Serena Williams says goodbye to the audience after being eliminated in the 1st round of this year’s Wimbledon.

The 40-year-old tennis player announced her decision in an interview with Vogue magazine, which was published on Tuesday morning. “I want to tell you that I’m moving away from tennis to other things that are important to me,” Williams is quoted as saying by the magazine.

She revealed that she quietly founded Serena Ventures, a venture capital firm, a few years ago. “Shortly after that, I started a family and I want to expand it.”

The American already hinted at her impending end after Monday’s win at the National Open tournament in Toronto, where she recorded her first triumph in more than a year. At the end of her career, she failed to equal the all-time record of 24 titles from the Big Four tournaments held by Margaret Court.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready to win Wimbledon this year,” she said. On the courts of the All England Club, she was already unable to beat Harmony Tanová in the 1st round. “And I don’t know if I’ll be ready to win in New York. But I’m going to try,” Serena stated.
