French Open: Sharapova return sees her overcome wobble

Serena Williams of US celebrates her first round victory during Day Three of the 2018 French Open at Roland Garros on May 29, 2018 in Paris, France.

Williams conceded she was unable to fully gauge her level in her first major championship outing in 16 months against the big-serving Czech, such was the soaring ace tally and lack of extended rallies in their first-round tussle.

Then, perhaps questioning her own words as she heard them, she paused, before adding with a laugh: "I think deep down, we all know the answer to that".

"I remember one day, I couldn't find Olympia's bottle and I got so upset I started crying. because I wanted to be flawless for her". So the suit has definitely a little functionality to it.

It was by far the most significant event of Day 3 at Roland Garros, even though there were so many other Grand Slam champions in action. Rafael Nadal finished off a rain-interrupted victory as he begins his try for a record-extending 11th French Open title. She said, "Winning's always been the way I define myself and I want it to stay that way for a long time".

The suit is, however, not only fun but also functional.

And she got off to a fine start too as she won the first set tie-break against Pliskova 7-6.

Knowing Liverpool as a club, the people I had spoken to about Liverpool also, I knew Liverpool belongs to the Champions League. Ronaldo is looking to join an esteemed group of 10 players to win five European Cups by scoring in his fourth separate final.

"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.

While dresses or skirts are generally the go-to look for female tennis players, some users have noted that Williams is not the first to break the norm - American Anne White donned a white bodysuit at Wimbledon in 1985; Williams herself at least practiced in one in 2011. I think that's what this represents. So I was just winging it in the last minute.

Serena Williams and her new husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian with their baby daughter. And it's good for her, because it's hard for her to play with better players and everybody needs to be challenged as much as possible to improve.

"They're surprised. They don't expect a woman to play like that, that's what they tell me all the time", said Mouratoglou.

Williams, who has been out for more than a year after discovering she was pregnant just before the 2017 Australian Open. It's really fun. Although we designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.

Next up for the three-times champion is Australian 17th seed Ashleigh Barty.

'I definitely feel like it is an opportunity for me to inspire a whole different group of unbelievable women and kids.
