"Serena Not Australian Open Favorite" - Margaret Court

Tennis Legend Margaret Court believes Serena Williams is not a clear favorite to win the 2019 Australian Open.


Williams is the Out-right favourite to win the tournament after an impressive return since giving birth to her child.


Serena, who has 23 Grand Slams to her name, came close to equalising Court’s all-time record of 24 major tournament wins last year.


Williams suffered losses in the Wimbledon and US Open final but will be determined to equal Court in Melbourne.


However, the Australian Margaret cannot see Williams winning the season-opening Grand Slam.


“I think it’s possible for Serena to equal me, if anybody’s gonna do it, it’s Serena, but I don’t think there’s a clear-cut favourite,” Court told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper.


“I think it’s a pretty open tournament and I think an outsider can win it.


“When you’re young, you tend not to think about it too much.


“I won my first Australian championship when I was 17 and I had no nerves.


“As I went along… it became harder.”


Williams gets her campaign underway on Tuesday against Tatjana Maria.
