– I really wanted to make an effort here. I’m feeling a lot of pain to walk, so this seems to be a sign that I should try to recover – Serena said in a brief press conference.
With that, Serena Williams, at 39, postpones the dream of reaching the Grand Slams record in tennis history. Currently with 23 titles of this level, the American tries to match Margaret Court, with 24, but has been on this winning hiatus since 2017, when she interrupted the season to become a mother. The next opportunity will be in January 2021, at the Australian Open.
Chances are good that Serena Williams will not play in the current season. According to the American, she will rest two weeks after the strong sequence of games and then focus on recovering from her injury, something that can take up to six weeks.
