The American is due to compete at Indian Wells where she takes on Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan, ranked 53 in the world, on Thursday.
"She's got power, depth".
World No. 4 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine won the competition after decisive wins over Williams' sister Venus (10-3), CoCo Vandeweghe (10-0) and Zhang (10-3).
Serena Williams sabbatical from the women's tour will come to an end as she prepares for her first match in 14 months at Indian Wells. The message is a strong one for all women out there, even if you haven't won 23 Grand Slam singles titles.
Williams last appeared in a Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open.
Serena Williams is eyeing her first French Open title since 2015. "It was good", she said of the experience. "I have high expectations, and I think everyone should set high expectations for themselves".
Her coach certainly does.
Winning straight away it is not her priority, though, according to Mouratoglou, who says breaking Margaret Court's grand slam record is her main goal.
As well as having her daughter in September, she developed several small blood clots in her lungs and her resumption of competitive action has been delayed longer than anticipated.

Mike Mayock of NFL Network suggested that Jackson is sending a statement by not doing anything but the quarterback-only drills. Jackson who bypassed his senior season at Iowa is projected as a first round National Football League draft pick.
Venus already knows what to expect.
"I think she'll be ready for Roland Garros".
'She's going to bring that instinct on the court with her, so I don't think she's too anxious about that'.
Monday's event featured eight players in the first all-female Tie Break Tens competition to take place in the United States. The remainder of the field included Sorana Cirstea of Romania and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who retired past year.
"The way Serena plays is very short points, she doesn't have to hit 20 balls to win a rally, the way the game is played lends itself to playing less and still be able to do it well as long as you stay in physical shape", she added. "It feels good but I'm still getting there, obviously".
Vandeweghe, a NY native, jumped at the chance to play at MSG. She has not played a tour event since Wimbledon last July. "I've never been the right kind of woman - oversized, overconfident, too mean...to black for my tennis whites, too motivated for motherhood".
She was on the U.S. team in last month's victory over the Netherlands in North Carolina and enjoys seeing both Williams sisters still playing well. There are three grand slams left this season.
Her coach since 2012, Frenchman Mouratoglou has been with Williams for 10 of those major wins, and he said he believes there are no limits to what she can achieve.
"If that's the result, yeah, that would be great", she said.
