The undisputed greatest of all time in women’s tennis Serena remained mum on her retirement, implying that she isn’t sure yet if she wants to return for another Slam or not.
However, following what would have been her final match on a tennis court, the US Open put together a champion montage for their greatest player of all time.
In all, Williams, arguably one of the greatest players of all time, has bagged 23 Grand Slam titles in the Open Era. Her immense performance and domination of the tennis world rightly deserved the title of the greatest of all time.

On Friday at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, both players put on a show for the fans in attendance, but the Australian advanced to the next round with a 7-5, 6-7, 6-1 win. Williams would practically retire from the sport as a result of the defeat.
After the game, Tomljanovic stated that she loved the 40-year-old like everyone else and praised her for her amazing contributions to the game. She is incredible. She also said it felt odd for her to be competing against Williams in her final match.
