Tennis player Serena Williams hinted at her comeback to the tennis world after her retirement. We all have moments where we have seen our favorite sports players retiring. We always used to wonder why they were doing this, why not more? But later, fans were able to understand why it is so.
A sports career is a lot more about constant practice, hardships, undaunted focus, and new challenges every day than just enjoying fame. Most players nowadays are taking breaks after playing for a couple of years.
As an audience, we never know whether the breaks are permanent or they are going to come back later. But the number is increasing. The majority of the players are now more likely to come back to their careers with more power, more energy, and, yes, with a brand new self.
We are not saying this. The fans have felt this too! Talking about Serena Williams, she is one of those players, who also made up her mind to leave her glamorous career behind and just relax.
But something happened to another player that inspired Serena to not leave the career she built by working hard for all these years!
It was none other than the famous American football player Tom Brady, who returned to his career even after he decided not to play anymore.
Moreover, Serena said that Tom Brady had started a good trend of coming back to careers in such a grand way. She also praised him for inspiring her not to give up yet!
“Yeah, you know, I do. I feel like tennis has given me so much, and I feel like there’s no way I don’t want to be involved in tennis somehow in the future. I don’t know what that involvement is yet.” (Source: Fox News)
It is clearly visible from her speech that she is not at all interested in leaving her career. Everything that she is doing has a different purpose. It means more than anything to her. And even if she does, it will always be for the betterment. It will always be a step to come back again stronger.
Furthermore, Serena also added that the moment she decided that she would no longer be continuing and announced her retirement. She was going through an emotional rollercoaster. She said that it was something that she would never forget.
Tennis was all she had ever asked for, and she got it. It does not matter if she plays or not. It would always be an integral part of her life.
