Serena Williams “absolutely”
intends to surpass Margaret Court’s
record of 24 grand slam titles and
believes being a new mother can
help her achieve that goal.
The 36-year-old, who gave
birth to her first daughter Alexis
Olympia in September, decided to
pull out of the Australian Open
following concerns over her ability
to make an impact in Melbourne.
Williams won the last of her 23
grand slams in Australia last year,
defeating her sister Venus in the
final when, it would later emerge,
she was in the early stages of her
The American former world
No 1 had returned to the court on
December 30 at the World Tennis
Championship in Abu Dhabi,
where she lost an exhibition match
against Jelena Ostapenko, the 2017
French Open champion.
Despite admitting she was “not
where I personally want to be” in
announcing her withdrawal from
the Australian Open, which starts
on January 15, Williams told Vogue
she was determined to return to a
competitive level sooner rather
Williams also revealed she
suffered a health scare after giving
birth, saying she “spent the first six
weeks of motherhood unable to get
out of bed” due to small blood clots
in her lungs.
“Maybe this goes without saying,
but it needs to be said in a powerful
way: I absolutely want more grand
slams. I’m well aware of the record
books, unfortunately. It ’s not a
secret that I have my sights on 25,
and actually, I think having a baby
might help,” Williams told the
February edition of the magazine.

Wellington Phoenix coach Darije Kalezic
is slowly coming to terms with the New
Zealand perspective as he begins the
challenging process of lifting his team from
the bottom of the A-League ladder.
The Nix recorded just their second win of
the season in Wellington on Wednesday,
edging 10-man Melbourne Victory 2-1 at a
chilly, rain-swept Westpac Stadium.
The home team had their job simplified
after eight minutes, when Victory defender
Rhys Williams was red-carded for his tackle
on Andrijia Kaludjerovic as the Serbian
striker broke through on goal.
Yet they still managed to trail 1-0 at
half-time, thanks to a swift finish on the
counterattack from former Phoenix fan
favourite Kosta Barbarouses.
Roy Krishna equalised in the 64th minute
after Melbourne goalie Lawrence Thomas
fumbled Nathan Burns’s bullet strike.
Wellington secured the win in the 83rd
minute through a Mark Milligan own goal.
It was not the most convincing of wins but
the Phoenix unleashed 28 shots on goal to
Melbourne’s three, with nine on target to the
Happy to finally notch up a second victory
Kalezic was philosophical about the lopsided
“After I think 26 or 27 or 30 shots on the
goal, we score two goals and we deser ved to
win,” he said.
“I cannot be any more frustrated, is no
space to be more frustrated in my brain. Like
people in New Zealand, let ’s say that my glass
is also half full and not half empty because
that is the mentality of the people here and I
have to think the same.”
With the season now more than half over,
Wellington are still last on the ladder with
two wins, four draws and eight losses.
They lie three points behind ninth-placed
Brisbane, and eight astray of Western Sydney,
who drew 1-1 with Adelaide United on
Wednesday and sit sixth on the ladder.

Lima Sopoaga has confirmed that he
will be leaving New Zealand at the end
of the 2018 season.
According to multiple reports, the All
Blacks and Highlanders first-five eighth
has signed a two-year deal with English
Premiership side Wasps.
The deal, reportedly worth an excess
of $1 million a season, would effectively
rule the 26-year-old out of next year’s
Rugby World Cup in Japan.
In an emotional post on Instagram,
Sopoaga said that the decision to leave
was “one of the hardest decision” he’s
ever had to make.
“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce
that my family and I will be leaving NZ
at the end of the 2018 season,” Sopoaga
wrote in a post on Instagram.
“It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve
ever had to make but is one I’m at peace
with. I have loved every minute of being
a professional footballer here in NZ, I’ve
made life long friends and memories that
I’ll cherish forever. I ’d like to thank the
Highlanders, All Blacks, Southland and
Wellington for the awesome experiences
you have provided me with over the
years. Thank you to all the fans for your
support it’s been one heck of a ride. To
my team-mates and coaches over the
years thank you for everything, I’ve been
blessed to have met so many top men.
“Last but not least to my family and
friends you know who you are the ones
who have stood by me through the
lowest of lows and the highest of highs
you have seen both the valleys and the
peaks, thank you will never be enough!
So here’s to 2018 one last roll of the dice
before I head off to experience life on
the other side of the world. I’m ready.”
