Serena Williams' Roland Garros preparation

The 39-year-old, who accepted a wildcard invitation for the Parma tournament after losing her opening match at the Italian Open last week, suffered shock defeat to the 68th-ranked Katerina Siniakova in the second round of the Emilia-Romagna Open.

She had beaten teenage qualifier Lisa Pigato 6-3, 6-2 in the previous round for her first victory since defeating Simona Halep in the Australian Open quarter-finals in February.

After some time off, Williams then lost in straight sets in Rome to Nadia Podoroska.

The 23-time grand slam champ is preparing for the French Open in Paris which starts on May 30.

Meanwhile, Ash Barty has been handed a difficult draw in the French Open as the World No.1.
