Williams, who bid an emotional goodbye to tennis at the U.S. Open last month, and seven – times Olympic gold medalist Felix both had businesses up and running before calling time on their careers. Other elite female athletes, such as four-time WNBA champion Sue Bird and three – times Olympic ice hockey medalist Kendall Coyne Schofield, have leveraged their experience in front offices of professional sports.

King, who battled for gender equality in tennis and celebrated her Women’s Sports Foundation’s annual gala this week, told Reuters the next stage of their careers would be just as rewarding.
