Serena Speeding Into Comeback


Serena Williams is riding comeback road at a life-in-the fast lane pace.

Williams was clocked by Florida Highway Patrol speeding at 86 MPH in a 65 MPH zone near her Palm Beach Gardens home at 7:17 on Saturday morning.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion was cited for speeding and ordered to pay a $281 fine, The Blast reports with a copy of Williams' speeding ticket.

Perhaps the reigning Australian Open champion was in a hurry to get to practice.

Williams was driving a 2016 Mini Cooper and was alone at the time she was pulled over.

The former world No. 1 gave birth to her first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, on September 1st.

The 36-year-old Williams has added her name to the entry list for the Australian Open, which begins on January 15th.

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley told the media in Melbourne he is convinced Williams will try to defend her title next month.

"She has got her visa, she has entered, she's practicing, and she probably just needs a bit more space for a bigger entourage," Tiley told the media. "There is no question she will be ready in our view.

"She wants to break the record owned by Margaret Court and it would be a significant accomplishment for her to be able to do that."

Williams' coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, told CNN she has not yet made a decision on playing Melbourne.

Serena is a Mini Cooper endorser and has often driven her yellow taxi-cab styled Mini to her Miami Open matches.
