Slow and steady Serena Williams is getting back in her strides and she has made her way back to the Top 10 in the WTA rankings for the first time since the birth of her daughter in September 2017.

According to Reuters reports, Williams is No. 10 in the latest rankings released by the tennis body.

Japan’s Naomi Osaka remained No. 1. Simona Halep of Romania and Sloane Stephens each moved up a spot to Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, is next scheduled to play in the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., in March – the same tournament that marked her return to the tour last spring.

The 37-year-old has not played since the Australian Open last month, which she exited in the quarterfinals.

Williams first appeared in the Top 10 on April 5, 1999. This is her 793rd career week in the Top 10.
