Serena Williams reveals her father has been trying to persuade her to play again but she has no plans to return to pro tennis as she feels "it is time for her to give her life to something else." In an interview with Gayle King for CBS Mornings, Williams was asked if there was any chance of seeing her back on the Tour.
"It's hard to say. I would say no. For now, no. I've literally given my whole life to tennis, and it's time for me to give my life to something else," Williams said on CBS Mornings, per TMZ Sports. Serena's father, Richard, would like to see her daughter appear in at least two more Grand Slams.
"He's like, 'Serena you should play two more Grand Slams.' I'm like, 'Dad, stop,'" Williams revealed.
Williams: Olympia wants a sibling, I'm working on it
In 2017, Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian welcomed their first child, daughter Olympia.
Now, Williams reveals her daughter wants a sibling and she and her husband are "working on it." "Now, she prays for a sibling (laughter). I'm working on it," Williams revealed. Meanwhile, Richard Williams recently revealed his daughter told him "she could win again but just can't do it no more." "I wanted her to play at least a couple more tournaments.
She said no, she won't do it. I asked Serena about maybe six weeks ago, two months ago, probably. But she's done a great deal, she has lots of other businesses and is very successful. I said, 'Why don't you play?' She said, 'I could.
I think I could win, but I can't do it no more. Yeah, I won't do it no more,'" Richard Williams told The U.S. Sun. Williams retired after the US Open, where she made the third round before losing to Ajla Tomljanovic. Williams finished her career with 23 Grand Slams and she is widely considered among the greatest players in tennis history.
