Serena Williams said on Tuesday that she is “evolving away from tennis” as she hinted at retiring from tennis.
The 40 years old American has dominated the sport for years with 23 singles Grand Slam titles won in her career.
“I have never liked the word retirement,” Williams wrote in a Vogue article.
“It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition but I want to be sensitive about how I use that word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people.
“Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me.”
