Serena Williams return to Professional tennis this Thursday

Her return coincides with a new Nike ad campaign, unveiled during Sunday night's Oscars broadcast, with Williams spreading the message that "there's no wrong way to be a woman".

Azarenka made this wacky revelation during an event ahead of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. She gave birth to her daughter and endured scary ordeal in the hospital after having an emergency C-section that left her bed-ridden for six weeks.

'I definitely want two [kids], God willing, ' she told ET.

But Williams says she's aiming to be back at her best - apparently more than comfortable with coach Patrick Mouratoglou's comments to wtatennis.com that her goal for this season "will be to win Grand Slams".

'I've always wanted to be a mom but I never seemed to have time with my career, ' she said. Watson is ranked as the second best player in the United Kingdom and she will hope that her skills are good enough to beat one of the former best players in the world. "My comeback is here". This Thursday I will start playing tennis again professionally for the first time since giving birth to my daughter.

"This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida - both my home states. So I created my Serena Gold toned "S" pin".

The exhibition raised money for the Yetunde Price Resource Center and Sophie's Voice.

Along with wearing the pin, she encouraged her fans to share the words that begin with "S" that means the most to them. "Mine is Strong and Sure!" "What would your "S" mean?"

That's what Williams' husband, internet entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian, has done to mark his wife's return to the day job, setting up the tribute on the eastbound I-10 which will take spectators to the Indian Wells event. "Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a "S" pin". She ends her post with "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"

Williams has played just one Fed Cup doubles match while away from the WTA Tour.
