Catsuited Serena Williams wins on Roland Garros return
Serena Williams has made a successful start to her Roland Garros return, beating Kristyna Pliskova in her opening match.
Williams, causing a stir with her black and red superheroine style catsuit, was made to work for it by her Czech opponent but battled through to claim a hard-fought 7-6 6-4 win.
Williams, currently ranked 453 in the world is easing herself back into tennis after time away to start a family, and was visibly fatigued during the clash in Paris.
However, there was also more than a few flashes of the old quality too.
“I’ve trained really hard on clay and I feel good,” said Williams. “I’m just happy to have won a match here and I’m taking it one match at a time.”
