Serena Williams Wins First French Open Match in Bold Comeback
In her first Grand Slam tournament since recovering from an emergency C-section and serious complications last year, Williams hit the red clay at Roland Garros looking like a superhero in a black Nike catsuit. “It’s a fun suit, but it’s also functional,” she explained, noting the compression fabric to prevent blood clots. Williams, 36, won her first match against 70th-ranked Kristyna Pliskova in straight sets. Meanwhile, the superstar’s unranked return has sparked debate about whether players deserve to have their rankings preserved during maternity leave.
