Serena Williams brushes off retirement talks after Wimbledon defeat

The longtime world’s number one, Serena Williams fell to defeat after the first round of Wimbledon on Tuesday appearing in her first fight after a year of injury break. However, there were indications that the loss might be the most significant one out there.

It was a terrible sight for the tennis lovers to watch the 7 time Wimbledon champion fall.
Williams went down 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 to the world number 115, in the opening round.

“The US Open was the place where I won my first Slam, it’s super-special. There’s definitely a lot of motivation to get better and play at home,” Serena said.

“Today I gave all I could do … Maybe tomorrow I could have gave more. Maybe a week ago I could have gave more. But today was what I could do. At some point you have to be able to be OK with that. And that’s all I can do. I can’t change time or anything,” she added.

“There are a number of things Serena Williams could be doing tonight. She has a great family, millions in the bank, 23 grand slams & successful businesses. But here she is, grinding and hustling for every ball on Centre Court. What an athlete,” Uche Amako tweeted about this American legend.

She finished the three-hour, 11-minute evening encounter with 61 points but 54 gross errors.
