Serena Williams Pens Down Emotional Message to Her Supporters
Former Number One, Serena Williams has penned down an emotional message to her supporters on her official Instagram account.
The 40-year-old has given a hint to the tennis world that the end is near in her tennis career. The American while she was speaking with Vogue said she is moving toward other important things but she has insisted she does not like the word retirement.
I'm gonna relish these next few weeks. Unfortunately, I wasn't ready to win Wimbledon this year. And I don't know if I will be ready to win New York. But I'm going to try. I know there's a fan fantasy that I might have tied Margaret that day in London, then maybe beat her record in New York, and then at the trophy ceremony say, "See ya. I get that. It's a good fantasy. But I'm not looking for some ceremonial, final on-court moment. I'm terrible at goodbyes, the world's worst. But please know that I am more grateful for you than I can ever express in words.
Williams made her come back to the court at the 2022 Wimbledon after she was ruled out of the sports for one year. Williams beat Nuria Parrizas-Diaz 6-3, 6-4 at the women's National Bank Open in Canada to record her first singles victory in 430 days. She had earlier confirmed that she will be playing at the US Open which will be played from August 29th, 2022 - September 5th, 2022.
