The 36-year-old athlete said after defeating Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan at the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open in California:

"It was incredible. It's been over a year and a kid later and I get to go home to her now, and I'm excited about that. … It definitely wasn't easy. We always have a couple tight sets. It was good. I'm a little rusty, but it doesn't matter. I'm just out here on this journey and doing the best I can."

She also told reporters:

"Thank you guys for coming out. It was incredible. You know, it's been over a year and a kid later, and I get to go home now to her, so I'm excited about that."

Hopefully there are a few billboards waiting for her on the way home! Congrats!
