Serena Williams Defeated In Come Back Match In Abu Dhabi

New mum, Serena Williams on Saturday suffered defeat on her comeback from a maternity break as French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko powered to victory in the “first to ten points” final set at the Mubadala World Championship in Abu Dhabi.




The championship is an exhibition tournament.


The slow moving 36-year-old Williams looked static and far from full fitness just four months after the birth of her first child and Ostapenko,a 20-year-old Latvian, won 6-2, 3-6, 10/5.

“The first match is always really hard after a break,” Williams said.


The 36-year-old American, winner of 23 grand slam single titles, was making a comeback after taking nearly 11 months off to have her first child.


Her last match was the Australian Open final, which she won despite being two-month pregnant

It was the first time Ostapenko had played against Williams, whom she described as her “childhood idol”.

She'll come back stronger next year. But motherhood is bringing her close to retirement.

Your comment will be visible after approval

I think she should bow out now that the ovation is loudest. She has really well for herself.

She should have retired and went out in bang. A good actor leave the stage when the ovation is loudest after all she is not hungry

She had better quit as the ovation is still loud.

It happens to all of us.. It starts from the 9months.
Then you think after giving birth you swing back into your career,swag and education like.. Man’s not hot.
It takes a while.. But we eventually get there.
The funny thing though is... As you are getting back your life, you go for another journey🤣🤣🤣😂 Its a freakin cycle.
Serena’s got this🙌
