Serena 'very likely' to defend Australian Open title

Serena 'very likely' to defend Australian Open title Serena Williams to make tennis return in Australia
Rita Gibson | 08 Декабря, 2017, 01:35

Williams gave birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, during the 2017 US Open, and has not competed professionally since she won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open earlier this year.

Williams has said she wants to return for the Australian Open, and her desire to do so is the best reason to believe that she will.

This is all according to Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley, who might have some incentive to hype up the best player of all time's historic return to competition.

However, tournament director Craig Tiley raised hopes of a return to action for the 23-time Grand Slam victor who will be having a crack at her seventh Melbourne Park crown after marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last month.

Williams is just one Grand Slam title away from matching the record of 24 set by Margaret Court.

Tiley is optimistic she will return for a crack at her seventh Melbourne Park crown after marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last month. "It would be a pretty significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that".

"There is no question she will be ready in our view". At that point, Williams was practicing and Mouratoglou would soon join her in Florida.

The Australian Open runs from January 15-28 with the Melbourne-Cairns showdown on the 24th.

"We are expecting the AO Game to be a sell-out so we urge fans to get their tickets quickly and come along and enjoy a great day at the tennis, followed by a night at the basketball", ANBL chief executive Jeremy Loeliger said.
