Serena 'very likely' to defend Australian Open title

Serena'has entered Australian Open

The US Champion is said to be planning to use the Australian Open as her return to the court to keep her fit for the coming matches.

Later, it emerged the 36-year old was two-months pregnant while cruising through her victory.

"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", Tiley is quoted as saying.

Former world no 1 Serena Williams will be ready to make her tennis comeback at the Australian Open for the season's opening Grand Slam, organisers of the competition said on Wednesday. "It would be a pretty significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that".

Williams won this year's event while in the early weeks of pregnancy and is hoping to surpass Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

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