“I don’t know how I’m going to be able to look at this magazine when it comes out, knowing that this is it, the end of a story that started in Compton, California, with a little Black girl who just wanted to play tennis.”
As the top tennis player said goodbye to tennis, she did have to do so with a hard heart yet in style! The 40-year-old American tennis player has seen the highs and lows of her career through all these years. Recently, Serena has featured and posed for various luxury brands from Nike to Gucci! But to leave the niche and enter a completely different industry is never an easy decision to make.
Serena Williams spoke to the Vogue editor, Rob Haskell, about her love for tennis, her family, her inspiration, her career, her feelings before announcing her retirement and many more topics.
I’ve been reluctant to admit that I have to move on from playing tennis. It’s like a taboo topic. It comes up, and I start to cry. I think the only person I’ve really gone there with is my therapist.-Serena Williams
