The 23-time Grand slam winner, Serena Williams has clarified that she hasn’t retired from tennis and there’s a chance she would make a comeback to the sport.
Back in August, the 41-year-old in an interview with Vogue said she was “evolving away from tennis”. Even though she did not confirm her retirement or the US Open being her final tournament, she was given lavish tributes before each match in New York and waved an emotional goodbye after losing in the third round to Ajla Tomljanovic.
“I am not retired,” Williams said at a conference in San Francisco while promoting her investment company, Serena Ventures.
“The chances [of a return] are very high. You can come to my house; I have a court.”
However, she did clarify that there will be no imminent tournament appearance for her as she begins the next stage of her life.
“I still haven’t really thought about [retirement],” she said.
“But I did wake up the other day and go on the court and [considered] for the first time in my life that I’m not playing for a competition, and it felt really weird.
“It was like the first day of the rest of my life and I’m enjoying it, but I’m still trying to find that balance.”
Her last major title came at the 2017 Australian Open.
