Officially, Serena Williams has always left a very small glimmer of returning to compete in the WTA Tour in the near future. In one of the latest messages published on her social networks, Serena Williams confirmed that tennis remains very present in her mind and is something impossible to forget.
On Twitter, the American commented with a certain irony, also letting all fans dream and imagine something incredible: "Every day I reflect on how much I miss playing, rather than thinking about training for more than 8 hours a day.
It's not that bad, right?" she declared. There was no shortage of comments from famous people from around the world who invite her to imagine a great comeback as a professional tennis player. Here is the post published by the American, who thus attracted for a moment the attention of the whole tennis world.
Is Serena Williams' come back really possible? If it were, it would be a party for the WTA Tour, with the lack of a charismatic leader like her. However, a real return of her will be difficult. Serena should regain physical and mental fitness.
Especially physical, to compete with the youngest girls on the Tour. Serena could beat them all without any problems and on all surfaces. But she needs the tennis player of her best days, the one seen up to the 2017 Australian Open, who mercilessly devoured her opponents.
Serena, retirement and come back?
Serena Williams' career ended during the 2022 edition of the US Open, a competition in which the 41-year-old announced that she was hanging up her racket. In her last professional Grand Slam, the American put on a great show, twice postponing the last match of an extraordinary adventure on the tour.
In fact, Williams had managed to beat Danka Kovinic, then number 74 in the WTA rankings, and in the second point she had been able to overcome the second seed in the main draw, Estonian Anett Kontaveit. A historic challenge that once again demonstrated the strength of a champion.
In the third round, after another super fight, Serena then surrendered to Australian Ajla Tomljanovic. A player, winner of 23 Grand Slam titles, who made the history of this sport and brought it to a level, even of curiosity from the public, perhaps never seen before.
The last message certainly reminded all the fans that all the memories that tennis has left in Serena Williams' mind are still very present and will not be forgotten or set aside so easily.
