Serena will make a comeback this year and her older sister Venus will retire- Coach Rick Macci
Former coach of the Williams sisters, Rick Macci, has predicted that Serena will make a comeback this year and her older sister Venus will retire.
Serena and Venus were coached by Macci as children, between 1990 and 1995, before their father Richard Williams took over as their coach entirely.
Macci who has also coached other former number one players including Andy Roddick, Jennifer Capriati and Maria Sharapova, says the 23 times grand slam champion Serena Williams is still hungry for more success and believes she is not yet ready to step away.
Venus on the other hand, he explained, will play the US open doubles with Serena this summer before bidding farewell to the sport.
Serena has not played since last year’s US Open, where she announced she would be ‘evolving away from tennis.
The 2023 Us Open runs from August 28 to September 10 in New York.
