Serena Williams made her return to the tennis court, with an exhibition match loss to Jelena Ostapenko on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
Saturday marked Serena’s first tennis match since giving birth to daughter Alexis.
“I don’t think I am going to rate my performance,” Williams said. “I have plenty of comebacks, from injuries, from surgeries, but I’ve never had a comeback after actually giving birth to a human being. So, in my eyes, I feel it was a wonderful, wonderful match for me.”
According to ESPN, Serena struggled with her serve, but still impressed after being away from the sport that she’s dominated for almost a year
