Serena Williams’ fantastic has earned her fans all over the world, and that includes 48-year-old Spaniard Alex Corretja who reacted to Serena Williams breaking the news of her retirement and was short of words for the fantastic career that the American has had over the years.

Talking about Serena, Alex Corretja said, “I am very sad to hear that Serena Williams is not going to play anymore, but it’s very understandable, We all knew she was fighting hard to become, again, a great player, but it wasn’t easy and she took her time. It was a little bit weird the way she did it, but of course we’re going to give her all the support and I’m very impressed by her career.

I don’t think we are conscious of everything she’s achieved. I think she has been playing amazing tennis on all surfaces, and I’m very impressed by the fact she’s won 855 matches in her career and only lost 153. That shows almost every time she stepped on the court she was winning, and of course 23 Grand Slams is something we’ve been talking about, if she was in the same era as Steffi Graf, that would have been an amazing rivalry between them. I hope she will have a nice US Open and we will give her a big round of applause,” Corretja added further.

The US Open will be Serena Williams’ final tournament and the legend is sure to get a huge reception from her fans.
