Serena Considering To Resume Career In 2023

Facing Serena

By Scoop Malinowski

Everywhere you look everybody is talking about how this US Open is the end of the illustrious career of Serena Williams. The American sporting icon is competing for the last time in New York City this week and hopefully into next week.

But Serena herself contradicted that narrative propaganda. Though she skipped doing her US Open press conference last week, the 23 time Grand Slam singles champion made an appearance on The Today Show and revealed that this may not be her swan song exit from tennis competition.

Serena was asked by one of the Today Show panelists if she was definitely finished after playing in Flushing Meadows, win, lose or draw? “I mean, I don’t know, I think so. But who knows. I don’t think (I’d play AO23) but you never know. I’ve learned in my career, never say never.”

Serena will turn 41 in September. She will play singles and also was granted a wildcard into the doubles with her sister Venus.

But why would Serena leave the door open for canceling her own heavily hyped retirement, to play again in 2023?

My only speculation is that she is feeling the best she has in many years and she feels and believes she will win this US Open title to tie Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slams and so naturally then she would like to try to break the record in January in Melbourne.
