It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
If the U.S. tennis icon gives the singles a shot, he will resume his quest to win a record-breaking 24th singles Grand Slam title.
The last time Williams went on the court in the opening round of last year’s Wimbledon tournament was when he retired with an injury during the seventh game of the match against Belarusian Aliakasandra Sasnovich.
He was crushed in the right thigh in the fifth game and after slipping again in the seventh game, he broke down in tears and stood up and retired in front of the reception.
Williams said on Instagram at the time that he was “heartbroken” and “the court meant the world to me”.
He has won seven singles major titles at Wimbledon, seven at the Australian Open, six at the US Open and three at the Roland-Garros.
Margaret Court of Australia is the only person, male or female, to have won 24 singles titles.
Williams won Wimbledon in 2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2016.
She competed in the 2018 finals and 2019 determinants after the birth of a child.
The preliminary set of wild cards for singles and doubles at this year’s All England Club Tournament will be announced on Wednesday.
