Venus Williams has made it clear that she does not want to retire as her sister Serena Williams does. Instead, she intends to pursue a career. Venus, 42, took a year off before making a comeback last month in Washington. Venus has since participated in four matches and now has a 2022 record of 0/4.
Williams lost to Alison van Uytvanck in straight sets in the first round of the US Open. Some people believed that Venus was competing in her final competition, but it doesn’t appear that the seven-time Grand Slam winner is retiring with Serena.
“This was unquestionably a fresh first Grand Slam after returning, with new gear and a new racquet. It’s obviously a mental fight to acclimate to all these various things, “In a video posted to her YouTube page, Williams stated “What I take up from this is that you should always be psychologically ready and maintain your confidence even under the most trying conditions, which is exactly what I attempted to accomplish.
It’s important to keep moving forward, even when you fail. For me, it’s about moving forward, and this was a first step. There will be another step after this one.”
Serena Williams is honored by Venus Williams.
In her last competition, Serena advanced to the third round of the US Open before falling to Ajla Tomljanovic.
Serena may not have won the championship, but she certainly put up a strong fight to retain it.”
There is still no one who can match her level, passion, excitement, or entertainment after a year away from the game.
Serena Williams will never be replaced, but her legacy lives on in all the others she inspired to greatness, including me. Nobody has had as much of an impact on the sport or the game as she has. The GOAT of tennis won’t be the same without him “Venus made a post on Instagram.
Venus and Serena also collaborated for the US Open doubles competition, where they lost to Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova in the opening round.
