Serena Williams: Venus and I are not ready to quit
“I have no intention of stopping and I don’t think she (Venus) does either. We’re definitely connected at the hip (in that respect),” Serena said.
“I enjoy being out there on the court so much and I’ve been having so much fun, so it’s been great.
“I love competing. I love the challenge. I love holding up trophies. So I guess if ever I feel that I can’t do that, then maybe I won’t play anymore.”
Serena Williams’ bubbly character and love of the spotlight make it hard for her to even consider walking away from a sport that allows her to be the center of attention.
“I love stepping out on that court, having that atmosphere, that moment,” she said. “That moment is all about me. Maybe it’s a little selfish, but I love that feeling.”
Asked if she would find it hard to replicate the buzz of playing at events like Wimbledon when she does eventually retire, Serena Williams said: “Probably, yeah. But you have to make adjustments, for sure. Who knows, maybe I’ll become a rockstar!”
In order to experience more moments in the spotlight, Serena Williams will have to improve significantly on her last visit to the All England Club, which ended with a last 16 defeat against Marion Bartoli.
