Serena Williams’ legendary tennis career — likely over after third-round singles’ play loss at U.S. Open

Serena Williams’ legendary tennis career may have ended when she was knocked out of the third round of the U.S. Open by No. 6-seeded Jana Novakovic of Slovenia.

Williams lost 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 to the third-seeded Novakovic, who defeated Serena in the opening round of the U.S. Open.

“[It’s] definitely emotional,” Williams said. “It’s disappointing. I don’t think I played all my shots well and I definitely didn’t play my best. I definitely took advantage of some of her mistakes.”

Williams also said it’s painful to have to watch Novakovic play on television.

“It’s hard to watch your own game on television, and especially something like that,” she said. “That’s why I think it’s more difficult to play in singles, but I definitely have a lot to improve.

“I definitely have a lot to be better from my mental game, I have a lot to be better from the physical game. So it’s a lot of things that I definitely need to improve.”

Williams, who was the No. 1 player in the world, also has to work twice as hard as her opponents to beat them at the U.S. Open.

“I definitely feel like I’m better than any of them,” she said
