Serena Williams is still pursuing her 24th Grand Slam title and she will try to do that at this year's US Open as the preparation for the event will start during the North American swing.

After not playing for a year, Serena Williams took part at the 2022 Wimbledon and lost in the first round to Harmony Tan. However, she showed that she's still competitive and she will try to show it once more in front of the home crowd.

Recently, she also spoke to the PEOPLE where she opened up about her life as a mother as well as her investments and activities other than tennis.

"I am a huge proponent of financial independence and education, and accessibility. So those things are really important for me to teach my daughter and also important for me to raise awareness," Williams told PEOPLE.

"We invest in women, we invest in women of color, we invest in people of color. A lot of these companies talk about diversity, but they just talk about it. It's because it's a good subject that they bring up, but they don't really do a lot of things about it. And so at Serena Ventures we do, we talk about it. We be about it."

She also opened up about how her preparations for the tournament changed after she became mother to daughter Olympia.

"Now when I prepare for a tournament, I practice in the morning, I take VC calls in the afternoon and then I spend time with Olympia, and that didn't happen five years ago," Williams said. "I can't imagine having this conversation with you a little while ago and saying that this is what my life looks like."
