field included Elina Svitolina of the Ukraine, the highest-ranked player at No. 4; American CoCo Vandeweghe; China's Zhang Shuai; Sorana Cirstea of Romania; Marion Bartoli of France, the 2013 Wimbledon champion who is ending a 4 +-year retirement; and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who retired last year.
