Tennis legend Serena Williams says she plans to retire after US Open – Sportsnet.ca

Serena Williams, one of the most transcendent and dominant competitors in the history of tennis, is retiring from the sport after playing in the US Open once last time, she announced in a personal essay published by Vogue on Tuesday.

“I have never liked the word retirement,” Williams wrote. “It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition, but I want to be sensitive about how I use that word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people. Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution. I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me.”

More to come.
