Albany - Serena Williams continued her comeback on Tuesday night, taking part in mixed doubles, doubles and singles in World Team Tennis.

Williams, who sat out nearly a year with an assortment of health problems before returning to play the Eastbourne International prior to Wimbledon, beat Martina Hingis 5-3 in women's singles to give the Washington Kastles an 18-15 lead over the New York Sportimes with one only men's doubles match remaining.

After arriving just in time for the start of play and getting no practice or warmup, Williams and partner Leander Paes lost mixed doubles in a tiebreaker against Hingis and Travis Parrott.

Williams and Rennae Stubbs then won the women's doubles, besting Hingis and Katie O'Brien 5-2, with Williams serving a love game to put the Kastles up 4-1.
