Serena Williams retires from tennis

Tennis star and legend Serena Williams announced Tuesday she would retire soon, likely at the conclusion of the US Open, according to an article published by Williams in Vogue.

"I have never liked the word retirement," said Williams. "Maybe the best word to describe what I'm up to is evolution. I'm here to tell you that I'm evolving away from tennis toward other things that are important to me."

Williams, 40, concludes her career with 73 titles, 23 double titles, and more than $94 million in earnings. "I never wanted to have to choose between tennis and a family. I don't think it's fair," she added.
