"She has got her visa, she has entered [the tournament], she is practicing and she probably just needs a bit more space for a bigger entourage", the tournament director said.

She gave birth to her first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, with her partner, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, in September.

Tiley insists her return is "very likely" with just over a month go go until the start of the tournament.

Her triumph in Australia past year saw her eclipse Steffi Graf's Open Era record of 22 titles.

If Williams does win the 2018 Australian Open, it will be her eighth win Down Under, and her third in four years.

India Granted Membership of Wassenaar Arrangement
Official sources said the plenary meeting of the 41- member grouping was examining India's application for its membership. Beijing on Thursday reiterated that its position on admitting new members to the NSG remained unchanged.

Victory over her sister Venus previous year moved Williams one behind Margaret Court's all-time record of major wins.

Williams has said she wants to return for the Australian Open, and her desire to do so is the best reason to believe that she will.

Williams, 36, has not competed since winning a 23rd Grand Slam singles championship at the 2017 Australian Open in January. She has taken time off the tour, raising questions over whether the American would attempt to defend her title next month. "It would be a pretty significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that". She is practising and getting back in shape.

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

Former world number one women's tennis player Serena Williams will return to the sport in January.
