Serena Williams flashes giant wedding ring as she participates in charity event

The 23-time Grand Slam champion was eliminated 6-3, 6-2 in the first round by rising 20-year-old star Naomi Asaka early Wednesday evening.

A return to action at the Australian Open with a modified serving action resulted in a fourth round defeat while a limp exit at Indian Wells last week only heightened doubts that the 30 year-old would ever add to his total of 12 Grand Slams.

"I feel like Key Biscayne had some wonderful memories, especially for me, had some great times and great memories there and, you know, so many iconic moments (have) happened there", Williams said.

"So I had to open up and figure out things, how to move forward and get inspired and be the best version I can be."Djokovic, who will play in the second round here on Friday, underwent a "small medical intervention" following his defeat in Melbourne and has been seen in the build up here simulating a baseball pitch to ensure his right elbow stands up to the test".

"She had a kid, which we should all be celebrating, so when she comes back there should be a grace period where she can still be seeded", Blake added.

"I hope they revisit those talks although it will be too late for (Williams) unless she decides to have another child", he said. She, however, has a risky first-round opponent in Japan's Naomi Osaka, who emerged as the surprise victor at Indian Wells.

Williams, driven away from Crandon Park straight after the match, is now 2-2 in her comeback, with her year's break from the game depriving her of any seeding protection and so laying her open to meeting potent opponents in the early rounds.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor, whose official ranking stands at world No. 495, is for the moment unseeded for WTA events.

"We had all this land; I figured there had to be a way to do it", said Ross. "Women should not be penalized for giving birth by starting from zero".

"Serena should have a special seeding, but also WTA should use the most current ranking", tennis commentator and former world number one Lindsay Davenport said on the Tennis Channel. "Most people when I spoke to them about the idea said, 'It's insane. But I think falling pregnant and having a baby falls into a completely different category and the WTA rule should be looked at". Is she going to be nervous playing Serena now that expectations are higher? "So a little bit at a time and eventually I'll get there". "But right now, I'm taking a little bit at a time".
