When tennis legend Serena Williams retired from the sport, her fans were truly disheartened. They always wanted her to continue playing even more because she was a record-breaker and a force they had never seen before. However, after her retirement, she was rarely seen on the court again, except for maybe a few practice or leisure sessions here and there.

But recently, a picture of Serena Williams was seen in which the tennis legend was seen making her presence on a tennis court. But this time it is not a tennis racket that she has in her hands; it’s wiping equipment.

As happy as her fans would be to see Serena Williams back on the court once again, they would also be surprised to see that she is not playing on the court but cleaning it. One of her fan pages posted a video on their Instagram channel where Serena Williams herself is sweeping the tennis court because rain has clogged water into the court.

It was probably during her training or practice session when the rain started, and she had no choice but to clean it herself. However, as she was cleaning it, 5 minutes later it started to rain again, and all her hard work went in vain. In the video, she can also be seen saying, “Today drained me,” probably referring to her getting drenched in the video.

And the good part is that she is not alone in the video. Her sister Venus Williams is also helping her sweep, and even their pet dog can be seen in the background on the court. Even though fans were extremely happy to see these doubles partners on the court once again, their potential of actually being back together on the court as a team is nearly impossible, as confirmed by Venus Williams.
