Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou, in an interview to CNN, had earlier said that the decision on Serena's return will be taken after seeing how she fares in training.

Defending champion Williams, 36, gave birth to her daughter Alexa in September and married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a star-studded New Orleans wedding in November.

Serena Williams is "very likely" to return to Melbourne for the 2018 Australian Open, according to tournament director Craig Tiley.

Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, which is the most in the Open era of women's tennis.

Basketball is heading to the Australian Open tennis for the first time, with a top-level game to be played at one of the stadiums during the opening Grand Slam of the year.


The Australian, Margaret Court remains the most successful player in Grand Slam history with 24 major titles, and Serena Williams will be looking to equal the record when tournament opens in January.

"There's no question that she'll be ready in our view and she wants to break a record that is Margaret Court's", Tiley said.

The 23-time grand slam singles champion has since given birth to a daughter, Alexis Olympia, and Wednesday internet mogul Alexis Ohanian. She is practising and getting back in shape.

United will play the Cairns Taipans at the venue, which is usually locked out by the Australian Open for the last two weeks of January.

"We will see how her body is reacting and how her tennis level is".
