Farewell Chronicles Announced? Serena Williams defeated Australia’s Agla Tomljanovic (WTA-46) last night – in the third round of the US Open – 7-5, 6-7 (4/7), 6-1. The US Open appears to be Williams’ last tennis tournament. “I don’t think I will go back to my decision to resign. But never say never.”
Serena Williams burst into tears last night after losing to Australian Agla Tomljanovic (WTA-46). The 40-year-old tennis legend has been mysterious about the time for a long time, but Williams will soon be saying goodbye to tennis.
The third round of the US Open appears to be the final leg of her career at the moment. However, the American still kept the door a symbolic crack. “I don’t think I’ll ever get back on track again, but I’m not saying never,” said emotional Williams clearly.
There was no Serena Williams without Venus Williams
The No. 1 in the world took time out on the field to thank her family. “It all started because of my parents. They are the reason I’m here. She and of course my sister Venus Williams. There would have been no Serena Williams without Venus Williams. Thank you!”
The 40-year-old tennis legend has already defeated 80th seed Danka Kovinic and world number two Anett Kontaveit at the US Open. In the third round she did not let Tomljanovic put it aside without a fight.
She narrowly lost the first set 7-5 and won the tiebreak in the second set. However, it costs a lot of energy. In Group 3, her Australian opponent showed no mercy: 6-1.
