Venus Williams reveals her current status as tennis fans want her back in action

Former world No. 1 Venus Williams hasn't closed the door on a potential return to tennis as she said she is currently "incubating" when asked when she will be back in action. Williams, 41, hasn't played since August and her fans daily ask her through her social media when she plans to return to action.

This week, Serena Williams confirmed she plans to compete at Wimbledon. With Serena Williams back, tennis fans now want to know about Venus Williams' plans. During a conversation with Erin Andrews at BIO2022, Venus Williams suggested she is taking her time and that she will eventually return.

"I'm still in the incubator," Venus Williams said. "It's (the break) made me appreciate it much more, I have a new love for the game, it's so much fun and I cannot wait to see her and support her."

Venus Williams on watching her sister Serena

To no one's surprise, Venus Williams gets nervous and anxious while watching her sister Serena compete in Grand Slam finals.

Serena Williams is a big-time player, who thrives on the biggest stage, but still Venus Williams feels the stress every time she watches her sister in a Major final. "Nerve-racking. There will be times when I want to sleep through her final so I can just wake up because I'm nervous," Venus Williams said.

"I will wake up anyway and I'm checking the scores, freaking out, all kinds of things. I don't know why I can't get used to it because my hopes and dreams are with her, too, you know?" Meanwhile, Serena Williams is set to return to action next week in Eastbourne, where she plans to team up with Ons Jabeur.

After playing in the Eastbourne doubles event, Serena Williams will compete at Wimbledon. This week, Wimbledon awarded Serena Williams a main draw wildcard into the tournament.
