Serena Williams says she is 'not retired' (WATCH)

Serena Williams has stated that she is "not retired." Williams, who turned 41 in late September, said goodbye to professional tennis at the US Open. During her appearance on Disrupt, Williams spoke with Jordan Crook. When Crook told Williams she liked her using the word "evolution" instead of "retirement," Williams interrupted by stating: "I'm not retired." When asked directly whether there was a chance of seeing her play again, Williams said: "The chances are very high, you come to my house, I got a court." That moment starts at around 28:35.

After the US Open, Williams appeared on Jimmy Fallon's, The Tonight Show. During her appearance, Williams said that Tom Brady "set an amazing trend." For the record, 45-year-old Brady retired earlier this year, but has since come out of retirement.

“Tom Brady started an amazing trend. That’s what I want to say," Williams said on The Tonight Show.

Williams said she has 'always loved Australia'

Even during the US Open, Williams was hinting that she may play beyond the US Open.

After her US Open exit, Williams opened up about her love for Australia, which led to some speculating whether she could play Down Under in January. But also, Williams made it clear she wanted to explore other life things in retirement.

“I don’t know. I’m not thinking about that,” Williams answered. “I always did love Australia, though (smiling). But you know what, I’ve come a long way since last year at Wimbledon. Just not sure if that was my last moment or not.

Making it a different moment I think is much better. It takes a lot of work to get here. Clearly I’m still capable. It takes a lot more than that. I’m ready to be a mom, explore a different version of Serena. Technically in the world I’m still super young, so I want to have a little bit of a life while I’m still walking”.
