Serena Williams Wins in Tennis Comeback After Giving Birth On Thursday, Williams scored 7-5-6-3 against opponent Zarina Diyas in straight sets in the first round in Indian Wells. It definitely wasn’t easy. I’ve played her several times before and we always have a couple of tight sets. But it was good. I’m a little rusty. This marked Williams’ first match since the 2017 Australian Open, in which she won while pregnant with her daughter Alexis. It’s been over a year and a kid later. I get to go home now to her so I’m excited about that. Thank you guys so much for supporting me.
