The 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams, has announced the end of a career that extended beyond sports. She has made it clear that she is prepared to give up tennis so she can concentrate on having more kids and growing her business. In an essay and a message on her Instagram, Williams hinted that her final match might take place at the US Open, although she was unsure of the exact date.

Williams has won the most women’s singles matches at major tournaments and the most singles major titles since turning 30. She is the only tennis player, male or female, to have claimed at least six victories in each of the four Grand Slam events. Williams, who will turn 41 in a month, needs to put parenthood, following her spiritual goals, and discovering a fresh, exciting Serena first. She will find delight in her career for the next several weeks. She shared it on social media. Williams is one of the best and most accomplished athletes in the sport’s long history. Instead of using the word “retirement,” she chooses to think of this stage of her life as a shift away from tennis and toward other important things to her. Williams said she and Ohanian desired a second child, but she didn’t want to get pregnant again while taking part in an athletic competition. She had to remain two feet within or outside of the court at all times. She conveyed her regret by saying that she didn’t want it to end, but she was ready for what would happen next.
