“I think the sky’s the limit for her now”

Martina Navratilova watched a clip of Serena Williams practicing before her second-round match and noticed her movement seemed improved.

And immediately he had a thought.

I was like, “Oh, Serena is back. So yeah, I think the sky’s the limit for her now. I wouldn’t put it past her to win the whole thing.

Good afternoon!

Hello and welcome to Serena Williams’ last night as a professional tennis player.

Williams signaled her intention to retire in a Vogue magazine article in early August, saying she had “evolved away from tennis”, but never confirmed the US Open as her final event. And the 23-time grand slam champion has managed to postpone her impending retirement so far with emphatic wins over Danka Kovinic and Anett Kontaveit. This afternoon she takes on the highly successful Australian Ajla Tomljanovic at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

“She was playing pretty intense and I really watched her matches a lot,” Williams said. “He’s been through a lot of injuries, so I kind of respect that. I think it’s going to be a good match.”

For Tomljanovic, the match is a dream come true. “It’s definitely something I’ll never forget in my career,” Tomljanovic said. “It’s going to be a huge moment regardless of the outcome. I’ve been a Serena fan since I was a kid. On Friday night I’m just going to be a competitor and do my best to win. I think she’s changed the sport of tennis, but also what she has done globally for women in sport is incredible

“She’s paved the way for so many, she’s inspired me to go for my dreams. Even her longevity. I’m kind of at the part of my career now where you’re called on the older side. She’s made that kind of thing not exist.” Old’ is not even a word in her vocabulary. I am very grateful to her like that. I don’t think there’s anyone like her, obviously.”

Thirty percent of users who tweeted about Williams in August had not tweeted about tennis all year, and 67 percent of those who tweeted about her in August had not tweeted about her all year, Twitter revealed.

While tickets to see the player many consider to be the greatest of all time have also skyrocketed. The price of admission to watch tonight’s game is $565, ​​while the cheapest ticket in the Lower Level of Arthur Ashe Stadium is $4,361, according to retailer TickPick.
