Serena Williams gets a standing ovation as her farewell US Open ends – Deadline

The end came suddenly for Serena Williams in tonight’s US Open singles match. But she fought to the end. Now the question remains whether we have seen the last of one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

With the ability of the Flushing Meadows crowd roaring at Williams’ every shot and groaning when she missed, Williams avoided a match point six times in the third set during her match against Croatian-Australian Ajla Tomljanovic. She finally fell in the third set 7-5, 6-7, 6-1.

Williams acknowledged the applause from the crowd when it was all over, raising her hand to thank her fans. In an emotional post-match interview, he said: “Thank you very much. I tried.” He thanked his father and former coach, and “everyone who has been by my side for so many years. It all started with my parents. And it all started with them, and I am so grateful to them. These are tears of happiness.” he thanked his sister, Venus, his stunt partner, “She is the only reason Serena Williams existed.”

“It’s been a fun ride,” he said, as the crowd cheered.

Tomljanovic was gracious in his post-match interview. “I love Serena as much as you do.” She added: “She is the greatest of all time. Period.”

Williams has been No. 1 in women’s singles for a record 186 consecutive weeks and has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles in her long career, the second most all time behind Margaret Court.

Williams seemed to leave the door open to a possible return at one point. “You never know,” she said.
