Serena Williams says ‘countdown’ to retirement has begun

S

US tennis great Serena Williams announced on Tuesday that “the countdown has begun” to her retirement from the sport.

“There comes a time in life when we have to decide to move in a different direction,” the 40-year-old, 23-time Grand Slam winner said in a post on Instagram. 

“I have to focus on being a mom, my spiritual goals and finally discovering a different, but just exciting Serena. I’m gonna relish these next few weeks.”

However, she has failed to add a 24th major which would take her level with Margaret Court’s all-time record.

Williams stepped onto a hardcourt for the first time in a year and a half on Monday in the WTA Toronto tournament where fought through to the second round with a straight sets victory over Nuria Parrizas Diaz.

The former world number one had played her first singles match in a year during a first round defeat at Wimbledon in June.
