Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka keep fans guessing with cryptic social media posts

Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka's fans are confused by their latest posts on X/Twitter

Tennis fans were left puzzled by recent cryptic social media posts from Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka. Both Grand Slam champions gave their fans something to talk about with their tweets.

Serena Williams, 42, the greatest female tennis player of all time, is happily retired and busy raising her children, running her businesses, and preparing to host the ESPY Awards on July 11. In conjunction with that, ESPN+ is dropping an eight-part docuseries entitled "In the Arena" on July 10.

With that schedule, her post indicating that she is ready to hit balls gave fans reason to pause. They were not sure if she was referring to tennis, and if so, is her desire to get back on the court for recreational reasons. Or does she have a comeback in mind? People unretire and return to tennis often these days so why not Serena?

Serena Williams shares a thought, but Stan Wawrinka is planning an event

While Williams is sharing her thoughts, Stan Wawrinka, 39, is sharing the details to a Parisian event he is planning. Wawrinka's event is scheduled for May 23 at 4 PM (Paris time) at the Terrasse Du 7Eme Ciel - Le Printemps.

He supplied a link to sign up to attend. It should come as no surprise that the event is at capacity, no additional spots are available for people to sign up for. We have not seen or heard much from Wawrinka this year so fans are hoping it is a sponsor-related or philanthrophic event. Some initially feared that it was an announcement regarding his future tennis plans. With the prospect of losing Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem, and Diego Schwartzman to retirement in the coming months, losing 'Stan the Man' would be a crushing blow.
