Serena Williams looked good going into the third round of the US Open.

She also seemed to really enjoy herself. So is there a chance she’s not actually retired? She hinted at it on Wednesday, citing Tom Brady’s “cool trend”.

“I mean, you never know for sure,” Williams told Good Morning America on Wednesday when asked if she could be lured back into the game. “I just said that I think Tom Brady started a really cool trend.”

That sentiment echoed her statement on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, where she told host Jimmy Fallon that Brady had started an “amazing trend.”

In case you somehow missed Brady’s “cool trend,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback announced his retirement in February without using the word “retirement.” Six weeks later, he announced that he was indeed returning to football. He made his 2022 debut for the Bucks on Sunday in a 19-3 win against the Dallas Cowboys.

Like Brady, Williams released a retirement statement in August while avoiding the word “retirement.” She then received a grand farewell during a thrilling open run in the United States, in which she defeated world No. 2 Anette Kontaveit. The competitive lights were clearly still on.

So will she be back for the Australian Open in January? Perhaps later? If so, the tennis world will obviously welcome her return with open arms.

But she doesn’t speak. For now. She made it clear that she hadn’t finished the game yet.

“Tennis has given me so much,” Williams continues. “I feel that I cannot refuse to participate in tennis in the future. I don’t know what participation is yet.

“I know that I love this sport very much. I love the game. I like everything about her. There has been so much light in my life that I definitely wish there was more to it.”
