Williams shared a new campaign poster for her new line of shoes which also shows her doing yoga alongside the caption: ‘I’m back, and I’m healthy’.
‘I think we’ve created a new trend for women’s tennis. With this line of shoes in particular,’ Serena said of her new shoe range.
‘I think this can open a whole new market for women’s tennis, I think this is a new era, a new age.

Williams has had an operation on the joint in her left knee, which required the removal of some cartilage, and was forced to take a month off from the sport.

‘I thought about retiring,’ she said. I was just so focused on my work.
