Serena Williams To Retirement From Tennis After The U.S. Open

August 9, 2022

In an Instagram post previewing her appearance on the cover of the September issue of Vogue, Serena Williams announced she will retire in the coming weeks — perhaps after the U.S. Open.

Williams wrote:

“There comes a time in life when we have to decide to move in a different direction. That time is always hard when you love something so much. My goodness do I enjoy tennis. But now, the countdown has begun. I have to focus on being a mom, my spiritual goals and finally discovering a different, but just exciting Serena. I’m gonna relish these next few weeks.”

Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles in her career, one shy of Margaret Court’s all-time mark of 24, yet she is widely considered the greatest female player of all time. Her last major came at the 2017 Australian Open where she beat her sister Venus while pregnant with her daughter Olympia. Williams has a net worth of $260 million and has more than a dozen corporate partners. Her $94 million in career prize money is twice as much as any other female athlete has made.
