Since this year’s Wimbledon, Serena’s potential retirement news has been one of the most trending topics across the sporting arena, which eventually saw the reality following the last Grand Slam of 2022, the US Open.
Despite calling off professional tennis due to family reasons, Serena Williams comeback hint is now catching the attention of many, including a few Hollywood celebrities.
How did Serena Williams comeback hint appear in the spotlight?
Serena Williams gave Bradley Cooper the impression that she wouldn’t be averse to resuming to the sport of professional tennis less than a month after she competed in what was widely assumed to be her last tennis event at the U.S. Open and at the weekend’s A+E Networks and the History Channel’s History Discussions in Washington, D.C., the tennis great and his sister Venus Williams sat down with actor Bradley Cooper to discuss their experiences in the entertainment industry.
After Serena declared last month that she would be retiring from tennis to concentrate on her family, Cooper, 47, interviewed her and inquired as to her retirement plans. The 23-time Grand Slam winner played her last match in the U.S. Open in September and this American legend then said, “I always said I wanted to stop when I’m playing really good tennis and winning and beating good players, for me, it’s really about things I want to do spiritually and spending time with my daughter and family.”
On September 2, at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Serena lost what was very certainly going to be the last match of her storied career as Ajla Tomljanovi of Australia prevailed over the 23-time Championship winner in a match that went the distance and included three tough sets of play.
During her interview after the match, Serena grew emotional as she praised her parents, notably her dad Richard Williams, who was the main character in the film King Richard, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Serena’s retirement plan mostly involved family issues as she openly discussed her intention to give more time to her kid, Olympia, and husband Ohanian, which she has not done for the last few years.
After a few days, however, in response to a question from Jimmy Fallon about whether or not she would ever “do a Tom Brady like comeback” and ultimately come out of retirement, Serena gave the impression that there was a chance that she may make a return to the sport.
