Williams likes her chances this week at the Family Circle Cup.
"I'm feeling really good about my game," she said. "I'm just taking everything a day at a time and not getting too excited or too depressed.
"I love playing on the clay. I have a lot of fun on the clay. And this is a good clay court. It's not too slow, it's not too fast and you can produce a good slide on it."
