Serena Williams Retired at the U.S. Open As One of the Greatest Tennis Players Ever!

After becoming a professional tennis player before age 18, alongside her sister, Venus Williams, Serena Williams finally ended her career as a four-time Olympic gold medalist, with many career wins and titles. During her career, she made Forbes' Highest Paid Athletes list. Serena appeared on the list twice as the highest-paid female athlete and the only female athlete. Not to mention, she was one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. She won 14 women's doubles titles with Venus and was named the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the year.

Williams recently shared with Vogue Magazine that she's evolving away from tennis to focus on other important things. The tennis star played her last match at the U.S. Open, with many celebrities in attendance, such as Spike Lee, Vera Wang, Mike Tyson, and Dionne Warwick, to bid her farewell. She should take a bow for her exceptional career in tennis!

We salute you, Serena!
