Serena juggles business, motherhood before beating Bouchard

Serena Williams Last time I was here I was pregnant Tennis > Australian OpenVIDEO- Tennis news- Serena Williams Last time I was here I was pregnant

'I literally spent every day with her!' Tennis champion Serena Williams has discussed spending quality time with her daughter after US Open defeat.

As Yastremska defeated Carla Suarez Navarro in the previous fixture, she made it to the next stage, the Round of Last 32, where Williams is waiting for her to sort things out.

Halep looked to be cruising early on, but had a mid-match wobble as she dropped the second set to America's Sofia Kenin via a tiebreaker before eventually battling through to win 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 6-4. "I definitely want to always teach her love and teach her humans should always have love for each other no matter what color they are". Just like she brings her A-game on the court, her fashion statements are equally powerful.

Graf, who won four Australian Opens among her 22 titles, said Williams would nearly certainly go down as the greatest ever women's player, given today's standards are so much higher.

Williams was eight weeks pregnant when she captured her 23rd Grand Slam trophy at Melbourne in 2017 but missed opportunities to equal Australian Court on her return from maternity leave.

The 18-year-old Ukrainian is set to go up against Williams on Saturday in the third round match at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, where the annual sporting event is taking place. She's made it this far.

But watching her dominant second-round win over a player many believed could ride her recent success to an upset over Williams was a reminder of something else: how many Eugenie Bouchards have come and gone and come again during Williams' remarkable 20-year reign over this sport.

In a ruthless showing, Williams broke serve six times and cracked 20 winners - double that of Bouchard - but said it wasn't as easy as the score suggested.

"She has to be the favorite to win this tournament", Bouchard said.

She said, "I've been working really, really hard in the off-season to be incredibly fit and ready". Williams 37, who has never shied away from showcasing her frame, has been even more forceful post pregnancy. "I took a year off, still trying to get 12 months of playing under my belt". I was screaming the same time she was screaming.
