Serena Williams still plans on being the yardstick in women’s tennis

She had played just once this year, losing a Fed Cup doubles match with Venus last month, and hasn't played a singles match on tour since winning the 2017 Australian Open, where she beat Venus in the final. "I think we can say without a doubt that this is her biggest challenge", Mouratoglou told the official WTA website.

Serena Williams sabbatical from the women's tour will come to an end as she prepares for her first match in 14 months at Indian Wells. She knows that coming back might take some time, but her level of expectation is high as always.

"I would have thought I would have retired six years ago, but I'm still here and I'm playing great, and I think I'll still be playing good". It's just a little different, I'm just expecting to see where I am more than anything. "If I want to play in those Grand Slams (the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open) and play well, I think now is the ideal time to start".

"It was good", the 36-year-old Williams said of the experience.
