Serena Williams has always had a taste for drama.

Now, with her storied tennis career coming to an end – Williams announced plans earlier this month to hang up her racquet after the 2022 US Open – the question is: can she start again?

Williams hasn’t won a major tournament since 2017, when she won the Australian Open. It’s been even longer since she last won the US Open – she last lifted the silver trophy in 2014.

Perhaps one last major trophy is too far a dream. But for Williams, arguably the greatest tennis player of all time, the chance to leave an indelible mark on the court where she was so dominant is alluring.

Williams clinched her first major trophy at the US Open. It was 1999 and Williams was just a teenager, oblivious to the success she would achieve in her career. She sprawled across the green and blue sidewalk as her signature white beads swirled in the autumn air.

Now she is 40 years old. And while the athleticism may have waned, Williams’ desire for “the moment” hasn’t diminished. With a first-round clash against Danka Kovinic of Montenegro, it’s a real strength, especially as Williams looks to leave fans with positive memories of their last major competition.
