"Wimbledon, that would be her best shot because that favors power, rewards power and the rallies aren't long", Evert said, as quoted by Tennis World USA.

She'll play an exhibition match on Monday night at Madison Square Garden in NY, then compete at Indian Wells, California, to get back into proper shape before the French Open.

Serena won her first match but lost in the semifinals.

The competition was won by Ukraine's Elina Svitolina, who beat Shuai Zhang of China 10-3 in the final.

Serena Williams is ready to tackle the "biggest challenge of her career", according to coach Patrick Mouratoglou, as she prepares to return to the WTA Tour at the Indian Wells Masters.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor will face Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first night match (10 p.m. ET).

Comcast attempts to outbid Fox for Sky
The UK government may also be looking for a way to defuse the political risks from the Fox bid, they added. Sky shares jumped by a fifth on Tuesday morning and now trade nearly 7 percent above Comcast's bid.

The last time Williams set foot on the court for a competitive tour match was January 2017, where she completed a successful Australian Open campaign in Melbourne to net her 23rd Grand Slam title. That ad, which followed a performance of "This Is Me", features Serena Williams spreading the message that "there's no wrong way to be a woman". She said she was having fun playing again and was excited for the future.

"She knows that coming back might take some time, but her level of expectation is high as always. If I want to play in those grand slams (the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open) and play well, I think now is the flawless time to start".

Venus already knows what to expect.

The 36-year-old, who gave birth to her daughter in September, is one of the greatest to have played the game and her 23 major titles is a record for a female player in the Open Era.

"I want my daughter to be truthful and honest, strong and powerful; to realize that she can impact those around her".
