Get it, Serena!
Serena Williams is back in action -- and winning matches her sister, Venus. The pair returned to the court together at the French Open and beat out 14th-seeded Shuko Aoyama and Miyu Kato on Wednesday. The victory comes just one day after Serena won her first grand slam match against Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic in a 7-6, 6-4 first-round victory, 14 months after giving birth.
Serena, who looked stylish on the court in a black catsuit with a red band across her waist, received a sweet message from her husband, Alexis Ohanian, after her and Venus' big win.
