Serena Williams bids tearful farewell to Toronto after first match since announcing her retirement

Aug 11, 2022

The Serena Williams farewell tour is officially in effect.

A day after she announced her pending retirement from tennis, the 23-time Grand Slam champion took the court on Wednesday to a standing ovation in Toronto at the National Bank Open.

The match turned out to be her last at the event. Williams defeated Nuria Parrizas Diaz in opening round play on Monday, her first victory in just her third match of an injury-plagued 2022 season.
