Tennis sensation SerenaWilliams has expressed her desire to play a Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour event in Kenya.
"I think women deserve a little more equal play time on the centre courts outside of the marquee players", she told the BBC.
Following "a slew of heart complications" like swollen blood clots, and surgery to remove a hematoma, Williams still wanted to return for 2018 Australian Open, 3 months after she gave birth. I love it. I love her so much.
The BNP Paribas Open's official Twitter account said: 'Two-time champion Serena Williams set to face Zarina Diyas in the first round of the #BNPPO18 in her first match since winning the Australian Open a year ago and giving birth to daughter Olympia'. In a recent interview with the BBC, she shared some startling statistics that indicate that black women are three times more likely to die from childbirth complications in the USA than white women. I want this gold "S" mean something special to you personally. Mine is Strong and Sure! "So, when I wear my "S" pin, I am representing Strength and Sureness".
"I think Wimbledon are getting better with that - and I definitely applaud them - but there's obviously lots of progress all the tournaments could still be making". "What would your "S" mean?"
Both sisters are competing in the WTA Indian Wells tournament and they landed in the same portion of the draw meaning they could face each other in the third round.
The tennis champion then wrote about how her fans can show support to her and also her charity, "I created my Serena Gold toned "S" pin. Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!" "The way Serena plays is very short points, she doesn't have to hit 20 balls to win a rally, the way the game is played lends itself to playing less and still be able to do it well as long as you stay in physical shape", she added.
Rain and storms tonight; a pleasant finish to the weekend
As we look ahead to the afternoon we'll continue to deal with cloudy skies and lingering light to moderate showers. This will open the door for a cold front sitting to our west to move closer to us, and bring us some rain chances.
