Australian Open: Serena Williams may return


Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley says it’s “very likely” Serena Williams will return to Melbourne in January as she chases Margaret Court’s grand slam record.

The 36-year-old superstar is back training after the birth of her first child and some doubt has lingered over whether she will be comfortable enough to make her return in Melbourne and play for her seventh Australian Open win.

Tiley revealed all signs point to Williams playing at Melbourne Park and if Williams wins she will equal Court on 24 grand slam wins.
