US Open 2022 – One last stop on Serena Williams’ farewell tour

23-time Grand Slam singles champion Serena Williams continues her farewell tour after announcing her plan to “evolve” from tennis after the US Open.

Since making her professional debut in 1995, alongside her older sister Venus Williams, Williams has won 73 singles titles, 14 Grand Slam doubles titles, four Olympic gold medals and $94 million in prize money.

In Vogue magazine’s September 2022 issue, Williams spoke about her career, motherhood and her evolution away from tennis.

“It’s the hardest thing I could ever imagine” said Williams. “I don’t want it to be over, but at the same time I’m ready for what’s next.”

With her farewell tour in full swing, here is Williams’ list of recent tournaments.

US Open 2022

On Thursday, the US Open officially announced that Williams will compete in their final tournament at the event, which begins August 29 in New York.

After their farewell announcement on August 9, demand for tickets skyrocketed. About 13,000 US Open tickets were sold in that one day, tournament organizers told ABC News.

Williams is a six-time champion at the event and reached the semifinals in her last appearance of 2020.

Western & Southern Open 2022

The second stop on their tour was brief.

Williams lost in the opening round to reigning US Open champion Emma Raducanu and lost 6-4, 6-0 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

“We should all honor Serena and her amazing career,” Raducanu said after the game. “I’m so grateful for the experience of being able to play her and for crossing our careers. Everything she has achieved is so inspiring. It was a true honor to share the space with her.”

Canadian Open 2022

Williams was eliminated in the second round by Belinda Bencic after a 2-6, 4-6 loss in their final game on Canadian soil.

An emotional Williams hugged the raucous Toronto crowd as fans showered her with applause following her loss.

“I’m terrible at saying goodbye. But goodbye Toronto,” Williams said in an on-court interview after the game. “It was a pleasure to play all those years before you.”
