Venus Williams has revealed that she has no plans of retiring anytime soon despite her unimpressive WTA ranking. The athlete comes in at No. 53 in the Women's Tennis Association's chart, but she’s not letting that stop her.

Venus, 39, along with her sister Serena, has revolutionized tennis and inspired tons of female athletes who are now pursuing their interests in the sport. Nonetheless, don't expect her to hang up her racket in the nearest future.

In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, the older Williams sister said:

"I got a lot of work to do on the court still. My mind when I wake up every day is still there…I still have a lot to do on the courts, so I still will be focusing on all of that."

Venus, seven-time Grand Slam singles and 16-time Grand Slam doubles titleholder, was also a former world number one. She famously crashed out of the 2017 Australian Open finals, losing to Serena, who was pregnant with her daughter, Olympia, at the time.

"If you can do no more, then you have to kind of let it go… There's only so much you can do in a 24-hour period."

As the tournament draws close again, Venus is getting ready to get back out on the court and do what she knows how to do best.

An October interview with CNBC Make It may offer insight into how Venus manages to bounce back and stay in the game despite many challenges along the way.

"Not too much bothers me," the gorgeous beauty disclosed. "So, even in the worst situations, I'm pretty calm and collected."

For someone like Venus, staying calm and collected is not an easy feat. Besides her busy life as a world-renowned athlete, Venus also oversees several businesses and has to stay on top of several investments.

According to the outlet, Venus has also had to deal with health challenges like chronic wrist pain and an autoimmune disorder called Sjögren's syndrome. Yet, she always brings her A-game.

Venus explained:

"I roll with the punches really well… I think part of it is, you know, you'll do the best you can [and] everything you can for the situation. And if you can do no more, then you have to kind of let it go… There's only so much you can do in a 24-hour period."

Back in July, Venus was in the news again after 15-year-old Cori "Coco" Gauff knocked her out of the first round at Wimbledon.

Knowing the mindset she adopts, however, Venus has dusted off that defeat and is only looking forward to ace her games in future tournaments. Whatever the case, her legacy as one of those who transformed tennis will never die.
