Serena Williams teases tennis fans as she says ‘I’m not retired’


Serena Williams continues to tease tennis fans about whether they’ll see her on court again, this time saying she’s “not retired” from the sport.

Williams, considered by many to be the greatest player of all time, announced that she would be “getting away from tennis” after this year’s US Open, adding that she “never liked the word retirement”.

In a brief return to the sport last year, the 23-time Grand Slam champion finished in singles at Wimbledon, the National Bank Open, the Western & Southern Open and at the US Open, where she was knocked out by Ajla Tomljanović in the third round. .

Speaking at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco to promote Serena Ventures, her investment company, Williams, 41, said: “I’m not retired… The odds are very high [of playing again]. You come to my house, I have a court.

Last month, in an interview on Good Morning America, Williams said “you never know” about a return to competitive tennis and explained how NFL quarterback Tom Brady had “started a really cool trend “.

Brady, 45, said he was retiring from the NFL in February, only to reverse that decision and continue his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season.

As part of her plan to “get away from tennis,” Williams said she would be spending more time with her family, while pursuing her business interests and charity ambassador roles.
