Serena Williams' appearance at the 2018 Australian Open is uncertain. Her coach Patrick Mouratoglou released some updates to CNN about the former World No. 1's current situation. 'Serena is getting ready for 2018', said the French coach in Nice, where he runs a tennis academy. 'She practicing and getting back in shape. I will be joining her soon in Florida. We will see how her body is reacting and how her tennis level is and we will take a decision regarding Australia.'
In a recent interview, Serena revealed why she got married to Alexis Ohanian just on November 17. Alexis's mother, who died nine years ago, would have celebrated the birthday that day. 'Obviously, we wish that she could be here for this, but choosing her birthday as our wedding date was a nice way of making sure she’s still involved and made us feel more connected to her on our day', said Serena.
