Serena Williams has arrived in Sydney and declared herself fully fit ahead of the start of her summer campaign at the 2009 Medibank International Sydney.

After battling a hamstring strain late last season, the American superstar said she had made a full recovery and rated her hamstring as “excellent”.

“I don’t think I have any hammy problems. I’m good, yeah,” she told a throng of reporters at Sydney airport today.

I don't like the sound of this. Every time the sisters declare themselves 100% good to go before a tournament they tend to bomb. More often, when they come into a tourney as the underdogs or not 100% they tend to go far.
I hope Serena loses early in Sydney so that her cockiness is tamed a bit and she fully commits to Melbourne.

Serena Williams has arrived in Sydney and declared herself fully fit ahead of the start of her summer campaign at the 2009 Medibank International Sydney.


After battling a hamstring strain late last season, the American superstar said she had made a full recovery and rated her hamstring as “excellent”.


“I don’t think I have any hammy problems. I’m good, yeah,” she told a throng of reporters at Sydney airport today.

The three-time Australian Open champion climbed back to the top of the women’s rankings for a brief period last year but finished the season ranked at No.2 behind Serbian Jelena Jankovic.


Williams, who pulled out of this week’s Hopman Cup in Perth with a hamstring injury, has set her sights on reclaiming the No.1 ranking in 2009.


“I am. I’m close,” Williams said.


“I’m just looking forward to playing in the tournament here.”


Williams returned to the Grand Slam winner’s list in 2008 with victory at the US Open and is returning to Sydney for the first time in seven years to kick start her 2009 campaign.


Among her major rivals in Sydney will be three Russians - world No.3 Dinara Safina, Beijing Olympic champion Elena Dementieva and 2008 finalist Svetlana Kuznetsova.


The nine-times grand slam champion said her summer preparation had been “good and it’s positive, very positive”.


Renowned also for her striking tennis fashion, Williams was asked if she was ready to unleash her latest apparel upon Australian audiences.


“Always,” she said.


“It wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t.”


The Medibank International Sydney gets underway at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre on Sunday 11 January.
