Barty's reward is a centre-court crack at the most celebrated player in women's tennis after Williams marked her much-hyped grand-slam comeback with a lung-busting 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 win over unsafe Czech left-hander Kristyna Pliskova.

"It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves", Williams said after beating Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 (4), 6-4 at Rolland Garros.

After giving birth to her first daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., last September, Williams' climb back to the top has been tough.

Although the tennis star had a relatively smooth pregnancy - that included an Australian Open win - her daughter's birth wasn't without complications.

Serena Williams made her first Grand Slam appearance as a mother at Roland Garros on Tuesday. "No matter what, that's my priority", Williams said after her 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 win over Pliskova.

The very first game featured an ace at 112 miles per hour (181 kph) and when it ended with Pliskova netting a backhand, the chair umpire intoned, "Jeu, Madame Williams", - French for "Game, Mrs. Williams", a change from the "Mademoiselle" officials use for unmarried female players. I don't know where this story - I don't even drink beer, and I don't know where this story came out. She had almost as many unforced errors, 25, as winners, 29.

"We designed it way before the movie", she said, "but still, it kind of reminds me of that".

Williams, 36, had to fight for this one, particularly in the first set in which she lost the first three points of the tiebreaker.

"And I think just what an opportunity".

Pliskova had another crack at a break in Serena's next service game but was instead broken herself in game 5 to go down 7-6 3-2.

But as the match wore on, and rust fell from the American's game, she single-mindedly imposed her will.

"She's a genuine champion", Barty said.

The Russian, who was Paris champion in 2012 and 2014, fired 35 winners in her victory on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Next up for Williams is a clash against Australian 17th seed Ashleigh Barty.

Stosur earlier powered into the second round for the 12th straight year with a 6-2 6-4 victory over former US Open semi-finalist Yanina Wickmayer.

Barthel, the last countrywoman to beat Goerges, in 2013, looked subdued against the higher-ranked opponent, bidding to reach at least the quarterfinal, equalling her best result here, in the only Slam where she hasn't reached the final.
