With less than a month left for the Australian Open, Williams will aim to equal Magaret Court’s record of winning 24 Grand Slam titles. Unfortunately, Williams has lost in all her four major championship finals appearances and will hope to break the jinx.

The 39-year-old will arrive in Australia in mid-January and then will quarantine in Adelaide instead of Melbourne. As per the guidelines issued by the health authorities, players will quarantine for two weeks along with their entourage. She will be joined by her sister, Venus Williams, in the Adelaide bubble.
