Forget the catsuit. Check out Serena Williams' romper

This match marked Williams' first time at the Australian Open since she gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia.

The 21-year-old German has reached the quarter-final of a Grand Slam just once - last year at the French Open - but has been backed to challenge for the Majors this season. The Frenchman believes that Serena had a great 2018 season which can be an extra confidence boost in 2019. "First of all, past year she made an incredible effort to come back in shape after having a baby and actually she came back in a decent shape quite fast", said Mouratoglou. "It's weird walking back on - by myself this time - it feels good". It is great to be back. "That was literally the greatest win of my career".

The American's clash with fellow mother Tatjana Maria was her first outside of exhibition events since the tumultuous US Open final last September.

American giant Williams is bidding to match Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam crowns on her first return to Melbourne Park since winning in 2017 while eight weeks pregnant.

As for her play on the court, Williams crushed good friend and neighbor Tatjana Maria 6-0 6-2 in 49 minutes.

In the third round, Barty will meet Maria Sakkari of Greece, who triumphed in straight sets over Australian qualifier Astra Sharma 6-1, 6-4 later in the day. She took time out from the tour and is now into her fourth Grand Slam tournament since returning. Days before the start of the tournament, she withdrew, saying in a statement, "Although I am super close, I'm not where I personally want to be".

Perhaps what was equally exciting to fans of the remarkable athlete was her choice of performance wear this year: a bright green Nike bodysuit.

Asked if she was still anxious about the thrombosis issue revealed in 2011, Williams said: "Definitely still concerned".

"I have had some issues, and they're not done. So it's just something I just have to do for pretty much probably the rest of my career", she said.

"But I'm always at the doctor". "With DVT, it's very scary. for me it's incredibly frightening".
