Tennis legend Serena Williams has opened the door to a return to competition after retiring from the last U.S. Open.
Twice recently, during appearances on American television, she mentioned Tom Brady.
“You never know. I'm just saying I think Tom Brady started a really 'cool' trend,” Williams told ABC's Good Morning America.
The 23-title holder of the Grand Slam refers to the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who announced his retirement last winter before changing his mind to finally play a 23rd season in the NFL in 2022.
Williams has decided to put his racket away a few weeks ago and officially retire after the fourth major tournament of the season. She played her last match in the third round of this one, dropping the flag to Australian Ajla Tomljanovic.
The American, however, intends to remain involved in her sport.
“ Tennis has given me so much and I feel like there's no way I won't be involved in the sport in some way in the future, the wife of 40 years. I don't know yet what this involvement will be, but I know that I love the sport enormously. I love the game. I love everything about it. It's been such a light in my life that I really want to keep myself involved in it.”
