The last time Williams hit the court was in January 2017 at the Australian Open, when she won the tournament while pregnant.
"That's the reason I have success, because I go every day on court knowing that I can win, that I can lose, and that's the sport". I always wanted to be a super hero, and it's kind of my way of being a super hero.
Williams, who recently took time off to have a baby, also said that the catsuit made her feel like a superhero. "It definitely has little functionality to it. It's a fun suit, but it's also functional so I'm able to play without any problems".
But the 36-year-old's serve remains a formidable weapon, helping her take the first set after a tie-break. In the victory, Pliskova won 74 percent of her first serve points and 37 percent of her second serve points.
The pair exchanged breaks in the second set, with Williams grabbing the decisive one in the seventh game before sealing a 7-6 (7/4) 6-4 victory - not bad going for her first match on clay in two years.
NYT tennis reporter Christopher Clarey writes: "Serena Williams's personal life and priorities have certainly changed in the past 16 months, but she was not going to bid adieu to the French Open without a fight".
When Serena Williams was asked what she thought of Novak Djokovic's declaration that she was "the greatest female athlete of all time, probably", there was only one word in that statement that stood out for the American. She said: "People would say I was born a guy, all because of my arms, or because I'm strong".
"I'm not putting any pressure on myself as I normally do". She confirmed she will play at warm-up tournaments in Nottingham, Birmingham and Eastbourne before the season's third Grand Slam at Wimbledon. But, as it turns out, she also has a Black Panther-inspired catsuit which makes her feel like a "warrior princess".
"If I were to play my former self, I'm not sure I would win", she said.
"I hope now we can wear leggings alone!" I've been wearing trousers a lot in general when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going.
"To be honest, there's something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom", she told Vogue in January.
