Serena and Venus Williams quit the US Open

Serena and Venus Williams quit the US Open

It seems like the youngest of the Williams sisters can’t really count on him anymore. If she wanted to “attack” the Australian’s 24 slam wins, she now had to win in her forties. Because it will be 40 in September. It seems that the famous American did not see any chance of the success of this project, as there was a chance for two brilliant victories.

We will likely learn a lot more after the preparations for the upcoming games. If Serena, Venus and Roger are not among the participants, then perhaps this will mean the end of their beautiful and long career. However, this moment must come sometime…
