Serena Williams 'has entered' Australian Open

"This is a unique opportunity to showcase two of the world's biggest sports in one location on one day and our fans are the big winners", Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley said. Margaret Court has the all-time record with 24.

Speaking to reporters in US, Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley said it is "very likely" for Serena to come back in January to chase down the record of winning 24 grand slam titles now held by Margaret Court.

Tiley further added that if Serana is able to return and defend her title, it would be a huge achievement.

Despite giving birth to her first child just a few months ago, the American has been eager to get back onto the court, and has been doing as much practising as possible, so that she's ready to make her return at the beginning of 2018. But last week, Williams's coach said on CNN that no decision had been made about the Australian Open.

The 23-time grand slam singles champion has since given birth to a daughter, Alexis Olympia, and Wednesday internet mogul Alexis Ohanian.
