Serena Williams, the 23-time singles Grand Slam champion and former World Number 1, recently put the rumors about her retirement when she made an official statement about ending her career from the professional world after the end of the hard-court season. It would mean that she will play her last matches at the US Open 2022 which would also be the final Grand Slam event of her glorious career which lasted for more than two decades.

She lost both the matches after her singles comeback to the court at the Wimbledon Championship 2022. At Wimbledon, she faced a first-round exit to Harmony Tan followed by her loss at the Canadian Open in the second round to Belinda Bencic even though she tried a lot in winning the matches. After her loss in Toronto, she received a warm farewell from the audience where she appeared for the final time. She has been a dominant factor in revolutionizing women’s tennis and has been an inspiration to many upcoming players.

Serena Williams after the big losses will play next at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati where she will face the young British player Emma Raducanu in the first round. The American, who is a six-time champion at the US Open is excited and looking forward to enjoying her last few matches, especially giving her another shot at winning the title.

Patrick McEnroe, former American player as well as former captain of the United States Davis Cup team, recently discussed the chances of seeing the champion end her career on a high by clinching her 7th US Open. It would be a great surprise to all but nothing would not be a shocker for him. He said “It would surprise me if she won this US Open, but it would not shock me. Greatness is greatness. Never underestimate it – or Serena. I think the US Open in New York City is the perfect place for Serena’s last stand.

He also stated that she is very passionate about winning and she has created a legacy on her own. He further added, “Her passion to play, compete and win was all time. That passion sometimes got the best of her — especially in New York. But that’s what helped her become the icon that she is. With all the ups and downs, trials and tribulations Serena has had at the Open, this is the appropriate final chapter“.
