Serena Williams drops very open hint that she is still thinking about pro tennis

Serena Williams admits she misses competing "every day" but also added that she feels better when she realizes that she is not anymore required to train for at least eight hours per day. Williams, 41, ended her pro career after last year's Us Open.

"Every day I miss playing then I think about training for 8+hrs a day. It’s not that bad right?" Williams tweeted.

Before and after the US Open, Williams never completely shut down the doors on the possibility of playing again.

Because of that, some believe that there is definitely a chance of seeing Williams back in action. In mid-February, Williams admitted to "feeling torn" because she believes she "can still play at a very high level. "I for sure feel more at peace now.

It's interesting. I think I feel torn because I'm still able to play at a very, very, very high level. With that being said, I always wanted to leave the game playing at a very high level. But it's hard because it's like, 'Oh my gosh, I could still play, and I could still do all that stuff.'

But I'm inch by inch leaning away, inch by inch embracing it," Williams told E! News.

Williams: 'There's no way I shouldn't be playing right now'

In the same interview, Williams revealed that after one hit she told herself "there is no way I shouldn't be playing pro tennis." "Actually, I did play the other day, and it's just like, 'There's no way I shouldn't be playing professional tennis.

Like, there's literally no excuse.' But I mean, I guess there is an excuse, right? It's hard because when I'm playing I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm pretty good at this. I can continue to do this,' which not a lot of people can say," Williams said.

During a conversation with CBS Mornings, Williams revealed that her father Richard Williams tried to persuade her to play at least two more Grand Slams. For now, Williams has been reluctant to return to pro tennis.
