Serena Williams discussed if she would ever return from retirement like Tom Brady did earlier this year as she transitioned away from tennis. See her unexpected response below.

Serena Williams is prepared to formally retire from tennis, or is she? When asked by Jimmy Fallon if she would “do a Tom Brady” and unretire, the tennis player who had only recently declared her retirement from the sport hinted that there could be a chance for her comeback.

“You know what? Tom Brady started an amazing trend. That’s what I’m gonna say.” She shared.

Serena, 40, stated in August that she was quitting tennis after playing in the U.S. Open, so it’s possible that we’ll have to wait and see whether she picks up a racquet once more.

“I have never liked the word retirement. It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition, but I want to be sensitive about how I use that word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people. Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me.” Serena wrote.

Serena admitted that she wasn’t thrilled about the change in her career but that she preferred to concentrate on other aspects of her life, such as growing her family and running her venture capital firm Serena Ventures. Serena and husband Alexis Ohanian have a 5-year-old daughter named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

“In the last year, Alexis and I have been trying to have another child, and we recently got some information from my doctor that put my mind at ease and made me feel that whenever we’re ready, we can add to our family. I definitely don’t want to be pregnant again as an athlete. I need to be two feet into tennis or two feet out.” The four-time gold medallist in the Olympics continued.
