Venus Williams insists she has no desire to call time on her career and is eyeing a tilt at the doubles in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Williams reached the Australian Open final earlier this year, the 36-year-old becoming the oldest finalist in the history of the Melbourne Grand Slam.
However, that was the American star's first appearance in a major final since 2009 and in recent years there has been speculation at regular intervals that the seven-time Grand Slam champion could decide to retire.
Williams has now stressed she hopes to play in the women's doubles at the next edition of the summer Games in 2020, alongside sister Serena, meaning she will remain on the WTA Tour for the foreseeable future.
"That's (playing in the Tokyo Olympics) my absolute dream," she said, as reported by Tennis World USA. "I have a dream partner (Serena). I would love that. I'm planning on playing tennis for a very long time yet. That dream is still going strong."
