Her press conference cut off abruptly, and the subject of whether this could be her Open swan song never came up. First of all, she's a mom.

Serena said the wardrobe was to promote circulation as she's suffered two blood clots/pulmonary embolisms, including last September after giving birth to a baby daughter, Alexis Olympia. "It's just new and it's fresh".

"It's very hard to describe". I think that it'll be fun. There's a lot of mental work, as well, to show me what it takes to compete for grand slams, to win grand slams.

"I feel like I have to be nice to myself", Williams said.

Williams played only two events in the build-up to her home Slam. She could play sister Venus in the third round.

For the first time since Wimbledon in June 2017, a tournament will have the entire Big Four in the men's field: five-time U.S. Open champion Roger Federer, defending champ Rafael Nadal, two-time victor Novak Djokovic and 2012 champion Andy Murray. Top-ranked Simona Halep could be an opponent in the fourth round. After falling 6-1, 6-0 to Johanna Konta at the end of July, the worst loss of her career, Williams then opened up on Instagram about her postpartum emotions. "I can just continue to strive".

"That I would be the favourite at this point nearly a year after having a baby is quite interesting", Williams said. "I think that after Zverev, he's the best at the moment that's 23, 24 and under". "I feel like it will for sure pay off eventually". Like Ana Ivanovic after winning the French Open at an early age; Kvitova after winning her first Wimbledon; and Angelique Kerber who went into a steep, if temporary decline after winning the Australian and US Opens in 2016, Stephens found it nearly impossible to win a match for the remainder of 2017 after her triumph here 12 months ago.

That showing impressed ESPN commentator Chris Evert.

Halep has been playing with confidence since winning the French Open and her preparations for the U.S. Open included a win at Montreal before reaching the Cincinnati final, though she pulled out from CT to rest an Achilles injury. "I would be very happy for Serena to break that record, especially as she is making a comeback after having a child".

So Sabalenka will just have to draw on what experience she has this week-and remember that one of her biggest victories to date came against the reigning US Open Champion Sloane Stephens in the final of the 2017 Fed Cup.

"It doesn't matter to me", Williams said of her favorite's status. Serena was to me the second or third best player still last week, and she is getting better every week.

Britain's Konta has been handed an extremely tough run, meeting sixth seed Caroline Garcia in round one, with Sharapova, Kerber and Jelena Ostapenko all in her quarter.

She later said, "I had no idea it would be so controversial." .

As any hero does, Serena Williams maintains grace under fire and acts in alignment with her higher objective. I've been working incredibly hard. "You have to face those obstacles".

The 36-year-old American star stunned Paris this year in her body-hugging outfit which she said was inspired by the "Black Panther" superhero movie and made her feel like a "warrior princess".

"The combination of Serena this year, for example, it will no longer be accepted".

'The president of the French Federation, he's been really awesome. He's been so easy to talk to.

"My whole team is basically French, so we have a wonderful relationship".

"I believe we have sometimes gone too far. It wouldn't be a big deal ... everything's fine, guys".

While Williams herself has said she is not offended by the change in dress code, many fans and ex-players are.
