Serena Williams does not appear to have retiring from tennis just yet.

The athlete, who had said that this year’s US Open would be her last match, has suddenly indicated that she may make a comeback.

“I am not retired,” Williams said at a conference in San Francisco while promoting her investment company, Serena Ventures, per Reuters. She added that the chances of a return to the court “are very high.”

“You can come to my house, I have a court,” she then joked.

In an article she penned this August, Williams, 41, previously revealed that she would be retiring from tennis. In it, she said that while she had loved spending much of her life at the top of the tennis world, she now wanted to put more of her attention on her family and grow as a person.

Williams offered an emotional farewell to the audience after losing to Ajla Tomljanovi at the US Open on September 2. However, she never said it was her final match, leaving fans to wonder whether she would do a Tom Brady and come out of retirement.

Williams stated during the press conference that it did not feel normal for her to not prepare for a tournament following the US Open match.

“I still haven’t really thought about (retirement),” she said. “But I did wake up the other day and go on the court and (considered) for the first time in my life that I’m not playing for a competition, and it felt really weird. It was like the first day of the rest of my life and I’m enjoying it, but I’m still trying to find that balance.”
