Serena sure of regaining top spot

Serena sure of regaining top spot

Seven-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams says she has "no doubt" she will be world number one again after a string of knee and ankle injuries.
The American, who is preparing for the Australian Open, said she is confident she will reverse her injury-enforced slide to 95th in the world rankings.

"There's no doubt about it. It's just a matter of time. I'm definitely on my way," said the 25-year-old.

Williams has won the Australian Open twice, in 2003 and 2005.

The first-round draw for this year's tournament takes place on 12 January, with the tournament starting on 15 January.

Williams is preparing for the tournament by competing in the Hobart International in Tasmania, where her first-round opponent is Sweden's Sofia Arvidsson.

The Hobart International is one of several events in Australia this week which act as warm-ups for the Melbourne tournament.

Re: Serena sure of regaining top spot

maybe she has to win a couple of titles and score a couple of wins over Top10 players first to have 'no doubts'

Re: Serena sure of regaining top spot

she is pretty confident from what i'm hearing but to truly confirm that confidence she needs a lot matches & a lot of titles & top 10 wins to do that. she is capable of doing it.

As long as she stays healthy that's the only thing I have to say about this.

Re: Serena sure of regaining top spot

Well, this quote is rather open-ended, we don't even know the exact question that was asked?!

Anyway, I am psyched that she is playing again and wish her the best in Australia!!!

Re: Serena sure of regaining top spot

Serena's just stating the obvious. Of course she's going to be Number 1 again. It's a matter of when, not if. I wouldn't be surprised if she won the Australian Open. It goes without saying she's going to win Hobart.
