“I really look forward to getting back on the court,” Williams said in a live Instagram conversation with elder sister Venus Williams on Tuesday.

“It’s what I do best. I absolutely love playing. I felt like my body needed a break, even though I didn’t want it. And now I am feeling better than ever. I am feeling more relaxed, more fit, and now I can go and play real tennis,” she added.
