The 23-time grand slam singles champion had showed great promise in her first major since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia last September. "It's kind of hard to play when I can't physically serve", Williams said, in a quickly-arranged press conference.
Williams has recently returned after giving birth to daughter Olympia in September, while 28th seed Sharapova is back in the draw after being refused a wildcard a year ago as she returned from a 15-month drugs ban. "To be able to put myself back in these positions and to not shy away from these moments, to come out on center court and want the challenge of moving forward and to be able to face Serena, I think that speaks for itself".
The match between Williams and Sharapova had been highly anticipated.
"I've never felt this in my life", she said.

Despite her win, as Williams approached the final round, it appeared increasingly hard for her, although spectators and fans continued to cheer her on. "I can take solace from the fact I'm going to continue to get better".
"I thought [doubles] was a flawless opportunity to see how I was going". Though she was playing excellent, it took a lot to get the point she's at now.
Williams, whose absence from the sport has seen her ranking tumbling to 451, has not lost to the Russian since 2004, winning their last 18 matches. She said the issue emerged in her previous singles match and she would have an MRI on Tuesday in Paris.
'I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she returns to the tour soon'. "So I'm just going to do what the doctors think I should do, and get all the evaluations on it". I love you, ' Serena wrote on her Instagram.
Sharapova will now await the victor of the match between No. 3-seeded Garbine Muguruza and Lesia Tsurenko. Muguruza has now played just 16 games in her last two matches combined, so she should be possibly the freshet player remaining in the tournament. Her opponent will advance to the quarterfinals.
