Serena Williams has taken to Twitter to give fans an update on her life after retirement.

“I’m currently allowing myself to be tired,” she recently wrote. “Allowing myself To relax. Allowing myself to just be. It’s harder than I ever imagined. I’ve never allowed myself to do any of that before…”

In August 2022, Williams announced she was retiring from tennis in an emotional Vogue essay. “I have never liked the word retirement,” she told the outlet at the time. “It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition, but I want to be sensitive about how I use that word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people. Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me. A few years ago, I quietly started Serena Ventures, a venture capital firm. Soon after that, I started a family. I want to grow that family.”

She added at the time, “I’m going to miss that version of me, that girl who played tennis. And I’m going to miss you.”

In September, she played her last professional match — the 2022 US Open.
