Serena nowhere close to retiring

http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...918524828.html

Q. Did you ever think about retiring at any point?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Doug, are you kidding me? I'm not retiring.
Oh, you mean, retiring in the match (laughter). Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you meant my career. Like, you're crazy.
Uhm, I mean, I thought about it like for a nanosecond. I mean, it's a quarterfinal of a Grand Slam. Even if I have to take off in a wheeler before I retire.

She's so funny. Never retire, Serena! Come back strong from this.

Good. But please stop playing doubles Serena, particularly outside Wimbledon. It's too much these days in your 30s.

Right now she is the dominant force of wta, as long as she stays healthy and motivated there's no reason to retire

Re: Serena nowhere close to retiring

Best athlete tennis has had for years!
Take now some time off Sarin, get better and come back fully healthy so you'll catch up with the likes of Navratilovas.
You can do this

Re: Serena nowhere close to retiring

Why would she retire from a match or from a sport in general while she enjoys it and has a good chance of winning

Idly does anyone remember the last time she retired in a match? It's at least been since 2009 I'm guessing.

Re: Serena nowhere close to retiring

Its funny how these retirement question always gets put to the older players every time they suffer a defeat, serena's won the last two slams, this was her first defeat in a long stretch of grand slam matches so why on earth do people think this would suddenly spark a decision to retire?
