  • GETTYNovak Djokovic could challenge Rafael Nadal at the French Open

Australia's Ash Barty burst out of the blocks but legendary American Serena Williams drew on her "superhero" powers to prevail in a hard-fought second-round clash at the French Open on Friday (AEST).

She also said she hoped that her comeback to pro tennis after having her baby would inspire other women. I guess that's just who I am, ' she revealed. Asked if Serena should have deserved a seed, Barty replied: 'I think it's an extremely tough question. "I mean, I played well. I don't mind playing singles and doubles - I will fight my heart out".

Williams admitted she did not know how she managed to turn the match around from a set and a break down. But what every mother around the world does not have in common with Williams is trying to juggle all those demands while attempting to get back into tip-top shape in order to win Grand Slam titles.

"I want to be able to one day tell my daughter that I tried my best".

The 23-time Grand Slam champion will run into 11th seed Julia Goerges next and it will be interesting to see what kind of plan the German will bring into action.

Get through that, and Williams would face either five-time major champion Maria Sharapova or 2016 U.S. Open runner-up Karolina Pliskova.

Serena Williams has spoken about her struggle with postnatal depression following the hard birth of her daughter.

But the American insisted it was crucial to help prevent a return of life-threatening blood clots.

"It's not a typical outfit".

'I've broken down I don't know how many times. Who makes the rules?

"I definitely feel like it is an opportunity for me to inspire a whole different group of unbelievable women and kids". "I have given tennis so much, and tennis has actually given me a lot, and I couldn't be more grateful".

Ranked No. 453 in the world, Williams won her opening round match at the French Open Tuesday against world No. 70 Kristyna Pliskova.

The match between tennis' two comeback queens turned the instant Williams released a primal roar after blasting a backhand return victor after being broken in the opening game of the second set.

Williams is just getting back on to the court after giving birth to her daughter last September.

And when the 22-year-old broke Serena's serve in the first game of the next set, it looked like she might be about to secure the biggest win of her career.

But just as the half-full crowd enjoying the late evening sunshine in Court Philippe Chatrier anticipated a quick kill, Williams came storming back, reeling off four straight games for 4-1.

After statistics that were so negatively lopsided in that initial set, in which she managed to produce only three winners, Williams straightened things out, to the tune of 25 winners the rest of the way.

From there, it took Nadal three match points to finish, reaching the second round when Bolelli missed a forehand.
