Tennis world in frenzy over Serena Williams act in press conference

Serena Williams has dropped a retirement bombshell in her post-match press conference at the Canadian Open, saying she can ‘see the light at the end of the tunnel’.



The 40-year-old won her first singles match in 430 days on Monday, beating Nuria Parrizas Diaz 6-3 6-4 at the hard-court event in Toronto.

Speaking in her press conference after the drought-breaking win, the 23-time grand slam champion was asked what keeps her motivated to keep playing into her 40s.



But Serena admitted the only thing motivating her at the moment is the fact she will soon be retiring.

“I guess there’s just a light at the end of the tunnel,” she said.




“I don’t know, I’m getting closer to the light, so… lately that’s been it for me. I can’t wait to get to that light.”

When asked what “the light” means to her, she responded “freedom”.

“I love playing though, so it’s like, amazing,” she added.




“But, you know, I can’t do this forever.

“Sometimes you just want to try your best to enjoy the moments, and do the best that you can.”

The bombshell admission was the biggest hint yet that Serena will be hanging up the racquet soon, with many speculating she will bow out at the US Open in front of her home fans later this month.

Tennis fans and commentators were sent into a frenzy over her comments on Monday.
