Serena Williams sent a message - literally - that she was back on the practice court on Tuesday, updating the world via Twitter that one of the WTA's greatest legends is hopefully on her way back to the sport after a lengthy lay-off.

"Cool news guys stay tuned... I'll update you with a pic... You ready?" she Tweeted, then later wrote with more, including a photo of her on the practice court in a pink outfit. "Look who I spotted on the court. Her first day back..."
