Serena Williams is the best tennis player like Steph Curry is the best basketball player.

In August 2022, 40-year-old Serena William is a Tennis star. After her game in Arthur Ashe Stadium, in Queen New York, she opened up about her future possibilities with tennis, and possibly her past match being her last game.

Williams has had a bright career playing tennis. Some might argue she is the best tennis player ever. She has made the very tough decision about leaving her sport.

“It’s been such a hard decision, you know. … It’s been a very hard decision because I think when you’re passionate about something, and you love something so much I think it’s always hard to walk away,” Williams said.

Serena Williams has played tennis for a long time and has been an icon to many. Many look up to her and will continue to. She has impacted many lives.

“But I was just like, ‘Alright, I think now’s the time. I just have a family’ … There are other chapters in life and, you know, I call it an evolution,” she said.

She has decided to make this decision because she has a family and other priorities she wants to accomplish. She has a life outside of tennis that she wants to focus on. It has been a great journey for her, and she will continue to be around and still be the Serena Williams people all know and love.

“It’s like Serena 2.0. I’m still gonna be crazy, I’m still gonna be intense. I’ll still be around. I have my VC company, Serena Ventures, and like I said we invest in a lot of people. We invest in women and people of color and men as well, we invest in everyone. I really wanted to spend more time at home and work on my spiritual life and that was really important to me,” she said.
