Paris - Serena Williams hit the headlines for her eye-catching, body-hugging black catsuit at the French Open, an outfit she described as "fun and functional", helping her prevent a return of the blood clots which put her life in danger after giving birth previous year.
Beyond that, Williams wanted her comeback to mean something to moms like her who are trying to get back in the game (literally and figuratively) after giving birth. And now the fashion-forward healthy-living mogul just launched a line of mood-boosting apparel created to help other women dress their way to confidence too.
"I remember one day, I couldn't find Olympia's bottle and I got so upset I started crying. because I wanted to be ideal for her". "Our woman is someone who looks at fashion as a compass to show who they are, to show what they are". I'm definitely here to compete and do the best that I can do. I've been wearing trousers a lot in general when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going.
"You know, emotionally I think it's different, because I'm so emotionally attached to my daughter".
Serena told the press after her match that she felt she was "on the right track" and singled out her serving as something she was pleased with from her opener against Pliskova.
"There has to be a very good balance between being aggressive and then being able to defend as well", Barty said of her clay-court tactics.
"I feel like everything else will fall into place. I really try to put her first in my life".
However, it was Williams who made the fewer errors and secured the most important break to take a 4-3 lead before she sealed victory in the 10th game. "And she said let's do it like that then".

In an Instagram following the match, Williams dedicated her first time back on the court to all the moms out there.
"I have given tennis so much, and tennis has actually given me a lot, and I couldn't be more grateful".
"They should follow the rules, otherwise play in the nude!"
And she got off to a fine start too as she won the first set tie-break against Pliskova 7-6.
"I've been injured so many times, and played on it, my body is used to adjusting".
She will now face Ashleigh Barty of Australia in the next round.
