“I had a rough journey, I did not start well,” Serena Williams opens up on her personal journey
In a recent interview with the Insider, Serena Williams said, “King Richard’ had a perfect ending with Venus on the tennis court. Venus goes in her direction, and I go in my direction. It’s two completely different stories. I had a rough journey. I didn’t do well, and then I did. It’s a lot of drama. It’s a telenovela.”
Both Venus and Serena Williams have not featured in this year’s tour. Both the Williams sisters are yet to play a game this year but there are signs of a comeback, especially from Serena. The 40-year-old who is an icon in tennis has not featured since getting injured in last year’s Wimbledon when he withdrew from the first round due to a leg injury.
Similarly, Venus Williams has also not played for a long time since last August when she was last seen in action in Chicago. However the 41-year-old denied a wildcard at the Australian Open as he revealed that she was not fit enough to feature. While there was news of her retirement, Venus Williams has rubbished all that and has hinted a return to action.
