It looks like the former No. 1 ranked women's tennis player is ready to start training again after a long hiatus.

Serena Williams, who had surgery on her right foot after cutting it on broken glass, reportedly got her cast off after seven months.

The tennis champion told the New York Post that she plans to start training immediately so she can play in the French Open in May.

Last week, Williams withdrew from the Nike Clash of Champions exhibition scheduled for March 8 in Eugene, Ore.
