It is said that sportsmen retire when their age increases or the body does not cooperate, but perhaps you will not be able to say that in the case of Serena Williams. When Serena came to play in the US Open, she won both the opening matches. She faced Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round, and swung a marathon racket for over 3 hours. In the final match Serena eventually lost 7-5, 6-7(4), 6-1, the intensity of the 3-hour battle shows that age is just an afterthought.
I feel that I have given something to tennis. Maybe passion. Saw many ups and downs, but did not give up. I could have played further but I am happy that I live in the moment and I am also grateful that I am Serena.
So great cricketer Sachin Tendulkar saluted Serena’s greatness and wrote – Age is not what the body tells you, but what your mind tells the body. Young people can solve the world’s big problems, adults (at older ages) can do something new and big. Sport inspires society to push boundaries and achieve the impossible. Congratulations to Serena on an inspiring career.
If you look at the statistics, you will see that Serena is at the top of the record. His stature in the tennis world is not less than the great Roger Federer of Switzerland, Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Rafael Nadal of Spain. These are the trinity of men’s tennis, which have reigned for the past 3 decades. Fed Express means that Federer is still running at 41 years old. If Roger is still seen on the tennis court a year or two later, it should not be an exaggeration.
Congratulations on a wonderful career. How lucky we are to have seen a little Compton girl become one of the greatest players of all time. proud of you

Serena, who surprised the tennis world by defeating a tram player like Martina Hingis at the age of 17, is no less than a fighter. Even today, when she came to the court, no one could have guessed that she would lose. He also handled many important points. Her service also had the same dexterity for which she was known. The only difference was that when she first stepped on this court she was a young diva herself and today junior Serena aka her daughter Olympia was in the stands to cheer her on. She also likes to get her hair pierced like her mother.
Serena not only changed the landscape of tennis but also played an important role in empowering the next generation. She never gives up. On and off the court.

She likes mother. Not just like a mother, but like a warrior. She must have felt it and why not, Serena was wreaking havoc on the tennis court while she was smelling her mother’s belly. She won the Australian Open-2017 during her pregnancy. She is the witness of mother’s every moment, every trouble. For him, Serena is a mother, but in reality, Serena is a thought, which inspires everyone to do something.
Serena proved that no dream is too small. Wherever you come from or whatever the situation may be. Anything can be achieved if you believe in yourself.

The way Sachin dreamed of winning the World Cup at the age of 16 and pursued this dream till his last breath. In 2011, his dream was fulfilled, in 2013, Sachin hung the bat on the pole. It is said that age is just a number (Age is just a number..) so its living definition is Serena Williams, Sachin Tendulkar, Roger Federer, Tom Brady, MS Dhoni.
