Recently, Serena Williams announced that she would be retiring from the exciting world of Tennis and it sent shock waves across the world. While no one was ready to say goodbye to the tennis players, best wishes, tributes and goodbyes poured in from around the globe for the queen of Tennis. But, following her recent grand win at the United States Open Tournament, it seems like her decision might not be final, yet.
When she entered the field to play the final match, there was visible celebration and sorrow in the air. Everyone was aware of the fact that she was getting to do her ‘last dance’.

At the end of the video, the words that were heard loud and clear made them all gasp, it said “if you ever decide to return Queen your throne will be waiting”. Well, to the delight of everyone, it seems like the queen might not be ready to leave back. Glad that her throne isn’t going to be left beyond just alone, huh?
“I’ve been pretty vague about it, right,” said Serena Williams post-match on being asked about the retirement. “I’m going to stay vague because you never know.” Sounds like a very wise decision made by the queen, doesn’t it? The queen of Tennis is all set to be facing off with Anett Kontaveit of Estonia in the second round in New York.
Upon hearing the fact that the queen i.e. Serena Willams is all set to play another match, the Twitterati has been reacting to her decision. Here’s what they are saying about her last match and her plans: –

THE LAST DANCE CONTINUES
Serena Williams plays a good match to beat Danka Kovinic 6-3, 6-3 and reach the 2nd round at the #USOpen. Just her 5th match of 2022 and by far (!) the best.
She will face the world number #2 Anett Kontaveit on Wednesday. Should be cool. pic.twitter.com/8P4FakqsEN

Could have been her last match ever but she won and will continue on. Can’t help but compare this to Kobe’s last game. I hope she wins the 2022 US Open to seal an amazing career! Thank you, Serena Williams! Love, all of us. 💕 pic.twitter.com/VKmUTEaIBi

Naomi Osaka: "I am not trying to make Federer and Nadal smaller, but I think Serena Williams is the biggest thing that will ever be in the sport."

Personally speaking, I have always seen Serena Williams as one of the biggest sources of power and pure feminine strength in the world. She is a source of inspiration for many women across the and on top of that, she is, of course, the strongest player in the history of Tennis. So, if the queen isn’t ready to leave her throne, we would be honoured to have her here for as long as she should choose to stay. Wouldn’t we?
I also cannot wait to see how she smashes the next opponent and wins the next match with her fire skills and her mad talent. Can you?
