Serena Williams: ‘Tiger Woods is one of the main reasons I still play’

Serena Williams, once again surprising Wednesday night against Anett Kontaveit (7-6, 2-6, 6-2) in the second round of the US Open, continues to push back the hour of retirement. The American, who returned to competition this summer at the age of 40, revealed at a press conference that she had been pushed to take up the racket by … Tiger Woods. ” He’s one of the reasons I’m here, one of the main reasons I’m still playing. We talked a lot. He was really trying to motivate me. We were like, ‘Okay, we can do this together.'”

Woods, also returning to competition this year at 46, was present in the clan of the six-time winner of the US Open on Wednesday. ” It was good to have Tiger Woods, because I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was just lost, I was asking myself so many questions. When you can count on someone like that… I mean, my God, it’s Tiger Woods! He helped me see things more clearly. Serena Williams will try to continue her New York romance on Friday against Ajla Tomljanovic.
