In the last chapter, Simona Halep break it On Serena Williams, score 6-2, 6-2. The American player was so disappointed by the defeat that she left the cup in the locker room.

“It happened in 2019, when I lost the final to Simona. In the dressing room, after the match, she told me: ‘I don’t want to win the finalist’s cup, I miss the champion’s cup, if you want, I’ll give it to you (laughs’). We had a lot of fun, but the sad thing is he wasn’t joking, he just left the cup there.

The lady in charge of organizing Wimbledon was pale when she saw this. I’m a player who’d kill her father and mother to see that cup, and Serena left it there as a kind of plate where she puts biscuits and appetizers.”Marion Bartoli told L’Équipe, citing welovetennis.fr.

Serena Williams announces her retirement from tennis

Serena Williams announced her retirement from tennis after the 2022 US Open. The US Grand Prix won her last Grand Slam in 2017 at the Australian Open, the most in the Open Era (23) and is only one short of Australian Margaret Court (24) .

“It’s the hardest thing I could ever imagine. I don’t want it to end, but at the same time I’m ready for what’s coming. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready to win Wimbledon this year. And I don’t know if I’ll be ready to win in New York.” But I will try. And the qualifiers will be fun.”Serena said.

The American athlete spoke to Vogue and had a longer message for her fans.

“Believe me, I’ve never wanted to choose between tennis and family. I don’t think it’s fair. If I were a man, I wouldn’t write this because I would have played and won matches while my wife was doing the physical work of expanding our family. I would probably have been more Tom Brady if I had the chance.” .

Don’t get me wrong: I love being a woman and I love every second of my Olympia pregnancy. I was one of those annoying women who loved getting pregnant and worked until the day I had to report to the hospital, though things got complicated on the other side.

I almost did the impossible: a lot of people don’t realize I was two months pregnant when I won the Australian Open in 2017. But I’m 41 this month and I have to give something. I have never liked the word “withdrawal”. It doesn’t seem like a modern word to me.

I thought of it as a transition, but I want to be careful how this word is used, which means something specific and very important to a community of people. Probably the best word to describe what I do is evolution.

I’m here to tell you that I’m developing away from tennis, towards other things that are important to me. A few years ago, I quietly started Serena Ventures, a venture capital firm. Shortly thereafter, I started a family. I want to grow that family.

But I was reluctant to admit to myself or anyone else that I needed to give up tennis. I can’t even have this conversation with my mom and dad. It’s like it’s not real until you say it out loud. Appearing, an uncomfortable lump formed in my throat and I started crying.

The only person I was actually there was my therapist! One thing I won’t do is this sugar coat. I know a lot of people are excited and looking forward to retirement, and I really wish I could feel that way.

World number one Ashleigh Barty was when she left the sport in March and I think she felt really ready to move on. One of my best friends, Caroline Wozniacki, felt a sense of relief when I retired in 2020.” Serena Williams said, according to Vogue.
