“I honestly feel better than I thought I was going to feel,” she told reporters. “I feel like I’m on the right track for me.”


She also made sure to have some fun with her daughter, taking a selfie video showing the baby on the sidelines.

The match also marked Serena’s first since the Australian Open last year, which she won…while pregnant.

She won’t be playing in the tournament this year, announcing her withdrawal last month.

“After performing in my first match after giving birth I realized that although I am super close I’m not where I personally want to be,” Williams wrote in a statement posted to her Snapchat. “My coach and team always said ‘Only go to tournaments when you are prepared to go all the way.’ With that being said I am disappointed to say I’ve decided not to compete in the Australian Open this year.”

Serena’s note concluded, “However, the memory of last year’s Open is one that I will carry with me and Olympia and I look forward to coming back again. I appreciate the support and understanding of my fans and everyone at the Australian Open.”
