Notably, the 39-year-old American professional does not share much regarding her training sessions. Thus, fans naturally worried as she had not updated them about her tennis schedule post-Australian Open 2021 semifinal loss.

However, Serena Williams has now made it clear that she is working hard behind the scenes. In a video addressed to her most loyal fans, she also looks happy about her work done so far.

To begin with, Serena Williams showed her fans the view from the place she is staying in France. She then added that she needed to step outside to get a quick break from her three-old daughter Olympia.

Afterwards, the tennis queen opened up about her not posting her training sessions. Although her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, did share some of the clay-court practise recently.

“I like to keep things private when it comes to that aspect because I like to come on the court and be the killer that I am,” Serena said. However, as long as the eight-time Wimbledon champion continues to play, her fans would not have any complaints.

Even then, the American felt like connecting with her fans and looping them on her preparations for Roland Garros. From the looks of it, Serena is yet again excited to begin her campaign for her 24th Grand Slam title.

“RenasArmy, don’t worry about me because I work hard, very hard. And I just felt like I wanted to tell you guys that no one asked, but I just felt like RenasArmy needs to know that I am out here doing all the work just for you. I love you all,” Williams concluded. (RenasArmy is the group of Serena’s most loyal fans).
