‘I AM NOT RETIRED’ SERENA WILLIAMS SAYS

Serena Williams on Monday said she has not retired from tennis and that the chances of her returning are “very high” after she previously indicated that she would step away from the sport after last month’s U.S. Open.

FILE – Serena Williams, of the United States, returns a shot to Ajla Tomljanovic, of Australia, during the third round of the U.S. Open tennis championships, Friday, Sept. 2, 2022, in New York. It could have been just one night, but Williams’ exit from tennis turned into a boon for ESPN. Williams’ third-round defeat at the hands of Ajla Tomljanovic had the largest audience of any tennis match in ESPN’s 43-year history, beating the 3.9 million who watched the 2012 Wimbledon men’s final between Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
