American tennis player Serena Williams is all set to kick off her next 2016 season at the Hopman Cup in Australia. Read On!
The news has been disclosed by the organizers of Hopman Cup. Last year, the player took away the Australian and French Open titles together, reaching the semifinals of the US Open and thus ended a fabulous season.
“Perth definitely started something quite amazing. So I think it’s only natural and fair and reasonable that I go back to Perth. We were so close to winning last year. In 2016 I want to play doubles in Australia so it will be really exciting for me to get there, play some and get a little experience at the Hopman Cup”, Williams quoted.
Williams got defeated by Italian player Roberta Vinci in semi-finals of the US Open. This finally ended her bid for a rare Calendar Grand Slam.
Meanwhile, it has also been reported that Andy Murray from Britain will be seen in Perth from 3rd to 9th January. He will be playing with his partner Heather Watson.
Williams has been an outstanding player when we look at the initial years of her career. She bagged the title in 2003 where she was partnered with James Blake and then again in 2008 when she played with Mardy Fish.
Serena Williams, who has been out of form due to an injury, is all prepared to give a rocking performance in the upcoming event. As per Williams, Hopman Cup is a great opportunity to prepare for the US Open. She is all exited to get back the honor for her nation. Her fans pray for her victory, this time, 2016, will surely be a great feast for them.
