  3. Serena William has break record several time’s she is now getting old,she can still put more effort.

  5. Sometimes this surprises makes the sport iinteresting, but it good for the young girl and bad for Serena

  6. You have been winning over the years….you can’t win always…Also age is creeping in on you…..

  7. You don’t expect to always be a winner in all you do. Serena has made name in the past and has come of age, I think all she needs now is to retire and have a good rest.

  8. What a pity sometes are like that we dont get to win always that is the part of life go and get a good treatment for ur ankle

  13. My woman you tried so much but luck was not on your side. 5-2 to 40-30 you tried so much with those shot no way kia is well. Serena I want to be like you and your sister Venus! I love the way Venus love you. Wish you guys more grand slam ahead.

  17. I’m sorry for the injury but one thing I know is that God’s time is the best, if it is not you today tomorrow definitely you be

  18. Nothing last forever not even Serena Williams. There was a time she ruled the world of tennis for many years and a time has come for her to vacate the scene for upcoming stars.

  19. Serena needs to retire I think , she’s trying but he has set records for her self as the best , or maybe she needs more effort because her system has change after having a baby

  20. She is a strong woman. She however needs to slow down because of age. No one stays in the limelight forever
