Serena Williams said, “I will cherish these upcoming few weeks.”

Venus Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam winner, identified Serena Williams as the tennis player she learned the most from. Venus Williams hosted a Q&A session with followers of her EleVen by Venus Williams Instagram account on Thursday.

Venus started a women’s-only apparel line in 2006 and frequently engages with followers on Instagram. Venus was asked to identify the athlete from whom she has gained the greatest knowledge, according Sportskeeda.

You recognize it as Serena Williams. But I enjoy seeing others and picking up tips from every player,” Venus said on her Instagram story, according Sportskeeda. Venus Williams competed in her first singles match in a year this week at the Citi Open in Washington.

Williams lost in three sets in the opening round of the Washington tournament against Rebecca Marino, who defeated the seven-time Grand Slam champion 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. Yes, this is my first game; therefore, I don’t believe I’ve played well frequently.

It has some rust on it. In the third set, I also positioned myself well. I was merely attempting to remove the rust. It was anticipated. Williams said after the defeat, “I can just play another tournament and perform better. Williams, who was playing for the first time in Washington, had a 4-1 lead in the third set before losing the next five games.

“Yes, it’s really enjoyable. I wished I could have won this match for the audience and the competition. But things aren’t always successful. A wonderful response. Tennis is played well in DC, and Mark manages the tournament superbly.

Yes, playing in DC was a lot of fun. Having the fans behind me was fantastic.

What will Serena Williams do next?

Serena Williams, who is featured on the cover of the newest issue of Vogue, posted a message on her Instagram account on Monday after winning her first match in more than a year in the first round of the WTA 1000 in Toronto. In the message, Serena makes the announcement that she will indeed retire during this 2022 season without providing a specific date.

“There is a point in life when you must choose to go in a different route. When you love something so deeply, this moment is never easy. Honestly, I adore tennis. But now the timer has started. I have to put my attention on my responsibilities as a mother, my spiritual objectives, and lastly, a different but equally captivating Serena. I’ll enjoy these upcoming weeks.
