Greg Rusedski praised one of the greatest athletes ever, Serena Williams, underlining how the US tennis star is the greatest tennis player of all time. Greg told: “Serena Williams is undoubtedly the greatest player of all time.
In addition to winning a lot, she has had an unparalleled impact on the game. She probably won’t be able to match Margaret Court’s record, but that doesn’t detract from her fabulous career. She took women’s tennis to another level with her sister Venus.
Even those who know absolutely nothing about tennis know Serena Williams. It is about to retire an icon of modern sport. It would be great if she retired by winning the US Open like Pete Sampras did. Woe to underestimate Serena.
At the same time, I understand her decision to retire. You cannot go on indefinitely. She won her first major in 1999, 23 years have passed. I’m looking forward to the US Open. Arthur Ashe Stadium will be full in every seat order.”
Serena Williams’ retirement
Through an article published in Vogue, Serena Williams announced the imminent end of her career. Without indicating a precise date, the American legend has made it clear that she will greet the world of tennis at the next US Open.
Barring a sensational and unlikely backlash in New York, the 23-time Grand Slam champion won’t be able to match Margaret Court’s all-time record. That announcement was not exactly a bolt from the blue, considering that the former WTA number 1 has played very little in the last two seasons.
Last year, Serena played just six official tournaments and never set foot on the pitch after her injury at Wimbledon. In 2022, Williams played only two matches in singles and seemed a long way from the glories of the past.
In addition to collecting 23 majors, Serena spent 319 weeks at the top of the world rankings and grossed a whopping $ 95 million in prize money.
