Ajla Tomljanovic defeats Serena Williams in three sets to end her 2022 US Open run

The career that many consider to be the best in tennis history appears to be coming to an end. After losing to Ajla Tomljanovic on Friday night 7-5, 6-7 (4-7), 6-1, Serena Williams is no longer eligible for the 2022 US Open.

The entire match was close with dramatic shifts in momentum and superb shotmaking from both players. Williams entered the court for the last time at the US Open. It will be remembered more than anything that occurred in the actual match.

Since she announced in early August that her playing days were coming to an end as she looks forward to expanding her family and business activities, the 40-year-old, 23-time Grand Slam champion’s plan to leave tennis has been well-documented.

This evening was about her lifetime spent on the court. Even though she will have a lifetime to develop and nurture her home life as she transitions away from it. Williams has stated often over the past 20 years that she receives every player’s best effort, and in her third-round loss to Tomljanovic, whose guts and mental fortitude were comparable to the icon across the net, she received just that.

Ajla Tomljanovic applied pressure to Williams poor forehand

Tomljanovic applied pressure to Williams poor forehand, which was responsible for many of her 51 unforced errors tonight while Williams was behind 5-3 in the first set and 5-2 in the second. She eventually won the first set, forced a tie break in the second, and won the match in the third.

Yet it wasn’t simple. Despite leading 5-1 in the third set, Williams saved five match points before her final shot dropped into the net to end the match.The images that will stick in people’s minds are those of Serena Williams. She is regarded as the greatest player in history.

“It’s been a fun ride,” Williams said after three hours and four minutes on the court- the longest US Open match of her career. “It’s been the most incredible ride and journey I’ve ever been on in my life. I’m just so grateful to every single person that’s ever said ‘Go Serena’ in their life. I’m just so grateful because you got me here.”

Ajla faced the difficult task

Tomljanovic faced the difficult task of striving to surpass her previous US Open progress while undermining one of her sporting role models.

“I’m feeling really sorry just because I love Serena just as much as you guys do,” Tomljanovic said. “What she’s done for me, for the sport of tennis is just incredible. I never thought I’d have a chance to play her in her last match when I was a kid watching her in all those finals. This is a surreal moment for me.”

“She embodies that no dream is too big. It doesn’t matter where you come from, the circumstances, you can do anything if you believe in yourself. You love what you do and you have an incredible support system and family around you,” Tomljanovic said.

Williams, who is expected to enter a new phase of her life, is prepared to move on. She wasn’t quite ready to say she wouldn’t ever set foot on a court again when the question was posed.

Williams responded, “I don’t think so, but you never know.”

When Tomljanovic faces Liudmila Samsonova in the fourth round on Sunday, she will need to recover from a three-hour physical and mental ordeal.
