Maria Sharapova fires warning to French Open draw after surviving early scare

French Open Serena Williams Set For Grand Slam Return At Roland Garros

"I feel like a warrior wearing it, a queen from Wakanda [a reference to the Black Panther movie] maybe", she said.

According to BBC, speaking to reporters after her 7-6 (4), 6-4 victory over Kristyna Pliskova, Williams said the suit made her feel like a superhero.

Barty needed just 64 minutes to live up to her first-time seeding at Roland Garros, while also showing no signs of the back problem that had her in doubt for the clay-court major.

She gave birth on September 1, then dealt with complications related to a pulmonary embolism.

Serena Williams made a fashion statement as she returned to grand slam tennis in a black body suit. She said, "The truth is I miss my body, being able to do other kinds of fantastic things".

In addition to showing off her insanely fit physique, the full-length black bodysuit is created to help protect against blood cots and serve up (no pun intended) serious superhero vibes. "I'm always living in a fantasy world, I've always wanted to be a superhero and it's kind of my way of being a superhero". In 2016, Nadal withdrew with an injured left wrist after a pair of easy victories, then claimed every set he played past year en route to the trophy.

Daniel Ricciardo takes Monaco win despite engine problems
Meanwhile, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne will be starting 12th after being the sixth fastest in the initial runs. Neither man could match the Australian's pace on the hypersoft tyres, with Vettel 0.229 seconds slower.

For all that has changed during her time away from Grand Slam tennis, so much seemed familiar on Tuesday.

"I did everything possible with my team to get us in a position to be able to play today. It just kind of expands that, and I really, really embrace it".

"So it will be a really good, another good show for me". "Well, first and foremost, you have to get your core back, which is hard, because it literally spreads when you have a baby", said the 36-year-old, who is bidding to win a 24th major trophy to draw level with Margaret Court's all-time record.

An error-strewn game from Serena saw her broken at 3-3, but she broke right back and held to love consolidating at 5-3. Dads are too, but I actually breast fed for a really, really, really long time, and so I just had this real connection with my daughter.

Although the tennis star had a relatively smooth pregnancy - that included an Australian Open win - her daughter's birth wasn't without complications. That didn't stop her from crushing her competitor, who's now ranked at No. 70 in the world. "Yeah, so I think there are definitely some differences, but there is a lot of similarities, as well".

The singles victor between Barty and Williams will play either German 12th seed Julia Goerges or Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck on Saturday for a place in the last 16. "She's my priority, and I work everything around her".
