Serena Williams to return at Australia Open, says tournament chief


Serena Williams has entered the Australian Open, the tournament announced.

"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", he told Melbourne's Herald Sun.

Margaret Court has the all-time record with 24.

Now ranked No.22 in the world, Williams told CNN in July she was intending to return to tennis - echoing the words of her spokespeople - and if the American does show up in Melbourne, it would come about four-and-a-half months after she gave birth.

Williams earlier this year told Vogue magazine that she has outlined "the most outrageous plan" for her return. "I spent a lot of time at this center, just even out here on the courts with the kids". Maybe I can help her continue. It ruins lives. I think one of the hardest days of all of our lives was having to tell our sister's children what happened to their mom. "Either I win, or I don't play".
