On Wednesday, the American legendary tennis player Venus Williams will be turning 40. She’s arguably the oldest player on the WTA Tour and with her incessant longevity, she aspires to win more Grand Slams.
Former World Number one Venus has no plans to hang her racquets. Tennis experts are predicting about her retirement, but the American has an innate desire to accomplish a few more records on the tennis circuit.
“I don’t think I was going to retire there at all,” she told Tennis Majors. “But we basically missed a year so we’ll see what happens.”
The unexpected suspension of the tour amid the pandemic might give her a boost to do well as she has got enough time to work on her shortcomings. Also, amalgamating all her experience, fitness, and skills she can do wonders on the circuit.
“(I will) Probably not play as long as I’ve already played. Let’s put it that way. I will not be like 80 on the court unless there’s like a circuit for me. I can play padel or something. Outside of this, I don’t know. We’ll see how I feel. When you’re over it you’re over it.”
Seven-time Grand Slam champion has been on the WTA Tour for the past 26 years. She has won a mammoth number of 49 singles titles, also she has been phenomenally successful in the doubles domain of tennis. However, this year, Venus Williams hasn’t won any matches on WTA Tour. She last won a match at China Open 2019 against Barbora Strycova.
The US Open 2020 will be taking place as per schedule. It’s Venus’ favorite and home Slam. She’s expected to participate in the event, but her fans won’t be there LIVE to cheer her up. As the US Major will be taking place behind the closed doors. Last year World Number 67 Williams lost to Elina Svitolina in the second round of the New York Slam.
