After weeks of denial that he will not return, Brady has made a U-turn and is now returning for his 23rd season, just 6 weeks after ending his illustrious career. The five-time Super Bowl MVP shared a message on his official Twitter account saying he's been considering his decision for the past two months and is now back on "unfinished business."

Venus, who recently made an appearance on the 'Keep Going Podcast', expressed his admiration for the NFL great and hailed his accomplishments saying the consistency with which he played at the top level was second to none. It was therefore not surprising to see the visible pleasure of Venus on Brady's U-turn on his retirement.

"  I can't tell you how big a fan I am. I can't watch the game, his games are a little too nervous. So we have some of the same team members and I'm just like I'm a huge fan and I don't know whether to tell him or not, but just a huge fan and I respect what he's done so much. she said in a previous interview.

As for Venus, her return to action is still unclear. Her last match was at the 2021 WTA Chicago Fall Tennis Classic in August, during which she suffered a second-round exit against Su Wei Hsieh. As a result, she dropped in the rankings and is now ranked 1421st. Williams had to pull out of the Australian Open this year and said she is still recovering from her injury. However, Venus has proclaimed that she is committed to making a comeback, but hasn't specified a timeline yet.

“More than anything, I am, guess what I am preparing to resume the tour. I can't wait,"  she said in an Instagram Q&A last month, but has yet to give an update on that.
