"I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit", Williams said.
She then gestured to her bicep and said, "This is me, and this is my weapon and machine".
While many women feel a bit down, tearful or anxious in the first week after giving birth, symptoms that go on for longer are often a sign of postnatal depression. "I feel good and just so happy to be back here". And I want to do that again. "She's my priority, and I work everything around her".

In her post-match interview, Williams told the Tennis Channel that she's "not there yet" as far as her form on the court, and she sees many areas for improvement.
"I just said I got to be better, I got to fight harder", she told Tennis Channel after the match.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion admitted it wasn't always so easy to accept her strong physique, especially compared to her older sister Venus Williams, whom she followed on to the tennis court.

Clay does not suit her attacking game - she has never beaten a player inside the world's top 50 on the surface - but she moved Williams around the court expertly and patiently in the first set using her array of slices and spins.
When Williams served out the victory with a backhand victor down the line, she raised both arms.
But the grand slam colossus drew on her unrivalled fighting qualities - and energy reserves some doubted she still possessed at nearly 37 and eight months into motherhood - to stave off Australia's 17th seed after one hour and 46 minutes. The athlete was bed-ridden for six weeks and still managed to come back to the game a victor.
"I will be back tomorrow to play doubles with Venus".
VideoThe tennis career of Bernard Tomic has taken another freaky chapter, with the Aussie losing out to a player who drove more than ten hours to make the match. "And my friends are, like, 'What happened?' I'm like, 'There was no beer pong.' I was looking at Alexis like, wait a minute, did we miss something?" I have been wearing trousers in general a lot when I play so I can keep, you know, the blood circulation going. "I thought she was moving quite well". "I don't want to limit myself".
