Venus Williams was vague about her future after her latest first-round exit from a Grand Slam tournament, saying she was "not looking forward yet" to 2021.
With her 6-4, 6-4 loss to Slovakia's Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, the 40-year-old Williams bowed out of a Grand Slam event in the first round for a third time this year, after doing so at the Australian Open and U.S. Open.
The No. 76-ranked Williams has lost eight of nine matches this year, with her only win coming over eventual U.S. Open finalist Victoria Azarenka in Lexington, Ky.
“It's been a very long year of quarantine,” she said. “Now I'll get to rest. So I'm looking forward to that.
"I'm going home from here. I'm done. If there is somewhere to play, I won't be there."
As for her future plans, she added: “I just stepped off the court. So even though it hasn't been a ton of tournaments, it's still been a very long year. So, yeah, I'm not looking forward yet.”
Venus Williams Bought a $9.6 Million Resort-Style Home in Florida
Tennis star Venus Williams is the proud owner of a luxury Florida home that is nothing short of a dream and it came with a hefty price tag. Here is everything we know about the resort-style retreat.
Last year, tennis superstar Serena Williams and her sister Venus co-listed their Palm Beach area property that they had owned for nearly two decades. The property was priced at $2.7 million then.
Two months later, Venus set her eyes on a considerably larger residence that was built like a resort. It was everything that one could ever dream of, and the tennis champ readily made it her own after paying a whopping $9.6 million.
