American tennis player was overcome in 3 sets and said goodbye to the sport after losing at the US Open


One of the greatest careers of an athlete in history has come to an end. This Friday, Serena Williams, who had announced that she would retire after the US Open, said goodbye to tennis.

The 40-year-old American and owner of 39 Grand Slam titles and three Olympic medals lost in the third round of US Open for Australian Ajla Tomljanovic for 2 sets to 1, partials of 7-5, 6-7 (4) and 6-1, in more than 3 hours.

Serena couldn’t hold back the tears speaking after her defeat, starting a speech thanking her parents, especially her father Richard, who, in poor health, hasn’t been to the tournaments for a few years.

Thanks daddy, I know what you’re seeing. Thank you mom, thank you to everyone who was by my side in these decades. But it all started with my parents and they deserve everything, I’m grateful to them. These are tears of happiness“, said Serena, who paid tribute to her older sister and tennis legend Venus Williams.

“I wouldn’t be Serena if it weren’t for Venus, she’s the only reason Serena existed.”

Asked if the high level of the match would make her reconsider her retirement, the North American did not deny the possibility of going back. “You never know…”.
