Outstanding Osaka knocks out Williams in Miami opener

New era! The Hard Rock Stadium which is also home to the Miami Dolphins football team will be transformed into a tennis arena each year for the Miami Open

Williams vowed to assist the development of the tournament in the modernised location and has a lofty ambition to match her competitive nature on the court. But late Monday night, the 23-time Grand Slam singles victor (and new mom) realized that something about the Nickelodeon show never quite made sense to her: "if the original benders were sky bisons, badger moles, and dragons; how does that tie in with Avatar Wan when the lion sea turtle gave all the people bending power?" "I think she should have been actually No. 1 seed in [Indian Wells] because she left as No. 1 in the world".

James Blake, Miami Open tournament director, said afterwards that: "It makes sense to protect someone who goes on maternity leave".

Such a lengthy absence means she's now ranked 491 and although the 36-year-old can use a protected world standing to enter up to eight tournaments during a 12-month period ― thus avoiding qualifying ― it does not apply to seedings.

Is tennis doing enough to support women who return to competition after giving birth?

Williams, however, looked in good shape as she showed off her tennis skills for a bit.

Even with the legal protections in place for women on maternity leave, returning as an "unseeded player" is a pretty apt metaphor for most mothers' re-entry to the workplace.

When she comes back, she plans to be holding a racket.

The defeat was the first time Williams has lost her first match at an American hard court championship for 21 years.

The American eight-time champion wildcard entrant made her return to the WTA Tour at last week's tournament in Indian Wells before a third-round exit to sister Venus, and will face the in-form Japanese player at Crandon Park.

"I hope they revisit those talks although it will be too late for (Williams) unless she decides to have another child", he said. For starters, the victor of that massive first-round match will have to face world No. 4 Elina Svitolina in the second round, providing more early-round women's excitement in Miami.

Simona Halep, who is ranked No. 1 in the world, told reporters last week that Williams, victor of 23 Grand Slams, called for more protected rankings. "I'm very grateful I was able to play her and it is better still that I was able to win".

While he had to contend with a lingering back issue throughout his whole career - down to the fact he was born with curvature of the spine - this comeback summed up a man who never fulfilled his talent but epitomised sheer determination and galvanised crowd support wherever he played.

"I have learned a lot about myself", he said. Is she going to be nervous playing Serena now that expectations are higher?
