In a recent interview with The New York Timesthe American cleared the air about this situation by saying that she should not have set it to X. She stated emphatically that she is not coming back and had just missed playing tennis.

It wasn’t cryptic. I’m literally ready to hit balls. I haven’t hit in a long time. It’s my life, I love it and I miss it so much. I did learn not to put it on Twitter because people think I’m coming back, and I’m like, ‘No.

said Serena Williams via the New York Times

Nevertheless, the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion is enjoying his retirement and experiencing a new life outside of tennis. Even though she misses the sport, Williams is excited about the change in routines.

Never actually. I never do. Which is good, right? I had such an amazing career, and quite frankly, I should have had 30. I feel like I could have had way more than 24.

added Serena Williams

She also said that she had put too much pressure on herself, which prevented her from winning the 24th title. After a dominant career, the American suffered four defeats in Grand Slam finals in the final stages, which she could easily have converted into titles. Still, she is happy with her career and enjoying the next phase of her life.
