In January 2017, Serena Williams defeated her sister Venus Williams to lift the Australian Open.

She has been in training since the birth with new hitting partner Jarmere Jenkins, but coach Patrick Mouratoglou said last week that she had not yet made a decision on whether she would compete for her eighth Australian Open singles title.

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.

Today, he told the Herald Sun that Williams's participation in the tournament is "very likely".

Margaret Court, an Australian has 24 major titles, making her the most successful player in Grand Slam history.

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

She gave birth to a girl in September and has taken to the practice courts in preparation for a return in 2018.

"There's no question that she'll be ready in our view and she wants to break a record that is Margaret Court's". She is practising and getting back in shape. I will be joining her soon in Florida.

Tiley described the Australian Open, which will be held from January 15-28, as a "family-friendly event".

"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.
