Tennis legend Serena Williams has announced that she will soon be leaving professional sport, but it is not yet clear whether the US Open will actually be her last tournament. Martina Navratilova can empathize with her situation.

Navratilova understands Serena Williams: Tennis icon Martina Navratilova (65) fully understands Serena Williams’ (40) state of mind so shortly before the end of her career. “It’s a difficult time for her,” she said, according to Tennis World USA. The 23-time Grand Slam winner can no longer keep up at her age and has not won a game since her comeback in Wimbledon.

Short, clear, compact

Farewell on Monday evening? “You can see that she finds it difficult to accept defeat,” said Navratilova, who has won 18 individual Grand Slams herself. Williams meets the world number 80 at the US Open in the first round on Tuesday night. Thank you Kovinic. It could be the last game of her career.
