Trainer Rick Macci reveals that Serena Williams and Venus Williams used to say “thank you” after every workout. Macci, who was Serena and Venus’s coach during their childhood, is regarded as someone who played a pivotal role in the early development of the Williams sisters.
Later, the Williams sisters became all-time tennis greats, and Macci appeared on “King Richard.” “The most important quality I remember about @serenawilliams and @Venuseswilliams was that every night after practice they said thank you (goat emoji),” Macci tweeted.
In her appearance on CBS Mornings, Serena, 41, confirmed that she had no plans on her part to return to professional tennis. In addition, Serena revealed that her father Richard tried to persuade her to play at least two more Grand Slams.
“It’s hard to say. I would say no. For now, no. I’ve literally given my whole life to tennis, and it’s time I dedicated my life to something else. He tells me: ‘Serena, you should play two more Grand Slams’ And I: ‘Dad, stop it,'” Williams said on CBS Mornings.
Venus, 42, meanwhile, kicked off her 2023 season at the Auckland ASB Classic, where he suffered a hamstring injury. In her last YouTube post, Venus revealed that she knew it was going to be a serious injury the moment she got injured.
Venus is currently undergoing rehabilitation and has hinted that she plans to return “sooner rather than later.” “I think my next step is to get to a point where I feel confident in my body again, I definitely need to get my confidence back in it and I will, God willing.
I will take you with me on this journey, back to health , back to tennis, I hope. I hope sooner rather than later, I don’t know exactly when, but I’ll let you know,” said Venus Williams in her last upload to YouTube. Serena Williams was number one in the world, a player who marked an era in tennis and who had a huge influence on the new generations of the game.
Serena is the GOAT
“I am a happy person. I love to laugh, I’m passionate about being happy and I love to crack jokes,” says Serena Williams. I love bringing that into my life. In such a physically demanding race that requires as much dedication as mine, athletes need time to relax and enjoy themselves”, explained the youngest of the Williams.
“As athletes, we do so many things and work so hard, that sometimes I’m guilty of not always enjoying titles and things like that. Although I will definitely start playing golf when I have time, hopefully very soon! I love to read, but since I got Olympia I don’t think I’ve even been able to read a book.
I love going to the movies, it’s what I like the most. It helps me to disconnect”, confessed Serena Williams.
