Serena Williams declares her tennis retirement.


Serena Williams, the reigning US Open tennis champion, declared on Tuesday that "the countdown has begun" to her retirement from the game.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams continued by saying that it is now time for her to change her course in life.

The 40-year-old stated in an Instagram post that she needs to prioritise being a mother while still pursuing her spiritual development.

There is a point in life when we must choose to go in a different route, the author stated. Every time you love something so deeply, that time is difficult. I love tennis, for the love of God. The countdown has started, though. I have to prioritise being a mother, achieving my spiritual objectives, and finding a new, interesting Serena. I'm going to enjoy these upcoming weeks.

Williams said in an exclusive interview with Vogue that she never liked the word "retirement" and would much rather use the word "evolution."

"I have never liked the word retiring," she remarked. It doesn't strike me as a contemporary word. Although I've been thinking of this as a transition, I want to be careful how I use that word because it has a very specific and significant meaning to a group of individuals. Perhaps the easiest way to sum up what I'm doing is to call it evolutionary. 

I'm here to let you know that my priorities are shifting away from tennis and toward other things. I quietly founded Serena Ventures, a venture capital business, a few years ago. I soon afterward began a family. I want that family to expand.
