Serena Williams, who had not played since March, returned to both tennis and Grand Slam competition Tuesday, topping Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 in the French Open's first round. She played a poor service game in the middle of the set, and Barty won a break which she would not relinquish, winning the first set 6-3. I want to play my game, regardless of who is on the other side.
And it showed against Barty, after it had looked initially as if the American would be exiting at the second stage - something she has not done in a Slam since the 2014 tournament at Roland Garros. So you know, she's got a chance. And I don't want to get there, I want to get beyond there.
"It's how the cookie crumbles", Barty said, unfazed about the challenge and being diplomatic over Williams' non-seeding. "I'm going to be here, fighting my heart out".
But Thursday was a tougher proposition for the 36-year-old American who was playing just her sixth match of 2018.
She then gestured to her bicep and said, "This is me, and this is my weapon and machine".
Eventually, this looked a little bit like one of those Serena Williams comebacks of old, filled with top-notch strokes and full-throated screams of "Come on!"
