Beijing tennis tournament in China

American player Serena Williams, the former world’s first ranked, decided to withdraw from the Beijing Tennis Championships officially, putting the final word on her career this season.

The legendary player succeeded in winning the first edition of the Beijing Tennis tournament, which was held in 2004, and also crowned the title again in the 2013 edition.

The brunette player has been absent in Beijing since her last appearance in the 2014 edition, after the competitions called for the quarterfinals in front of Australian player Samantha Stosur.

Serena suffered greatly in the recent period after deciding to be a mother, where she was exposed to major health problems due to pregnancy and childbirth, which removed her from the yellow ball pitches for a considerable period.

The 36-year-old was only involved in two tournaments in 2017, where she moved away due to pregnancy and following the arrival of her first child Olympia.

The emergence of the American legend in 2018, started through the Indian Wales Masters Championship, but it went through difficult circumstances and suffered greatly in order to regain its levels, by reaching the fourth round of the French Open tennis championship “Roland Garros “.

Then Serena regained her temper and standard at the Wimbledon Open, one of the Grand Slam championships, where she reached the final but lost to German woman Angelique Kerber.

otherwise, the younger sister of the Williams family continued to glow at the US Open Grand Slam Tennis, after continuing her career success and reached the final, but lost the title in favor of the Japanese star Osaka in a game that saw great controversy on the part of Serena.
