Just a few short months after her younger sister had her farewell tour at the US Open in New York, Venus Williams may be sending signs that her tennis career is approaching its end date.
Venus, who last played at the U.S. Open with her sister in a doubles match, posted to her Instagram Monday night with a post reflecting on her spectacular career.
“On this day 28 years ago I made my debut to professional tennis,” Williams posted. “I never imagined 28 years later what [Serena Williams] and I would experience in this sport. I can recount the wins and the losses, but in the end it was always about the pursuit of my best self. Everyday, win lose or draw. I can look back with no regrets. It’s all been worth it.”

Venus is a seven-time major champion, winning Wimbledon five times and the US Open twice in her career. The 42-year-old also has 16 doubles championships on her resume.
While Serena Williams appeared to end her competitive tennis career following the US Open in September, she recently fueled speculation about a comeback.
“I mean, you never know. I’ve just been saying that I think that Tom Brady started a really cool trend,” Williams said with a laugh while speaking with “Good Morning America.” “And the way he did. Huge.”
