Serena Williams leaves news conference in tears, hints at retirement

Serena Williams left her Australian Open news conference in tears after her semi-final defeat by Naomi Osaka.

The American gave the crowd inside the Rod Laver Arena a long and extended wave goodbye with her hand on her heart as she was outclassed 6-3 6-4 by Naomi Osaka in the semi-finals.

“I don’t know. If I ever say farewell, I wouldn’t tell anyone,” Williams said.

Williams became tearful when asked a further question about her unforced errors against Osaka.

“I don’t know. I’m done,” she said, before leaving the room.

Williams thanked her fans in a post on Instagram shortly after the match.

“Today was not ideal outcome or performance but it happens. I am so honoured to be able to play in front of you all,” she wrote.

“Your support, your cheers, I only wish I could have done better for you today.

“I am forever in debt and grateful to each and every single one of you.”
