In a first-person essay, Williams revealed she wants to grow her family and is set to say goodbye to tennis at the US Open later this month
The 23-time Grand Slam champion has announced she will shortly hang up her racket.
All-time great Serena Williams says she is "evolving away from tennis" as she hinted she would retire from the sport after playing the US Open. "I have never liked the word retirement," Williams wrote in a Vogue article, headlined: "Farewell to tennis on her own terms - and in her own words." Williams, 40, has won 23 singles Grand Slam titles and is considered by many the best to have ever played the sport.
