Serena gets no rest before Olympics, takes court in Stanford

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Serena Williams has had little time to reflect on her first Grand Slam title in two years and even less time to sleep with a schedule she says is "probably the most hectic it has been in my career.''

And it's only just begun.

Three days removed from winning Wimbledon and less than three weeks away from returning to London to go for Olympic gold, a jet-lagged Williams was back on the court Tuesday - more than 5,000 miles and eight time zones away from the All England Club.

She begins play Wednesday as the top seed and defending champion at the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford, a place where her comeback took off last year.
