Of course it was Karen who triggered her...
great to see that she still has passion for the game

It’s human to be sad when you lose something that’s important to you.

“A farewell to tennis”is what triggered her reaction

What happened was, Serena played a younger version of herself.
She beat #2 and lost to the best in the game in the SEMIFINALS at 39. Why are reporters trying to make it seem like she did so awful that she is quitting? She was great this tournament. She’s actually improved from last year. She’s going up in the rankings.

I feel like it's perfectly okay to lose no matter what stage of life you're at.
She secured her legacy in tennis. She can quit or keep playing and still be a legend.

2:09 whoever that is coughing in the backround need to go home right now lol
Serena talks about her making errors when realistically Naomi just played very well

she is still in denial having always been a winner, we all know how great she has been all these years i think she should not beat herself up for losing.

Ray Rosas:
I love Serena Williams, she’s so damn competitive, that’s why she’s so emotional. The fact that she didn’t beat Osaka is eating her up.

Sure, it was “just me playing bad”, not “her playing good.” That could never happen, that someone else plays well...

Osaka has a great tennis career ahead of her.

Osaka played like a BEAST! Errors or no errors that was a major factor.
Honestly, I think its normal and ok for her to be emotional. She’s been at the top of this game for so long. And it’s not like she’s “stepping down”, she’s still active in the sport. And frankly, still young in general. But her life has evolved and so has she. When everyone around you is almost begging for you to hang up the jersey so they can get their headline story, instead of allowing you to come to terms with the inevitable change life will bring to your performance, it may present a conflict. I think what we’re seeing is a athletic giant coping with the reality that their full prowess is now rivaled. And when you’re a professional athlete, it’s just “sportsmanship”, it’s your identity.
"My opponent played well."
Never seems to be popular with grandiose characters.
Given that Serena is 39 years old and still reaching semi-finals and all, is nothing short of amazing. Well done Serena!

C 'mon now. Naomi played some great tennis and you re giving her no credit. The errors weren t the problem, nor could you have been 5-0 above. She played agresive and it s her time to shine .
No respect or props to her skilled opponent. Shocker 🤭

I've always thought that they should let players mourn their loss and let them decide whether want to talk or not. These conferences soon after losing is torture especially when you're already beating up on yourself.

Arthur Woodhouse
Arthur Woodhouse:
When asked what was the difference today. Serena responds with errors. Why can’t she say the truth that Naomi played better and deserved the win. Why when she loses it’s her fault? Isn’t she allowed to get beaten???
Señoritas Top's
Señoritas Top's:
Muy disciplinada
This parting farewell question was killing her. It took a few seconds for the feeling to get to her. And then she could no longer hold it in. I think she's great and I hope she finds the right time to leave the stage.
I don't suppose Osaka's terrific shot had anything to do with your loss then Serena??

Hahaha...I’m done
I love it. This just made my day
Obviously a very tired disappointed woman.
It's just about Serena though not her opponent. You can only play as well as your opponent let's you play. Could have been up 5 have been. Be nice to hear an American supreme athlete like her give credit where it's due. Osaka played well through the tournament and now she's the champion. Serena will go down as one of the best and she's playing amazing tennis in her late 30's. Pity she didnt show the respect she should as such in finals such as the 2018 US final,ironically against Osaka. It's a very competitive sport and ego can get carried away.

D. nada:
Great Job Serena! The emotions make sense when you have played a sport for so long professionally. It's the knowing that you might be closer to retiring, knowing the end of that part of your life could be near is what hits you especially when you have been so successful.

Does she ever give credit to her opponent.?

Just admit Osaka overpowered her.....she played well but Osaka was better!!!!

She was totally outclassed, and shocked, at the end of the match, but not one nice thing to say about Naomi...

I think Serena WIlliams should be proud about herself in terms of how she reached to this stage of her tennis career. At her age, players do not play like her. She still has fire in her. Amazing spirit.

She never gives credit to her opponents! She never says they played well, it’s always like she didn’t have a good day
Its ok Serena, you are a legend, maybe its time to quit while yiu are still on the top ..

you’re a legend. always. forever. 💛💛💛💛
I think that farewell question really touched her. Maybe she's realizing the changing of the guards with younger players like naomi, bb, iga. She already had so much success with her long career she needs to play without putting too much pressure to herself.

It must be hard for her to accept what's she facing...reality
2:49 Triggered by the word, "farewell".
3:05 Continuing to struggle with her inner emotions. Pretends she needs a sip of water.
3:19 Tries desperately to hold it together internally. It's getting harder to mask the emotional damage.
3:25 The inevitable.

Still the GOAT regardless.

It all happens with age, you are a Queen, love Respect Serena❤
Osaka is a tough opponent for Williams. One of the few matchups where Williams can not overpower her opponent which means, to win, she needs to play smart, focused and disciplined. She couldn't do that today.
Eventually the old lion or lioness in this case will lose her spot to a younger lion(ess). It's a natural course.

I remember staying up late to watch you play and calling my sister to watch also we both love you

Serena made so many errors because Naomi hit the ball really harder than her previous opponents. The faster the ball is, the more mistakes that Serena made. She did not lose herself today, Naomi is just too tough.

Time for her to open one of the Tennis Academy! 😏 And to relax a little bit!
Adrain Evans
Adrain Evans:
It was definitely a tough loss. I was watching Osaka thinking , " wow I remember when Serena played this fearless!'" Even watching Sabalenka I was just in awe of these girls playing their idols and being so fearless , just as Serena was when she played her Idol Monica. Tennis is crazy , the best form of flattery is to defeat the person who molded you! Its so hard to watch Serena these days, you can just see weight of history on her shoulders! We got to see nice glimpse of the of greatness this tournament though and I will never count her out!

To be the greatest, you have to be the humblest. In this case, Serena is at the end of the line.

Boohoo! True champs know how to lose. Not SW
Serena has been an awesome player in the past,and can still reach the final of a Slam at her age. What I don’t like about her is her ego and expectation that she can still bully players off the court. Still can’t forgive, or forget her behaviour against Naomi and officials in the US disrespectful.
Marcel Jansen
Marcel Jansen:
Big big ego stuff...'making errors..'.what about winners made by Naomi? Grow up Serena.

Looks like she’s triggered by the “farewell” word.
Also, I feel bad for the opening reporter calling on "Karen"
