Serena has not played a match since winning the 2017 Australian Open (while pregnant) and gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr on September 1 (during the U.S. Open!) and married Alexis Ohanian, Sr in a celebrity-studded event in New Orleans on November 16.
Serena will be playing her first public match as a married mother this Saturday December 30th. She will face the 2017 French Open champion. Serena is expected to defend her Australian Ope title next month.
Welcome back to tennis, Serena!
