Williams was one of the most prolific players of all time tennis stars. She won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the most of any player in the Open Era and the second-most all-time titles behind Margaret Court.

The 40-year-old also won the most major tournaments for women in tennis history and won four Olympic gold medals.

The list of Williams’ achievements and accolades will likely continue to grow, and if we never see her on the court again, then will be tough. However, she does not rule out a return.

“I don’t think so, but you never know,” Williams said when asked about his retirement.
