Williams says, “I’m just playing until Roger stops”

A woman is never settled in her life until she becomes a mother. Regardless of the number of Wimbledon and World Number one titles which she has won, being a mother is an eternal bliss. The American tennis legend, Serena Williams is definitely experiencing that joy. However, doesn’t perceive any reason to stop her professional career. Last month she made it to her 31st major final and exactly a year ago she was fighting for her life. “A year ago I was fighting for literally my life in the hospital after I had the baby,” she said after her semifinal win at the Flushing Meadows. “Every day I step out on this court I’m so grateful that I have an opportunity to play this sport. No matter what happens in any match, semis, finals, I just feel like I’ve already won.”

During the first Wimbledon after her marriage, very impressively she professed there that she will stay in her prolonged career until Federer does. “Oh, I’m just playing until Roger stops,” Williams said. “Well, here I am. We in it. We in it together. As long as he’s here, I’m going to try to be here.” Nevertheless, Williams unlatched about the activities post her retirement. ‘The first day, for me, is basically just binge resting. I don’t do anything. And after that, I just come back to a light gym workout and then get back to more fitness. Maybe I won’t play tennis, but I’ll keep fit’, said Williams.

Williams is a person who is made up of self-believe and self-confidence. You have to believe in yourself because a lot of times people won’t believe in you,’ she said. In addition to that, she reveals the importance of patience. “I think it’s important to have patience and speak your mind and have peace. So it’s an interesting line, a thin line, between where that peaceful sanity comes from,” said Williams.
