It’s official. My comeback is here. This Thursday I will start playing tennis again professionally for the first time since giving birth to my daughter. This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida- both my home states. Thursday, the day I play my very first match, marks international women’s day. My comeback could not have come on a better day and I decided I wanted to do something different let you all be apart of my long journey back (if you want of course!!) So I created my Serena Gold toned “S” pin. When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity which supports the Yetunde Price Resource center. I want this gold “S” mean something special to you personally. What is one S word in your life that means something to you? Mine is Strong and Sure! So when I wear my “S” pin I am representing Strength, and Sureness. What would your “S” mean? They are for now only available for my fans that come see my at Indian wells, and Miami starting Wednesday as well as Thursday when I play!! Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a “S” pin. Post pics of you wearing your “S” and tag me! Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!!

She skipped the two high-level tournaments in the Middle East in February, and decided to launch her comeback in Indian Wells, where she’s playing as an unseeded player for the first time in many years. It feels like a lot of stuff has aligned for Serena: she’s got new endorsements, the baby recently turned six months old, her family is close by, and I just think she’s ready, emotionally and mentally, to get back to competing. But as it turns out, she’s also thinking about having another baby.
Serena Williams is already thinking about expanding her family! ET’s Kevin Frazier caught up with the 36-year-old tennis pro at the 14th Annual Desert Smash Celebrity Tennis Event in La Quinta, California, on Tuesday, where she opened up about motherhood and her marriage to Alexis Ohanian.
“It’s been amazing,” said Williams, who gave birth to her and her husband’s first child, baby girl Alexis Olympia, last September. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom but I never seemed to have time with my career. Then, it …read more
