Williams, 36, has not competed since winning a 23rd Grand Slam singles championship at the 2017 Australian Open in January.
However, tournament director Craig Tiley raised hopes of a return to action for the 23-time Grand Slam victor who will be having a crack at her seventh Melbourne Park crown after marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last month.
Margaret Court, an Australian has 24 major titles, making her the most successful player in Grand Slam history.
"She wants to break a record that is Margaret Court's", Mr Tilley said.Читайте также: Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 Delayed by Ubisoft
This comes after she wedded her boyfriend, the Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a pompous wedding in New Orleans in November.
Tiley further added that if Serana is able to return and defend her title, it would be a huge achievement.
"We will see how her body is reacting and how her tennis level is and we will take a decision regarding Australia", he said. "Serena is getting ready for 2018".
"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.
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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
