Serena Williams: 'Doctors Aren't Listening' So Black Women Are Dying

Making her tennis comeback after becoming a mom for the first time Serena Williams beat Zarina Diyas in straight sets in the first round in Indian Wells

Fantastic news for Serena Williams - she's officially announced her return to tennis after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Jr in September.

Just six months after welcoming her first child with husband Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams has gone on the record to say that she "definitely" wants to have another child so that Alexis Olympia can have a tennis partner sibling. "If I want to play in those grand slams (the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open) and play well, I think now is the flawless time to start". "I don't get to play a lot in the States anymore".

"I think women deserve a little more equal play time on the centre courts outside of the marquee players", she told the BBC. "When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity".

Serena also admitted that her first five months of motherhood has been "amazing", as she says that being a parent comes "naturally" to her.

"We are very excited by the news and it is in line with the efforts we are making to promote the sport", she said. Williams, who has a long medical history with blood clots but had gone without her usual daily medication while giving birth, feared she was developing a pulmonary embolism - blood clots that block the lungs. I have this undying drive to be the best that I can be.

The athlete recently revealed on Instagram that she created a gold-plated "S" pin that stands for the athlete's name, as well as "Strength" and 'Sureness'.

Along with wearing the pin, she encouraged her fans to share the words that begin with "S" that means the most to them. "What would your "S" mean?" In the Round of 128 of the Indian Wells competition, Serena will go up against 24-year-old Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan. "Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin".

In conjunction with her sister Venus, Serena has also developed an organisation to help the victims of what she describes as "senseless violence". "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"
