"I knew I just had to show the crowd, like, listen, Sonya Kenin is in the house".
Kenin struggled to get into the match, and was broken for a second time later to trail 1-5, though was able to break the Australian as she served for the set, and hold for a second time to decrease the eighth seed's advantage to 5-3.
Williams is bidding to reach the second week for the 13th time as she continues her pursuit of equalling Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam titles.
"It (playing cricket) was incredible, it made me more hungry to come back and have success in tennis". Williams missed four Grand Slams during the 2017-18 season while going through her pregnancy.
"I mean, I think it's obvious that it went big after long time now, since Australian Open".
"Yeah, I played her here at the French Open a few years ago in a match I would love to forget", Barty said after beating Kenin.

Maybe it was the daunting deficit Serena Williams faced in the French Open's third round.
"I am glad I came", she said. Siniakova clinched the set when Osaka sent back her 16th unforced error of the set.
Kenin was much the better player in that match vs. Serena.
Williams has not played a pre-Wimbledon grass-court event since Eastbourne in 2011.
"I'd like to think she's got a very good chance", she said. "She's such a tough player. I am so happy my dad (Alexander) is there in the box".
And then, her voice choking on her words, Kenin added: "Obviously, you can tell, with my emotions". In the third round of the Australian Open, Anisimova beat Sabalenka 6-3, 6-2. After two of them, Williams stared down Kenin, who had questioned a call earlier in that game.
She hasn't lost a set in her three victories so far. Barty won 67 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her 11 break points.

Keys and Barty have met twice before.
A business-like Barty hasn't lost a set in Paris, dropping just 16 games in three matches en route to her first Roland Garros fourth round.
But Osaka said Saturday that she felt exhausted and was dealing with a headache.
Victor of the doubles tournament last year, 23-year-old Siniakova did not have to do much to close out the match 6-4 6-2. "It was my best tennis". Keys had 26 winners to 26 unforced errors, so she's winning despite having just on match this tournament where she's had more winners than errors.
The seventh-seeded Japanese player overcame strong resistance from local favorite Benoit Paire to win 6-2, 6-7 (8), 6-2, 6-7 (8), 7-5.
"It's weird, but I think me losing is probably the best thing that could have happened".
In the first ever meeting between these two, I have Keys priced as a -165 favorite, so I don't see an value on the moneyline.
