Serena Williams is getting ready for 2019 – and has big plans already as she prepares for the Australian Open.
That was the last Grand Slam she won, lifting the trophy in January 2017 while pregnant with daughter Olympia – and she’s now aiming to win a record eighth title in Melbourne Park after she spent 2018 readjusting to on-court life.
“It truly makes me excited for what’s ahead in 2019,” she told the National.
“I always have crazy big goals but I like to keep them to myself. I think keeping them a bit of a secret helps me do the best I can.”

In 2018 she reached the final of Wimbledon as well as the US Open – an achievement of which she is proud.
“Honestly, I cannot believe the year I had,” she said.
“I have to say I always expect the best from myself, but reaching two grand slam finals back-to-back was beyond my expectations.”
