Former Indian tennis player Prakash Amritraj has acknowledged the greatness of Serena and Venus Williams as he would like to see the Williams retire on the big stage such as Wimbledon or the US Open. Serena, 40, hasn't played since last year's Wimbledon but she is attempting to make another comeback.
On the other side, Venus hasn't played since losing in the Chicago 2 first round in September. Serena is a 23-time Grand Slam champion in singles, while Venus has seven Grand Slams in her collection. "Venus Williams and Serena Williams are at a stage where if they retire right now, we would just need twelve months to just be able to celebrate even a fraction of what they've given all of us all around the world," Amritraj said on Tennis Channel, as quoted on Sportskeeda.
"What I would love to see is that it happens at an event that is historic for them, whether it is at Wimbledon or US Open."
'The Williams sisters have transcended the sport'
The Williams sisters have left a major mark in the history of the game as they will go down as two great champions.
Serena even more than Venus as many believe that Serena is the one that should be considered as the GOAT. "They are certainly their own legacy, and they have transcended the sport. What they've meant to everyone all around the world is tough to put into words.
I think what Serena posted in her last Instagram post, over a ton of them going around about this shoot [for Harper's Bazaar], she said, 'One soul, two bodies.' "I think that's a perfect description of not only how just these two sisters feel but how the entire family feels together.
It's always about something more, and they're able to pull a little extra out of them. The code she described there is why I think they have been so successful."
