Serena WilliamsThe 40-year-old was seen leaving her hotel in the New York City area on August 31 as she headed to the second round of the US Open, which is being held in Queens.

She was kept warm in a black hoodie with a zip and held Evian water in her right hand and her phone in her left. The tennis star went makeup free and wore her hair up in a ponytail.
Serena started her last US Open on August 29, during which she was defeated Danka Kovinich From Montenegro in two sets 6-3.

Serena wore a long, mesh top under the dress and kept her hair away from her face with a Nike headband. She wore her hair in a ponytail while smiling Olympia styled her hair in white beaded braids.
Serena announced her retirement from tennis on August 9 in a personal article for Vogue magazine. Instead of seeing her next step as retirement, she said, she views it as just a “transition” to the next stage of her life. “Probably the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution,” according to her theory. “I’m here to tell you that I’m developing away from tennis, towards other things that interest me.”
She revealed that the biggest reason she left the sport she loves was her desire to expand her family. “Believe me, I’ve never wanted to choose between tennis and family. I don’t think that’s fair. If I were young, I wouldn’t write this because I would be there playing and winning while my wife was doing the physical work of expanding our family,” she wrote. “I was one of those annoying women in love with pregnancy and I was working until the day I had to report to the hospital – despite the complexity of things on the other side. I almost did the impossible: many people don’t realize I was two months pregnant when I won the Australian Championships. open in 2017. “But I’m 41 this month, and I have to give something back.”
Although Serena will miss tennis, her legacy will live on: She holds the record for the most wins in a Grand Slam, with 23 wins to her name. During the August 26 session with todayI contemplate this achievement. “I never dreamed of getting so many Grand Slams or titles. I thought I would play tennis and maybe win a major tournament or two,” she smiled. “For me, it’s all a bonus.”
