Testers, however, have the right to also make unannounced visits outside the one-hour window, though there is no guarantee the athlete will be at the location. I told her, 'Look, I'm going to stop.

But the American is determined not to dwell on the setback, even if she concedes the pressure will be on at Flushing Meadows.

Now that she's "Mrs. Williams", per the Wimbledon chair umpire, now that she's a mother, now that she is back on tour, Serena Williams is ready to rediscover her full complement of shots and full ability to dominate.

Williams dispatched Arantxa Rus 7-5 6-3 on Monday, a result that sees her join sister Venus in the second round. This will be the first time she'll compete since withdrawing from the French Open earlier this month with a chest muscle injury before her fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova.

"Oh, I'm just playing until Roger stops", Williams said.

"I don't think I ever actually lost that competitive side".

"She played unbelievable today, I've never seen her play like that before. I thought, "Hey, I have this fantastic child, I have all these Grand Slams, this is all super bonus", and it is". That's why the former world No. 1 and all-time women's Grand Slam champion leader has fallen so far in the rankings. This is all super-bonus.' And it is.

"I feel like equality, that's all I've been preaching, it's all about equality". Maybe that's the part I don't like so much: the inconsistency of the places where they test. "I also think it's healthy, in a way, for me to do what I need to do, be that working mom, then go back home and be the mom". It's weird, you know. "You just think about what I did wrong, what I can improve, what I'm going to do next".

Serena Williams is seeking her eighth Wimbledon singles title.

Buses were also called by the Israeli authorities to transfer the residents to the village of al-Eizariya, east of Jerusalem. In Abu Nawwar, the B'Tselem rights group told the Times of Israel that 62 people, half of them minors, were left homeless.

Sunday brought the withdrawal of two-time Wimbledon titlist Andy Murray, who had hip surgery in January.

Djokovic, seeded 12th, has been slumping for more than a year and is +650 to win his fourth Wimbledon title.

Hailing from the Netherlands, she nearly certainly receives a wildcard into her home tournament at 's-Hertogenbosch every year and made the last eight in 2017, beating Timea Babos along the way.

"If they rock up 10 times a day, it gets rough - because they can", he said.

It was her 15th successive win at Wimbledon, having won her previous two tournaments here. I was like, 'OK, I can do six months.' I was training and everything.

She is ranked outside the top 150, but the All England Club chose to seed her 25th based on past success, which includes collecting seven of her 23 Grand Slam singles trophies at Wimbledon.

And the Dane hopes her recent success can continue to inspire her at the All England Club. I didn't expect to suddenly get emotional. I thought, 'Wow. I literally didn't know that'.

"It was really windy for me today".

"What I've learned through the experience - every body is different, every person is different, every physical body is different", Williams said. Still, I'm debating if I should go 120 (mph) or whatever. "You know, I often find the less I serve, the better I serve, which is totally weird".
