The tennis tour came to a halt in early March due to the outbreak of coronavirus all around the world. Consequently, it might be difficult for the tennis players to cope up with the unprecedented situation as they are used to being on the tour for almost 11 months a year. However, Former World No.1 Serena Williams seems to adapt to the situation pretty well.
Williams unveiled her daily schedule during the indefinite hiatus. She explained that she is able to run her businesses and spend time with her daughter Olympia during these tough times.
“I really try to focus on spending time with my daughter” – Serena Williams
“It’s going good. I feel good. I think I am a person that is used to a routine and used to structure. And now I don’t have it and I am just kind of thriving. But I made my own structure and routine. I have my workout now but I am training again,” said Williams on the KindredCast podcast episode.
“I am working out in the mornings and then I have my time, a small block of straight business, sole focus. And then the rest of the day I try to stay with Olympia and maybe have one more business call. But I really try to focus on spending time with my daughter. I still have a ton of structure,” she added.
Alongside spending time with her family and managing her businesses and fitness routine, the 23-time Grand Slam winner is also helping the vulnerable people during the pandemic.
Serena Williams is in the last years of her professional career. She would certainly hope to compete on the tour again soon. She is also chasing Margaret Court‘s all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles with only one Major title behind. We hope Serena is able to achieve her goal this year.
