Serena with her French Open trophies, in 2002 and 2013


The French Open ended with a familiar champion who hasn’t won at Rolland Garros in 11 years. This victory in straight sets against long time nemesis if you can even call Maria Sharapova that, the latter not earning a victory in there last 13 head to head match lost this round 6-4, 6-4. As both players gave it there all grunt after grunt to the amusement of the crowed, it was the worlds number 1 ranked female Serena Williams who was victorious, redeeming herself after a shocking loss to a upper one hundred ranked opponent in last years French Open. At her press conference Serena was asked “Would you retire from tennis now at your peak” Serena simply replied “Have I reached my peak?”, being the second oldest women tennis player to win a major at a young 31 ( Martina Navratilova 33yrs old) and her second career grand slam victory why should she retire? After a great past year with victories at Wimbledon, US Open, Gold in England, and a 31 unbeaten match streak looks like this Williams sister has a lot left in the tank.
