Any discussion about Women’s tennis will be incomplete without mentioning her name. However, the former world number once revealed that she does not love the sport. It’s strange to even imagine Serena saying this. However, this is what she said.

Serena doesn’t love tennis

In what could be called a shocking admission, back in 2012, Serena Williams revealed that she does not love tennis. In fact, she doesn’t love any sports. “I mean, I don’t love tennis today, but I’m here, and I can’t live without it. So I’m here and don’t want to go anywhere anytime soon… It’s not that I’ve fallen out of love; I’ve actually never liked sports,” she said.

Further, Serena said she hates anything that includes physical activity and would rather love sitting down or shopping. “I never understood how I became an athlete … I don’t like working out, I don’t like anything that has to do with working physically … Anything that involves sitting down or shopping I am excellent at that,” she added.

Even without interest, the legend has ruled the game, which makes us wonder what she would have done if she loved tennis.

Serena Williams to play in the National Bank Open

In what appears to be a bid for preparation for the US Open, Serena Williams is all set to feature in the National Bank Open in Toronto. The tournament is scheduled to start at the beginning of August.

After an unfortunate loss in the first round of Wimbledon Championship 2022, the former world number 1 was expected to play in the US Open. However, with this announcement, it is clear that Serena will go prepared for the Grand Slam.

Notably, the 40-year-old is sitting second on the list of most Grand Slam titles (23). If Serena manages to win the US Open she will reach the joint highest tally of 24. Although a lot depends on her fitness and form, the queen of court can always surprise us. Can Serena win the US Open? Let us know in the comments.
