Serena Williams Gets Back in the Game

Tennis ace Serena Williams returns to the winner's circle after battling injuries, grief, and a dramatic slip in her pro ranking.

Sister Act continued...

So what's next for Serena Williams, besides the French Open later this month (May 27-June 10) and the U.S. Open in September, when the eyes of the tennis world will be on her to see if she takes her ninth --and perhaps 10th -- Slam, and maintains her comeback status? "I stay in the present, I think about today," she says simply.

And a decade from now? Does Williams see herself still competing? Commentating from an announcer's box like her colleague, former champion Tracy Austin? Running a fashion empire? Starring in Hollywood films?

"I just met with my people the other day about the clothing line, so that's in the works. And being in a movie -- well, well, that would be a dream come true. But in 10 years, I want to be a mom. Definitely. I think I want to have at least three."

As for her philosophy for success -- on court and in life -- Williams serves up a kind of bravado we haven't seen from this tennis ace in years: "Someone's gotta win, so it might as well be me."
