Earlier on Wednesday, Serena Williams opened the possibility of her return to professional tennis, just days after announcing the end of her long career in the WTA.
In the last US Open, Williams announced the emotional farewell to her career that led her to be the second greatest Grand Slam winner of all time with 23, behind the 24 of the legendary Australian tennis player Margaret Court, being the younger sister of Venus the maximum winner of the four biggest tournaments of tennis in the Open Era.
Will Serena Williams return to professional tennis?
However, Serena Williams has already begun to open the possibility of a return to the courts and justly quoted Tom Brady to explain the reason why this decision could become possible.
“I mean, you never know,” Williams said. “I’ve just been saying that I think Tom Brady started a really cool trend.”
Both Serena Williams and Tom Brady have shown mutual respect and admiration for each other and both have had careers that have exceeded two decades in length, however, according to the American tennis player’s own words, the one who is really to blame for trying to make her regret is a woman who has an even longer career.
Venus Williams’ pressure to convince Serena
“She (Venus Williams) is not done yet,” Serena Williams said. “This is just me. … She’s trying to get me, and I’m like, ‘No.'”
The Williams sisters played doubles together at the last U.S. Open and were eliminated in the first round, but Serena knows her relationship with tennis won’t end even if she stops playing professionally.
“Tennis has given me so much, and I feel like there’s no way that I don’t want to be involved in tennis somehow in the future,” Serena Williams said. “I don’t know what that involvement is yet, but I do know that I love the sport so much, I love the game, I love everything about it. It’s just been such a light in my life that I definitely want to keep some sort of (role).”
