Serena Williams Is Now Set To Retire From Tennis

Serena Williams has drilled down into settling on the hard decision to put a full stop to her career. The tennis whiz is declaring her retirement from tennis. Following the 2022 U.S. Open, Williams is almost ready to say her final goodbye to her career.

Williams told the magazine,

“Truly, I never wanted to pick either tennis and a family. I don’t believe it’s fair. If I were a person, I wouldn’t wite this since I’d be out there playing and winning while my husband was doing the actual work of extending our family. Don’t misunderstand me: I love being a woman, and I cherished each second of being pregnant with Olympia… . Many people don’t understand that I was two months pregnant when I won the Australian Open in 2017. But I’m turning 41 this month [on September 26], and something must give”

She further expressed:

“never liked the word ‘retirement’” and would rather prefer to describe her parting ways from the sport as an “evolution.” She added, “I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me. A few years ago I quietly started Serena Ventures, a venture capital firm. Soon after that, I started a family. I want to grow that family,” as she revealed that she and her husband Alexis with whom she shares a four-year-old daughter have been trying to have another child.

Williams remarked,

“There is no happiness in this topic for me…. I feel a great deal of pain. It’s the hardest thing that I could ever imagine. I hate it. I hate that I have to be at this crossroads. I’m torn: I don’t want it to be over, but at the same time I’m ready for what’s next.”
