I feel like it's perfectly okay to lose no matter what stage of life you're at.

What happened was, Serena played a younger version of herself.

“A farewell to tennis”is what triggered her reaction

She beat #2 and lost to the best in the game in the SEMIFINALS at 39. Why are reporters trying to make it seem like she did so awful that she is quitting? She was great this tournament. She’s actually improved from last year. She’s going up in the rankings.

she is still in denial having always been a winner, we all know how great she has been all these years i think she should not beat herself up for losing.

Sure, it was “just me playing bad”, not “her playing good.” That could never happen, that someone else plays well...

Osaka played like a BEAST! Errors or no errors that was a major factor.

Great Job Serena! The emotions make sense when you have played a sport for so long professionally. It's the knowing that you might be closer to retiring, knowing the end of that part of your life could be near is what hits you especially when you have been so successful.

Given that Serena is 39 years old and still reaching semi-finals and all, is nothing short of amazing. Well done Serena!
Ray Rosas
Ray Rosas:
I love Serena Williams, she’s so damn competitive, that’s why she’s so emotional. The fact that she didn’t beat Osaka is eating her up.
Arthur Woodhouse
Arthur Woodhouse:
When asked what was the difference today. Serena responds with errors. Why can’t she say the truth that Naomi played better and deserved the win. Why when she loses it’s her fault? Isn’t she allowed to get beaten???
RoyalBob
RoyalBob:
She is GOAT athlete. Should gracefully give credit to her opponent and accept that there is a new champ in town. She and her fans behaved despicably in US open final (2018). Type of sore losers.:)

Damn she lost to her again

I think that farewell question really touched her. Maybe she's realizing the changing of the guards with younger players like naomi, bb, iga. She already had so much success with her long career she needs to play without putting too much pressure to herself.
Truth makes you free.

"My problem was errors" But just 1 forhand winner first set..."Still was errors.." 🤔

Tough to watch her realize her own mortality in a sport she has dominated for so long. I hope tennis fans can appreciate her and guys like Roger as their days left on a tennis court are numbered. #legends

I've always thought that they should let players mourn their loss and let them decide whether want to talk or not. These conferences soon after losing is torture especially when you're already beating up on yourself.

I think Serena WIlliams should be proud about herself in terms of how she reached to this stage of her tennis career. At her age, players do not play like her. She still has fire in her. Amazing spirit.

I just saw the interview today. Watching that match was so hard to watch between her and Osaka. I was rooting for her the entire time. I think that world was rooting for her. I really hope she come back with a fire and tie the world's record.....CMack

This parting farewell question was killing her. It took a few seconds for the feeling to get to her. And then she could no longer hold it in. I think she's great and I hope she finds the right time to leave the stage.

Osaka is a tough opponent for Williams. One of the few matchups where Williams can not overpower her opponent which means, to win, she needs to play smart, focused and disciplined. She couldn't do that today.

C 'mon now. Naomi played some great tennis and you re giving her no credit. The errors weren t the problem, nor could you have been 5-0 above. She played agresive and it s her time to shine .

I love watching you play so please don't stop playing now

I remember staying up late to watch you play and calling my sister to watch also we both love you

Serena made so many errors because Naomi hit the ball really harder than her previous opponents. The faster the ball is, the more mistakes that Serena made. She did not lose herself today, Naomi is just too tough.

Everything she did, Naomi did a little bit better, so how can she win?
vrintige

Honestly, I think its normal and ok for her to be emotional. She’s been at the top of this game for so long. And it’s not like she’s “stepping down”, she’s still active in the sport. And frankly, still young in general. But her life has evolved and so has she. When everyone around you is almost begging for you to hang up the jersey so they can get their headline story, instead of allowing you to come to terms with the inevitable change life will bring to your performance, it may present a conflict. I think what we’re seeing is a athletic giant coping with the reality that their full prowess is now rivaled. And when you’re a professional athlete, it’s just “sportsmanship”, it’s your identity.

Naomi didn’t let Serena play her game and forced her to be off balance like the way Serena played against Sharapova. That’s it!

It was definitely a tough loss. I was watching Osaka thinking , " wow I remember when Serena played this fearless!'" Even watching Sabalenka I was just in awe of these girls playing their idols and being so fearless , just as Serena was when she played her Idol Monica. Tennis is crazy , the best form of flattery is to defeat the person who molded you! Its so hard to watch Serena these days, you can just see weight of history on her shoulders! We got to see nice glimpse of the of greatness this tournament though and I will never count her out!
