French Open 2018: Maria Sharapova anticipates return to the limelight in Paris

But the internet is filled with conspiracy theories that she was born a man - theories that Williams is well aware of, as she wrote an open letter to her mother a year ago thanking her for her support over the issue. Her footwear was coordinated, fly knit in blush pink.

While Sharapova's quarter-final defeat by Williams at the 2016 Australian Open ended up being the last competitive match the Russian would play for 15 months after she was slapped with a doping ban, her American rival was on a maternity break for most of 2017.
