"I was running and running and never got exhausted except for one point but then I got over it in 20 seconds, so I think that was really the highlight for me", WTA quoted Williams, as saying.

As per new rules, returning mothers who have a special ranking would get a seeded position and can be drawn as an "additional seed" at tournaments, meaning they would not have to face a seed in the opening round of a tournament.

Serena Williams had advocated for protection of women players who are returning from giving birth.

The 37-year-old said that the decision will benefit the women player as they will not have to wait until the twilight of their years to have children. I think we can only go up from here and that's our plan", Venus said after defeating the victor of 23 Grand Slam titles."It was really fun and so good to see everyone come out to support myself and Venus.

Under the WTA's new rules, which will take effect in 2019, a player's ranking freezes in the event of injury, illness or pregnancy.

"Having gone through the experience myself really opened my eyes".

Lions finish 6-10 after whipping Packers 31-0
The Lions had the game well in hand by then, with Zenner making it 21-0 following his touchdown run late in the second quarter. Per multiple sources, former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell has interviewed for the coaching vacancy in Green Bay .

"I think it's a great rule change". How I remember that and I don't remember other things, I don't know, that just happened last week.

"I love everyone that I work with, and I still love them, so it's just all love".

Thursday's exhibition match was Serena's first since she lost the US Open final to Naomi Osaka in September.

During a promotional event in Abu Dhabi, where she is expected to play an exhibition match, Serena said that it's a great rule. That match was overshadowed by her outburst at chair umpire Carlos Ramos, whom she called a "liar" and "thief".

Meanwhile, the goal of matching Margaret Court's 24 Grand Slam titles is one that she certainly has at the forefront of her mind. She is now ranked 16th and will be seeded for next month's Australian Open.
