Australian Open: Serena Williams leaves information convention in tears after Naomi Osaka loss

by newsking24

Serena Williams left her Australian Open information convention in tears after her semi-final defeat by Naomi Osaka.

The American nice noticed her newest bid for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title ended by Japan’s three-time main champion Osaka, who gained 6-Three 6-4.

She gave the gang inside Rod Laver Arena a protracted wave goodbye together with her hand over her coronary heart, resulting in questions over the 39-year-old’s future.

She responded: “I don’t know. If I ever say farewell, I wouldn’t tell anyone.”

Williams grew to become tearful when requested an additional query about her unforced errors in opposition to Osaka.

“I don’t know. I’m done,” she mentioned, earlier than leaving the room.

Williams thanked her followers in a publish on Instagram shortly after the match.

“Today was not ideal outcome or performance but it happens. I am so honoured to be able to play in front of you all,” she wrote.

“Your support, your cheers, I only wish I could have done better for you today.

“I’m eternally in debt and grateful to each single one among you.”

‘Wimbledon is Williams’ greatest probability’

Williams has been aiming to equal Margaret Court’s major record since her return from maternity leave in 2018.

Her 23 Grand Slam titles is the most by any player in the Open Era, with 13 of Court’s titles coming before the tour became fully professional.

Since her return, Williams has reached four Grand Slam finals but lost them all, including to Osaka at the 2018 US Open.

Former British number one Annabel Croft says Wimbledon, where Williams has won eight titles, is her best chance to equal Court’s record.

“Serena appeared to be in a contented place and I used to be pondering that is it – that is the time she goes to win her 24th,” Croft advised BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Time will not be on her aspect, although. You need to marvel at nicely she is taking part in contemplating there may be such an enormous distinction in age in opposition to a few of her opponents.

“The draw would weirdly have to open up for her [to win] but it is not beyond the realms of possibility.”

It is the primary time in 18 years that Williams has misplaced an Australian Open semi-final.

It can also be her first loss in opposition to a prime 5 opponent at a tough courtroom Grand Slam since she was crushed by Jelena Jankovic within the Australian Open final 16 in 2008.

Osaka, who has usually spoken of her admiration for Williams, mentioned speak of the American retiring made her “said”.

“I want her to play forever,” Osaka mentioned. “That’s the little kid in me.”

“Every time I play her, I feel like it’s something I’ll definitely remember a lot.”
