Here are some of her followers’ reactions:
However, know your legacy will last a lifetime, many times over. Thank you for just being you. Everything we needed at the time.”
God bless you”
In a recent interview with CBS Morning, Serena was back to talk about retirement.
“I just feel that, to me, withdrawal is such a big word for someone my age. It’s not something I feel is good for me, I’ve never been able to stay in certain patterns, I’ve always tried to get out of them, so even the concept of retreat is not something I can accept with serenity.
Actually I wasn’t happy at all after the match against Tomljanovic,” Serena said. “I was there to keep going and to keep winning. I thought: I can’t believe I let that game go. Right now I am allowing myself to be tired, to relax and to be alone at times.
It’s harder than I ever imagined. I’ve never allowed myself to do anything like this before. I’m definitely evolving, but it all feels so different when you retire. A come back? It is hard to say. I would say no, at least not at the moment. I gave my whole life to tennis. And now it’s time to dedicate myself to something else.”
