World number two Serena Williams has arrived in Sydney and will shake off the Christmas-New Year rust at the Medibank International. The American declared she was fully fit to start competing.
“I don’t think I have any hammy problems. I’m good, yeah,” said Williams, who withdrew from the Hopman Cup citing hamstring injury.
Serena also promised to reveal her new line of tennis clothes in Melbourne, where she will be fighting for her fourth Australian Open title.
