‘Australian Open may be Serena WIlliams’ best chance for record,’ says top analyst

Former world number five Daniela Hantuchova believes Serena Williams may have her ‘best chance’ of making history at the Australian Open.

By the time the tournament in Melbourne comes around, it will be four years since Williams last won a Grand Slam – though that includes the time she was away from tennis to arry and give birth to her daughter.

Serena is stranded on 23 major titles in her incredible career, one short of Margaret Court’s all-time record – and Hantuchova says her time to claim her share of that history may be about to arrive.

“Whenever Serena enters a tournament, she has a chance,” Amazon Prime analyst Hantuchiva said.

“I think the Australian Open could be the best one for her because she is away from some of the pressure she gets at Wimbledon and the US Open, and she can concentrate on her tennis.

“If there is a right place for her to get this record, maybe it will be in Melbourne.

“Hopefully, she can get there, and we can find a way to play with this quarantine issue.

“It was important to have so many successful events over the last few months, encouraging everyone to believe we have lots to look forward to in 2021.”
