Hey Serena, Thanks

A massive, massive loss in the tennis world came down Tuesday.

Serena Williams, who became a pro 27 years ago, announced in a Vogue article that she will be leaving the game of tennis:

“I’ve been reluctant to admit that I have to move on from playing tennis. It’s like a taboo topic. It comes up, and I start to cry. I think the only person I’ve really gone there with is my therapist.”

The entire article, which you should read, begins with the idea that her daughter wants to be a big sister, and the almost 41 year old GOAT has chosen to attempt to try and expand her family over continuing the greatest women’s tennis career of all time. An admirable decision that is more impressive than anything she’s done on the court.

However, what was done on the court wasn’t too shabby. This screenshot alone from Serena’s website is just bonkers:

I mean they had to shrink the font to ant size so all of her titles could fit within the web design! If that’s not GOAT stuff, I don’t know what is.

The list of accomplishments goes on an on that other/better blogs and websites can list. I am not the most knowledgable tennis fan, but can very easily appreciate what Serena Williams has achieved on the court.

More importantly, her philanthropy and representation in tennis has likely done more for the sport than anyone could put a dollar figure on. A champion in the most literal sense.

The dedication and dominance cannot be denied, and may be something we never see in women’s tennis again.
