Serena Williams is ready to officially say goodbye to tennis – or is it?
The tennis star, who recently announced his retirement from the sport, hinted when asked that there could be hope for her return to the game Jimmy Fallon if she “would pull one Tom Brady‘ and don’t retire.
“You know what? Tom Brady has started an amazing trend,” she shared on The Tonight Show on Sept. 13. “I will say that.”
Though we may have to wait and see if Serena, 40, picks up a tennis racquet again, the athlete announced in August that she was retiring from the sport after competing at the US Open.
“I’ve never liked the word retirement,” she wrote for a cover story in Vogue’s September 2022 issue. “It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I thought of this as a transition, but I want to be sensitive about how I use this word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people. Perhaps evolution is the best word to describe what I intend to do. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis and towards other things that are important to me.”
