Serena ready for comeback at Fed Cup

Serena all ready for Fed cup

The last time fans got to see the 36-year-old tennis legend in action was when she won the women's singles at the 2017 Australian Open over a year ago - while eight weeks pregnant.

Because the USA already has clinched, Sunday's second scheduled singles match won't be played. "I wanted things to be really top-notch really early, and I think that definitely hurt me at the start, trying too hard, trying to place it and be so flawless", Vandewegh said. "It was a good game from both of us but I wasn't so nervous as yesterday".

The form of the volatile talent Kristina Mladenovic could play a key role in France's fortunes in their home match at La-Roche-sur-Yon against a strong Belgian team that includes Australian Open semi-finalist Elise Mertens.

According to yesterday's draw, Williams will link up with Lauren Davis to take on Dutch duo Lesley Kerkhove and Demi Schuurs in the final match of the World Group first-round clash in North Carolina.

Although Williams isn't scheduled to play any singles matches this weekend, that could change. Serena' 23 Grand Slam singles titles put her one behind the record held by Margaret Court.

She added: "Right now I'm focused on this weekend and after that I'll figure out what it might be".

Overtaking Court remains a goal for Williams, who would like to go even further than 25 grand slams.

Venus Williams has been impressed with her younger sister's parenting skills. "She's wonderful. She does everything herself". "But she's definitely remained just very youthful and childlike at heart".

"I thought maybe a few of my balls were flying a little bit", Williams said.

Serena Williams acknowledged there have been "a lot of ups and downs" in her comeback as she mentioned "fighting against all odds to be out there and to be competing again". Williams had told Vogue magazine that she developed several small blood clots in her lungs after her daughter was born.

U.S. captain Kathy Rinaldi said she expects Williams to make a smooth transition in her return to competitive tennis.
