On her Instagram story, Venus Williams decided to have a Q&A session. One of her fans asked her if she would continue to play tennis after the coronavirus is contained. She replied, “Yeah. No Doubt. God Willing I’m going to be hitting this ball for a while.”

This statement from Venus shows that she still has the motivation to play tennis even though she is going to be 40 this year. But what is motivating her to continue playing? The answer is probably another grand slam title to finish her career in the most amazing way.

Venus has not won a Grand Slam since the 2008 Wimbledon, where she beat her sister Serena 7-5 6-4. That is quite a long time which is why she will want to lift another Major title. It is also, possibly, why she is still playing tennis even though she is almost 40 years old.

Venus will have to wait for a while to win another Slam, though, as the coronavirus pandemic has suspended the WTA Tour. The Tour is scheduled to return in July but that is assuming that the coronavirus is contained by then. With the virus still spreading rapidly, it not likely we will see tennis by July.

Despite this, we all must stay positive and hope that the virus does not spread further so that we can see some tennis again. Venus will certainly be hoping for that and hopefully, when the Tour returns, she will finally win a Grand Slam again.
