Serena Williams Wins First Grand Slam Match Since Giving Birth


Serena Williams hadn't stepped foot on the court in over a year, but you wouldn't have been able to tell when she beat Czech player Kristyna Pliskova in the first round of the French Open yesterday. Serena scored a 7-6, 6-4 earning a first round victory in the game. 

She looked phenomenal wearing a black skintight catsuit, and wanted to encourage women from around the world to be proud of your body. When she gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia, she had to have emergency C-section, but then suffered multiple blood clots and had to be bed ridden for six weeks. She posted a picture of her in the suit writing, "Catsuit anyone? For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy—here you go. If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!!"

 Sports Center wrote on Twitter, "SHE'S BACK," to which Serena's hubby Alexis Ohanian replied, "Yes she is. And that superhero outfit."

You go Serena!
