Serena Williams and Roger Federer maybe turning 38 years old in the coming months but both the veterans of the game showed that they still possess the physical prowess to compete with the best. Both players made the women’s and men’s singles finals respectively but ended up on the losing side.

"No matter which way you look at it, we're not going to be out here in the next three, four, five years,” Williams said, as quoted on Tennis World USA. “The time is now to get out there and to watch us play, I guess."

Williams is confident that she is on the right track to get back to her best despite losing all three of her Grand Slam finals appearances since returning from giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia. She also made it clear that she always goes into a tournament knowing that she has a chance to win it and did so again at Wimbledon this year.

"I always say that I have my chance. When I believe that, when I start to believe that when I hear my voice saying that I have a chance, then I go for it without thinking about the negative. I do that also in normal life. When I really believe something, I repeat: I'm able to do,” Williams added.

Williams will have her chance to equal Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record of 24 titles in September at the US Open. Federer will also be in contention at Flushing Meadows but Novak Djokovic will enter the tournament as the favorite in the men’s draw.
