"I want this gold "S" to mean something special to you personally", she said, then asking her followers to think of "s-words" that mean a lot to them. "So, when I wear my "S" pin, I am representing Strength and Sureness". Thursday, the day I play my very first match, marks worldwide women's day.
She continued with a high society hit-and-giggle at Madison Square Garden, and will turn serious tomorrow when she plays her first-round match against Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas at the prestigious Indian Wells tournament.
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the 14th Annual Desert Smash Celebrity Tennis Event in La Quinta, Calif. on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, Serena Williams revealed that she wants to expand her family.

Mixing 27 unforced errors with 34 winners, it was far from easy for the unseeded Williams on the slow hardcourt in Indian Wells.
She was back in action alongside her sister Venus Williams in a doubles match at the Fed Cup on February 11. Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin.
Her husband Alexis Ohanian was in the crowd.
"I'm so excited to play on this night", she said. "I wish I would have made a few more shots".
Serena Williams' lovely Vogue cover story inspired lots of oohs and aaahs, but the story that accompanied the cover caused quite a stir online. So knowing that going in, or some doctors not caring as much for us, is heartbreaking.

That, and the chance to stick it to those who've tried to put her and her fellow females down all her life.
