"I'm just happy to win a match here, " Williams told the crowd in Court Philippe Chatrier.

Speaking to Harper's, Williams admitted that the ordeal "was hard" for her. The 36-year-old has banked over $84 million in career earnings, has an extraordinary overall winning ratio of 85.6%, and is a 23-time Grand Slam champion. "It's a bit hard to avoid", Barty said after booking the second-round blockbuster with a thumping 6-3 6-1 victory over Russian Natalia Vikhlyantseva. After all, it's never easy for a new mother to return to any sport.

Serena was immediately given a tough-but not impossible-draw.

"How are [sic] non of the french channels showing Serena play right now??" Yet body-shamers still try to come for her and the muscles that made her a world-known athlete.

"When push came to shove, the real Serena came out", Barty said after the the 23-times grand slam victor set up a third-round date with German 11th seed Julia Goerges.

Ahead of the vote, Rajoy, 63, told the parliament that it had "been an honor to leave Spain better than I found it. He says the corruption accusations concern only a tiny number of politicians and no current members of government.

Sharapova was staring down the barrel of falling at first hurdle in a Grand Slam tournament for the first time since the 2010 Australian Open when trailing 3-0 in the third, but the former world number one dug deep and reeled off six straight games to edge into round two. She can look sluggish and completely off her game and then flip a switch to turn it around.

Ashleigh Barty's fearless bid to cut short Serena Williams' grand slam comeback has ended in a tense three-set French Open defeat for the Australian No.1.

The three-time French Open champion broke again early in the third set, and held on for the rest of the match.

"It felt really good", said Australia's 17th seed. Williams was not as consistent as in the past, but that's somewhat to be expected.

Just after the hour mark, the three-time French Open champion levelled the match with an ace.

Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit believes the club would swap their FA Cup trophy for a place in next season's Champions League .

The 22-year-old Australian took a break from tennis in 2014, started playing cricket and became good enough to play a season in the women's Big Bash League.

"It's not like you decide to take a year off".

Serena Williams says the catsuit alleviates the severe health problems she suffered after giving birth. "What she's done to be able to get back, along with Vika (Azarenka) as well, and a lot of the other girls who are coming back after pregnancy, is a pretty unbelievable thing". But her level when she's not quite on her best (form) is still bloody good. One thing is for sure, though.

Wozniacki, who beat Danielle Collins in straight sets yesterday to book her place in the second round, can not meet any earlier than the final thanks to the draw, meaning the Dane is unlikely to be looking for tactical tips.
