Star women tennis sensation and newly married baby born mother Serena Williams is all set to make history at Australian Open as she’ll be chasing her 24th singles grand slam title. Aus Open tournament director Craig Tiley has confirmed that Serena’ll be making return to Melbourne Park for her historic 8th Australian Open crown.
“She has got her visa, she has entered [the tournament], she is practicing and she probably just needs a bit more space for a bigger entourage,” Tiley said on Wednesday.
Serena Williams has already claimed 23 grand slams titles and 7 Australian Open titles which is the same number as won by Margaret Court. If Serena manages to win 2018 Australian Open, she’ll create history and will break Margaret’s record of most Aus Open titles.
“There’s no question that she’ll be ready in our view and she wants to break a record that is Margaret Court’s. It would be a pretty significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that.”
The Australian Open 2018 will be played between 15 and 28 January.
