Serena Williams Hints At Taking A U-Turn For Her Retirement

Tom Brady will formally surpass Muhammad Ali as the biggest trendsetter in sports if Serena Williams follows through on what she said last night. Thanks to the technology available to them, athletes can now extend their careers in the times we live in. Because of the improved care given to their bodies now, individuals can live long into their thirties and occasionally even into their forties. Since he was performing at such a high level, Tom Brady, the first player from this group that we can recall, reversed his decision and unretired.

Given that his family’s accusations have leaked to the media, he has undoubtedly received much attention. However, more and more athletes are starting to adopt this as a new trend. Veteran players in soccer include Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. Even Messi, who will be 35 when he plays for Argentina in December, has a chance to win the upcoming World Cup.

But let’s be clear: Tom Brady is in a league of his own among athletes. He is privileged in football, allowing him to play at the highest level for a little longer in the course of his career. During Serena’s final performance at the US Open, which just finished last weekend, you could see her straining.

Although we do not doubt that she can recover and continue to compete at the highest level, winning medals may be a little trickier, given the damage to her body. She has to exert much more effort than Tom Brady on the football field, which is a significant difference. Regardless, the news that Serena Williams would play another Grand Slam was exactly what we had hoped to hear following her final US Open match.

When the tennis great appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” she answered the topic of whether or not she will officially retire. Serena left the door open when Fallon himself asked if she could do a Tom Brady. She remarked, “There is so much more for me, and I feel like I’m at an age where I have a lot more to give and a lot more that I want to do.

She said, “I feel like it’s more of an evolution of Serena. There are so many things that I’ve wanted to do for so many years, and I’ve had such a passion for tennis for so long that I’ve never done them. Now it’s time for me to start to enjoy those things. Tom Brady started a notable trend. That’s all I’m going to say.”
