Serena Williams teases return to competitive tennis, says Tom Brady ‘started a really cool trend’

Serena Williams has revealed the reason why she chose to return to the top of the game by announcing a return to competitive tennis and giving a boost to the women’s game.

Williams said she had to give up her world number one ranking because of her husband’s medical condition, but now she is re-uniting with a very different partner – Tom Brady.

She revealed the former NFL quarterback made a huge impact on her life by making her go back to playing tennis and giving her a much-needed boost in a time when she needed one.

‘I was losing the hunger and the drive that I had when I was younger,’ she said. ‘I needed to get that back.

Serena Williams is preparing for her return to compete on the tour

‘Tom Brady and I started a really cool trend and he supported me and this is when I realised I need to go back playing tennis. It wasn’t about the rankings I needed to go back and give myself a chance.

‘I knew I had to get that back and so I did it. I love to compete and I love to win.

‘I love to play tennis and I love to play the game. So I did what felt better for me. It also felt like a good opportunity, I think for all of the women who are watching.’

Williams, who is training twice a week in order to be ready to compete at Wimbledon, believes the sport is growing in popularity.

‘I think women need to understand that tennis is a game for men as well,’ she said. ‘That’s another point of view that people don’t often think about. So I think women have been missing out, too.’

Williams, 52, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2014 and was told a year later that it had returned and spread through her body.

She has since announced she is cancer-free, saying she has given up her hopes of competing at Roland Gar
