American tennis legend Serena Williams had film crews to follow almost his every move on and off the pitch during the Australian Open.
But the 23-time Grand Slam champion was being kept under wraps when asked during tonight’s pitch interview if a second documentary about her extraordinary life and career was in the works.
Great and Nine Tennis commentator Jim Courier prompted Williams for an on-court interview after her quarter-final victory over second-seeded Romanian Simona Halep at Rod Laver Arena.

Courier wanted to know if the second season of Being Serena was in the planning, and although Williams suggested that the development of another documentary was underway, the 39-year-old gave very few additional details.
“There could be (another documentary coming up), there could be,” Williams told Courier.
“There could be something in the works, on the bottom, on the bottom.
“We’re just trying to decide how best and how best to publish it, but we see, we see.”
The first season of Being Serena was released in 2018 and offered a gripping glimpse into Williams’ life and career across five episodes.
The seven-time Australian Open winner beat Halep 6-3 6-3 in tonight’s quarter-finals to set up a salivating duel in the semifinals with world No.3 Japanese star Naomi Osaka, who won the Melbourne Grand Slam in 2019.
Williams will match former Australian tennis champion Margaret Court in 24 Grand Slam tournaments if she wins this year’s Australian Open title.
The greatest player of the Open era praised Osaka during her on-court interview with Courier.
“She’s such a strong player on the pitch and she’s such an inspiring person off the pitch which I find really cool,” said Williams.
“It’s so good to see someone who is so inspiring about both things, when they’re doing their job or not doing their job. It’s really cool for me.
“I looked at her and I’m sure she looked at me and I feel like this is a great opportunity for me to keep doing my best.
“It’s my first Grand Slam of the year and I’ve had an incredibly long and arduous offseason. So I’m really happy with every win I get.”
