Serena Williams to retire in her home grand slam

US Open: Serena Williams’ last hurrah at home grand slam headlines fascinating two weeks of tennis

It is all to come down to one of the most electrifying shows in tennis history

The 2017 Australian Open Grand Slam of Women’s Tennis will take place on Monday at Melbourne Park, with Serena Williams set to close out her career at her home grand slam.

Her time at Melbourne Park is coming to an end on Sunday, when she is scheduled to retire from the match in her final match. Although she has made some incredible runs on the clay court over the years, her last match on the hard court will be Williams’ final appearance on the court.

Williams has been in fine form at the Australian Open this year.

Williams was unable to win at Roland Garros for the first time since the 2013 French Open, but the former No. 1 has since defeated her French Open runner-up, Angelique Kerber in the quarterfinals.

Williams closed out the clay court season with a victory over French Open semifinalist Caroline Garcia that sent her to the quarterfinals for the second successive year.

Williams will close out her remarkable career at No. 14 in the all-time Grand Slam rankings, which are at No. 6 by Serena.

Serena Williams will retire in her home grand slam, but that’s not going to be what stops her from playing like she did for most of her career.

Williams reached her 37th career grand slam final, her highest career Slam singles ranking, this year. She last reached a Slam final in 2012,
