The Tennis Scholar Serena Williams declared her alleged “retirement” from tennis in a fashion editorial interview with the Vogue team.

The Star acknowledged that she had avoided talking about retirement in the past, even when speaking with her husband.

On an account of an experience when my 5-Years old daughter was asked, what she wanted to be in future.

She echoed “I want to be a big sister” to an interactive robot app on her phone. Finally, it was obvious to me that I needed to make it a dream come through for her.

In her words, “I’ve been reluctant to admit that I have to move on from playing tennis. It’s like a taboo topic. It comes up, and I start to cry. I think the only person I’ve really gone there with is my therapist”.

in the interview, Serena Williams describes herself as a tough competitor, even on the court. She views the tennis court as a place where she can let all her concerns and problems go, feel like a beast, and score all her goals.

I always accompany my sister Venus to the court, and that motivated me . I was more fired up to take this as a career when someone called me a shadow of Venu, She said.

If I said I didn’t want that record, I’d be lying. Of course, I do, but the fact that I showed up 23 times is all that mattered to me, she added.
