Serena Williams partakes in dance off, has new message for fans

"It's official. My comeback is here", she wrote in the caption.

"I've never been the right kind of woman", she says in a voice-over for the advert.

Maybe on clay [because] it's her weakest surface.

Williams has made fleeting appearances since she won in Melbourne 14 months ago while seven weeks pregnant: an exhibition match in Dubai in December and a doubles match for the United States Fed Cup team against the Netherlands last month.

Azarenka - who gave birth to a baby boy in December 2016 - said she can't wait for her son to meet Alexis Olympia. I don t know what kind of shape she is in and if she was practising or not practising. I wouldn't be surprised if she wins [at Indian Wells], impressed yes, but not surprised. "Obviously I m going to have a few hiccups, I would imagine, and I m ready for that". She ultimately chose to withdraw from the competition, but she is now a guarantee for Thursday's events.

But the tennis superstar insists that it can be hard being a working mother, especially when her husband Alexis - who is the co-founder of website Reddit - is also often busy. "Mentally you can take those breaks and really just concentrate on the big tournaments".

"I might not be at my best yet".

"She is one of the best players so it is good that she is back, especially after being a mom". For sure she is going to be a little bit nervous.

"Because of what I went through, it would be really hard if I didn't have the health care that I have ― and to imagine all the other women that do go through that without the same health care, without the same response, it's upsetting", she said.

Serena s first match in Indian Wells will be Thursday night against Diyas, the 24-year-old world number 53 from Kazakhstan. Her other titles came in 1999 and 2001 before she boycotted the event for several years. In a recent interview with the BBC, she shared some startling statistics that indicate that black women are three times more likely to die from childbirth complications in the US than white women.
