Tennis is taking a break from the tour as countries world over try to contain the growing menace of the coronavirus. Tennis players are not really used to long breaks; the season lasts about 11 months in a year. Serena Williams, who is usually one of the busiest person in the world, finds herself with a ton of time on her hands.

Williams started the season with one objective- win her record-equaling 24th Grand Slam once and for all. She started the year well, winning the ASB Classic in Auckland. However she suffered a disappointing loss to Qiang Wang in the round of 32.

Williams then participated in the Fed Cup with USA. After winning her first rubber, she lost the second one to Anastasija Sevastova, which was her first ever loss in the event.

She will of course continue her campaign for the next Major, but it remains to be seen if the rest of the Grand Slams will take place this year.

Serena Williams reveals her plan

The coronavirus pandemic has truly shaken society. Suspension of most sporting events was simply not avoidable after a point. After the cancelation of two elite level events in two weeks, the season has been suspended for six weeks.

So what is Serena Williams going to do with her newfound spare time?

Serena has been quite the busy bee with her business commitments. She even served as a guest judge on the popular TV show Project Runway this week. She is a fashion icon across the globe, so it is hardly too surprising.

And now, Williams will get a taste of being a normal person in the following six weeks. With no tennis to be played in the next weeks, she is looking forward to doing everyday chores like cooking cleaning and more.

She also mentions being a mom, but let’s be honest, she has always been quite a doting mother to Alexis Olympia.

Looks like Williams won’t really be left bored without tennis. Well, I can’t say the same for me or countless other tennis fans. Now we have to do all our daily chores as usual, except without any tennis to keep us happy.
