La norteamericana Serena Williams anunció este miércoles que está de vuelta tras cerca de un año alejada de las canchas.

En abril del 2017 reveló que estaba embarazada de 20 semanas por lo que debió perderse el resto de la temporada.

Su noticia causó gran revuelo ya que en enero había conquistado el Australian Open con un feto en su vientre.

“Es oficial. Mi regreso ya está aquí. Este jueves jugaré al tenis profesionalmente por primera vez desde que di a luz a mi hija. Todo este mes estuve jugando torneos en California y Florida, los estados en los que crecí. Y el jueves, el día en que jugaré mi primer partido, será el Día Internacional de la Mujer. Por eso mi regreso no pudo haber caído en un mejor día“, expresó Serena en su cuenta de Instagram.

It's official. My comeback is here. This Thursday I will start playing tennis again professionally for the first time since giving birth to my daughter. This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida- both my home states. Thursday, the day I play my very first match, marks international women's day. My comeback could not have come on a better day and I decided I wanted to do something different let you all be apart of my long journey back (if you want of course!!) So I created my Serena Gold toned "S" pin. When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity which supports the Yetunde Price Resource center. I want this gold "S" mean something special to you personally. What is one S word in your life that means something to you? Mine is Strong and Sure! So when I wear my "S" pin I am representing Strength, and Sureness. What would your "S" mean? They are for now only available for my fans that come see my at Indian wells, and Miami starting Wednesday as well as Thursday when I play!! Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin. Post pics of you wearing your "S" and tag me! Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!!
