The first hints that Serena Williams' tennis return is near

Serena Williams has entered the Australian Open, the tournament announced. Her daughter, Alexis, was born September 1.

Defending Australian Open champion Serena Williams looks "very likely" to make her competitive return to tennis in Melbourne, according to tournament director Craig Tiley.

Serena is just one short of matching Magaret Court's all-time mark of 24 Grand Slams.

"We'd be pretty excited about the possibility (of her coming)", he added.

"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", said NBL chief Jeremy Loeliger.

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.

"There's no question she'll be ready in our view". "Serena is getting ready for 2018". She is practising and getting back in shape. At that point, Williams was practicing and Mouratoglou would soon join her in Florida.

She even posted some videos on her social media accounts of her playing tennis whilst being heavily pregnant, which just goes to show how dedicated she is to the sport.

United will play the Cairns Taipans at the venue, which is usually locked out by the Australian Open for the last two weeks of January.

Tiley also spoke about how the event is a "family-friendly" one and referring to Williams and her baby, he cited the example of how Roger Federer travels with four children.
