"I'm ready for what's next": Tennis trailblazer Serena Williams announces retirement

CA, 10 Aug 2022
Record-breaking 23-time Grand Slam champion and tennis icon Serena Williams has announced she will retire from the sport after the 2022 U.S. Open in September.

In an essay shared by Vogue, Williams wrote the decision to leave the sport wasn't an easy one; and it's certainly not a retirement.

"I have never liked the word retirement," Williams, 40, wrote. "It doesn't feel like a modern word to me."

Jeff Semple looks at what's next for the living legend, and how she helped break barriers.
