Tennis-There will be no fantasy finishing for Serena, says Navratilova


Serena Williams might have arranged retirement her way however the American should be ready to acknowledge the farewells as well as the misfortunes and leave the stage with effortlessness, tennis extraordinary Martina Navratilova has told Reuters.

Williams flagged her aim to resign in a Vogue article toward the beginning of August saying she was “developing away from tennis” yet never affirming the U.S. Open as her last occasion.

Nonetheless, for Navratilova, as a large portion of the tennis world, the message was clear – – Flushing Meadows, where Williams won the first of her 23 Grand Slam titles in 1999, will be the spot she takes her last bow.

Navratilova said she totally comprehended the feelings Williams was grappling with as she moves toward her last match having encountered large numbers of them herself.

Be that as it may, having pursued her choice, Williams should be ready to live with it and bid farewell even notwithstanding rout.

“It’s hard,” said Navratilova, who is working with Sense Arena on a computer generated experience tennis preparing item that gives players improved perception.

“At the point when I resigned in ’93 I told the press it was my last year which was an error in light of the fact that each and every competition was a friggin tragedy.”

Williams’ short goodbye visit, which has included two stops – in Toronto and Cincinnati – has been more unpleasant than sweet.

The 40-year-old Williams additionally said in the Vogue article that she could have done without “retirement” and has been plainly disappointed by the powerlessness to direct the details of her exit.

“Serena did it her way, which was declaring in an extremely captivating way on Vogue magazine, however at that point she isn’t tolerating the misfortunes, she isn’t tolerating what accompanies it which is talking about farewell,” added Navratilova.


Beaten in the last 16 at Roland Garros in June 2021, Williams has played irregularly and that has been reflected in her outcomes, dominating just a single match since.

At the Cincinnati Open last week, her last check up in front of the U.S. Open what begins Aug. 29, Williams was lowered 6-4 6-0 by U.S. Open hero Raducanu and walked off the court stone-confronted, scarcely recognizing a loving group.

Navratilova accepts Williams ought to prepare herself for greater frustration in light of the fact that the U.S. Open is probably not going to give the fantasy finishing she would like for her vocation.

Assuming Hollywood were composing the content Williams would stroll off into retirement in win by winning a subtle 24th Slam that would pull her level with Australian Margaret Court at the highest point of the untouched rundown.

While the U.S. Open can deliver a decent Cinderella story like last year when Raducanu, a 18-year-old qualifier positioned 150 on the planet, raised the prize yet Navratilova doesn’t see Williams traveling back in time and conjuring comparable wizardry.

“Feelings can convey you up to this point, I don’t see a Cinderella blissful closure where she wins the competition,” said Navratilova. “The manner in which she has looked it doesn’t seem as though she will get back in the saddle and win the competition.

“Furthermore, with the pressure of realizing this is probable your last competition it doesn’t help.

“However, on the off chance that anybody can defeat it would be Serena.”
