Serena Williams set for 1st-round match at Indian Wells

Serena Williams stars in Oscars ad'There's no wrong way to be a woman

Williams says she's "ready" to return but admitted she won't immediately be at her best but will improve given time.

"I've never been the right kind of woman", Williams says during the commercial. "There have been so many days, even still, when I'm like, 'how am I going to keep going?' It's been really, really hard but I keep going and I know that I might not be at my best yet, but I'm getting there and every day is a new day and every day I should be getting better".

She'll play an exhibition match Monday night at Madison Square Garden in NY, then compete at Indian Wells, California, in her first tour event in more than a year. The 36-year-old suffered a pulmonary embolism after her daughter was delivered by caesarean section.

Serena Williams won the 2017 Australian Open.

"The women's game has records in there that are just beyond, like Martina Navratilova, Serena, you name it, or Steffi Graf for that matter, the Golden Slam", Federer said. We all know what Serena is capable of when in good form, but the time away from the sport and the fact she's now approaching 37 years old makes you wonder just how effective she can be at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if she wins [at Indian Wells], impressed yes, but not surprised.

UN Nuclear Watchdog: Iran-Accord Failure Would Be 'Great Loss'
Despite their differences, Iran has welcomed French efforts to re-engage economically and politically with the Islamic republic. Ahead of his visit, Le Drian said Iran should address "concerns" over its ballistic missile program or risk new sanctions.

The Frenchman believes there are no limits with the victor of 23 majors, who has not contested a rankings match since winning last year's Australian Open. It's going to take time, and her exhibition play has shown that.

Her career winning percentage (90 percent) is better than top-ranked Roger Federer (82 percent).

The WTA Tour is an elite professional tennis circuit organised by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). "I wish I would have made a few more shots". She knows how to play. She's got the big serve. "The competitions she will play until then will help her and every day she progresses on her fitness".

The birth of Williams' daughter, Alexis Olympia, was followed by complications that scuppered the player's plans to defend her title in Melbourne this year. He recently bought four billboards along the highway to Indian Wells that say "Greatest Momma Of All Time".

"She is known for her comebacks, the last of which took place in 2012", he said. "That gives her more motivation, more incentive and she always comes out the victor". There are three grand slams left this season.
