Serena Williams is making return to the U.S. open since giving birth to her 11-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. last year. 

Williams reunited with the tennis court at the French Open in May. It was the sports star’s first time touching a ball or racket in a competitive setting since winning her final match before birth at the French Open in May. 

Fans have been anticipating Monday’s competition for quite some time, especially because Serena was under so much scrutiny during the French Open. 

Williams hyped fans up yesterday afternoon by posting a simple picture of her tennis racket and feet, and captioned it, “I’m Back!”
