Serena, Venus Williams teamed up for doubles at the US Open
In her final tournament, Serena decided to also play doubles with Venus.
After the Willliams sisters suffered a first round defeat to Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova, Serena's singles run ended the following day after a three-set defeat versus Ajla Tomljanovic. After losing to Tomljanovic, Serena acknowledged the role Venus and her family played in her tennis journey and success.
“Thank you, Daddy. I know you’re watching. Thanks, Mom (tearing up)” Serena said after her final match. “Just I thank everyone that’s here, that’s been on my side so many years, decades. But it all started with my parents.
And they deserve everything. So I’m really grateful for them. These are happy tears, I guess ; I don’t know. And I wouldn’t be Serena if there wasn’t Venus, so thank you, Venus. She’s the only reason that Serena Williams ever existed, so, I don’t know.
Just everyone from Jill to Isha to my sister Lyn, to my husband, Olympia, to Jarmere. Everyone in that box there today. Alexis, Kristy, Derrick (phonetic).” Serena may be retired, but she hasn't closed the doors on playing tennis again.
During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Williams said that Tom Brady “set an amazing trend.” Brady, 45, retired from the NFL after the 2021 season, only to un-retire 40 days later. It remains to be seen if we will see Serena Williams play tennis again.
