Serena Williams will make her return to the Australian Open for the first time since winning in January previous year despite being eight weeks pregnant.

Her latest women's singles title - again against Venus - came in 2017, when she was eight weeks pregnant with her daughter, Alexis.

Her final match last season was the final at Flushing Meadow, where her loss to Naomi Osaka was overshadowed by her row with umpire Carlos Ramos.

Williams backed out of the 2018 Australian Open, however, due to insufficient preparation time after her pregnancy.

A 23-time Grand Slam victor, Williams is no stranger to the Australian Open.

Her participation at the Jan 14-27 Grand Slam was announced by tournament officials yesterday. Before the Open, Serena's year had been headlined by her return to full-time tennis, with the veteran appearing at the French Open and Wimbledon.

Annual endorsements of around €19million ensured she is the world's highest paid female athlete and has been for the last three years, according to Forbes, with a net worth in the region of $180m. Her husband is also a self-made millionaire, believed to be worth around $9m as one of the co-founders of discussion website Reddit.

Nearly all of the world's top 100 men and women's players are also due at Melbourne Park, including Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.

World No. 1 Simona Halep heads up the women's field and Novak Djokovic, seeking his record seventh Australian Open title, is the No. 1-ranked male player.

Also among the 102 women and 101 men to have confirmed they will compete in the first grand slam of 2019 is five-times runner up Andy Murray, who missed three of the four majors a year ago because of a hip injury.
