Serena Williams praises Tom Brady return as she says she is ‘evolving’ not retiring




Serena Williams says she “will not be relaxing” after playing what is likely to be her final competitive tennis match, and can now find time for “things that I’ve been wanting to do for so many years”.




The 23-time grand slam champion said that her reported “retirement” from the sport was “more of an evolution of Serena” and it was time for her to explore her other passions.




The 40-year-old bowed out of the third-round of the US Open tournament earlier this month after losing in three sets to Ajla Tomljanovic.




Speaking about her tennis career on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she said: “I think retirement is something that is super earned and that people work really hard for.




“I feel like I’m at an age where I definitely have a lot more to give and there’s a lot more that I want to do so I’m not going to be relaxing, there’s so much more for me. I feel like it’s more of an evolution of Serena.”
