Auckland: Venus Williams says she's as fit and healthy as she has been in years and hopes to turn a dream into reality when she starts her season at the Auckland WTA tournament from Monday.

The seven-time Grand Sam winner arrived in Auckland from Los Angeles on Friday and said her aim was to reach the Auckland final.

Venus said, "The other day I dreamed I had a win and I woke up and realized I hadn't even played a round. I hope to go round by round and at least get to the finals - that would be awesome."

"I feel like I'm coming into the season as fit and healthy as I have in many years, so for me that's exciting and I have a positive outlook. My goal is to be like Serena Williams!"

The 33-year-old, who won her last final in Luxembourg in October 2012, said she had been working hard during the offseason.
