Speaking in the United States at the “Jimmy Fallon Night Show”, she made a parallel with another sports legend, Tom Brady, who returned to the field after announcing his farewell to football

Have you already thought about it? “Definitely maybe”, paraphrasing the first famous Oasis album. Certainly maybe. The fact is that Serena Williams had said goodbye to tennis at the US Open, between tears, emotion and hugs, but now she seems to have changed her mind. Or rather, that she can do it. “I never said the word retreat,” said Serena, who during the hugely popular “Jimmy Fallon Night Show” in the US, she hinted that a door to her return is always open. For this she used the parallelism with another sports myth, Tom Brady, the great NFL quarterback who had announced his goodbye to football, and then think again and take the field again.


“I am very happy, happy with what I am experiencing. There are a lot of things I haven’t been able to do and would like to do over the years, but I’m not going to relax, I just want to start enjoying what I haven’t been able to enjoy before – Williams said – What I mean is that you never know, I talked to Tom Brady about his story. I don’t see myself far from tennis, which has given me so much, I would like to do something but I don’t know what, I would love to stay connected to this wonderful sport. It has simply been a light in my life and I want to continue to hold it tight ”. Some malicious could say that Williams’ performance at the US Open was more than good, so much so that she beat the number two of the tournament, Estonian Kontaveit. Maybe with a little more training, she who knows.


Meanwhile, Serena gave her goodbyes to another illustrious tennis retiree, Roger Federer. “Welcome to the retirement club,” Williams said ironically, joking with the Swiss on Instagram. “I wanted to find the perfect way to say it since you’ve been so elegant about it, as has your career. I have always respected and admired you. Our paths have always been so similar, so the same. You have inspired millions of people – myself included – and we will never forget that. I applaud you and look forward to everything you do in the future. Welcome to the retirees club ”.
