Serena Williams to return at Australia Open, says tournament chief

Serena Williams is expected to return to the court at the Australian Open, according to tournament director Craig Tiley.

Serena Williams is expected to return to the court at the Australian Open, according to tournament director Craig Tiley.

The 36-year-old has not played since winning last year's tournament in Melbourne - when she was pregnant with her first child.

She gave birth to a girl in September and has taken to the practice courts in preparation for a return in 2018.

And that will come at Melbourne Park after Tiley revealed the 23-time grand slam champion has entered the tournament with the target of eventually surpassing Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam singles titles.

He told the Herald Sun: " She's got her visa, she's entered, she's practising and she's probably just got to find a bit more space for a bigger entourage.

"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."
