Before the defense of her French Open title, Williams managed to squeeze in a little time to help long time friend Kim Kardashian prepare for her Paris wedding to Kanye West.

In April, the 32 year old Williams and 33 year old Kardashian were seen in Paris visiting several houses of fashion and taking in some lunch at L'Avenue a popular French bistro.

Serena summed up the day simply,

“It’s always fun with Kim.”

Williams started off the second Grand Slam tournament of the year with a sound beating of Alize Lim 6-2, 6-1. The score doesn't show the nerves that Williams was fighting.

“I think in general for me I always have a little bit of nerves and just I try to harness them and put it in the right place,” Serena said. “I was extremely nervous last year here in the final. The whole match I could barely get there. I was really, really, really nervous.

As far as the Kardashian wedding, Serena said she was at "some of the festivities" which included a Versailles dinner. Williams has gone down this road before as she also attended Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kris Humphries in August of 2011.
