According to Tournament Director, Serena Williams is all set to defend her Australian Open next year. Talking to the Herald Sun, Tiley said, "She's got her visa, she's entered, she's practicing and she's probably just got to find a bit more space for a bigger entourage.
There's no question that she'll be ready in our view and she wants to break a record that is Margaret Court's. "It would be a pretty significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that." Tiley then gave Roger Federer’s example about how the Swiss has managed getting his family to the event and so could the American.
"We'd be pretty excited about the possibility [of her coming]. The entry list -- which I saw last night -- has the top 100 men and women, so it's a great field again." ALSO READ Ryan Harrison hires new coach ahead of 2018 season .
