Venus Williams has won a wildcard entry for the 2023 Australian Open, where she has played 22 times, after a historic gap of 25 years from the year where she first participated. She has previously qualified to the final on two occasions, one of which ended in a loss to her sister Serena, who recently retired, in the 2017 edition.
