WATCH: Serena Williams back at Roland Garros and looking strong in practice

Serena Williams in action

Serena Williams, by her own admission, has not played as much tennis as she would have liked of late, but she is back and looking strong as she took to the clay of Roland Garros on Monday.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner has struggled with injury so far this year, and pulled out of a clash with sister Venus Williams at the Italian Open last week

However, there was no signs of any injury as she hit some groundstrokes ahead of the French Open next week.

Not only did she have to quit the Italian Open with injury, but also both Indian Wells (virus) and the Miami Open (knee).

Speaking about her decision to withdraw in Rome last week, Serena said: “I must withdraw from the Italian Open due to pain in my left knee.

“I will miss the fans and competition at one of my favorite tournaments. I’ll be concentrating on rehab and look forward to seeing you all at the French Open and next year in Rome.”
