This month, the 40-year-old made the announcement that she was “evolving” away from tennis, so the match at Flushing Meadows would be her last.
Before Williams’ final performance, the American beverage company Gatorade released an advertisement in her honor. The ad, which features Beyonce as the narrator, was unveiled last night at the MTV VMAs.
The music legend says, “We’ll start where she started when the world writes her down in history.” “In love.” A relationship that spurred a movement a movement to always embrace your unique self.
Williams yelled “C’mon” after saying, “To be so in love with your identity that your very essence cannot be obtained,” during one of her matches.

Williams is anticipated to give up tennis following the US Open, which starts today.
Whether Serena Williams wins or loses, the US Open will honor her on Monday.

Williams announced her decision to end her career in the upcoming issue of Vogue, though a precise departure date has not been set.
The American superstar received the news after recording her first victory in 430 days, but she admitted in the article that it was the hardest thing she had ever encountered. I don’t want it to end, but I’m also prepared for what comes next.
The word “retirement” is not used by Williams. Williams stated in the most recent issue of Vogue, “I have never liked the word.”
It doesn’t strike me as a contemporary word, I’ve been referring to this as a transition, but I want to be careful how I use that word because it has a very specific and significant meaning to a group of people.
In the upcoming issue of Vogue, Serena Williams announced her impending retirement, in part so she could spend more time with her daughter Olympia (right).
Williams will face Danka Kovinic in what might be the American’s final singles match.
Maybe evolution is the best way to sum up what I’m doing, she added. “I’m here to let you know that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me,” the speaker said.
In addition to wanting to spend more time with her husband, Alexis, and their young daughter, Olympia, who is five years old, Williams also disclosed that the couple is planning to have another child soon.
Williams stated, “Alexis and I have been trying to conceive for the past year, and we recently received some information from my doctor that put my mind at ease and made me feel like we can add to our family whenever we’re ready.”
“As an athlete, I definitely don’t want to get pregnant again.” Tennis requires me to have two feet in or two feet out
Regardless of the outcome on Monday night, the US Open will host a farewell ceremony as she ends an illustrious career.
