Former World No. 1 Serena Williams said she felt on the right track despite a crushing loss in her long-awaited comeback to tennis on Sunday playing alongside big sister Venus in a Fed Cup dead rubber.

The duo were beaten 2-6, 3-6 by the Dutch pairing of Lesley Kerkhove and Demi Schuurs. "It felt really good to be back the court. I've been training and it was just exciting to be out there," she said. "I honestly feel better than I thought I was going to feel. So I feel like that I'm on the right track."
