Lakers’ LeBron James Reacts To Serena Williams Final Match Of Her Career


Lakers forward James sent a sincere message to Serena Williams following the final match of her brilliant tennis career.

Williams, who turned 41 years later this month, dropped out of the US Open in the third round – having confirmed before the tournament that it would be her last.

She produced a show for ages to knock down No two seed Anett Kontaveit in the second round, but her tie against Australian Ajla Tomljanovic proved to be one step too close as she lost 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-1.

The curtain is now closing on the career of one of the greatest gamblers of all time. Williams won 23 Grand Slam titles and spent 319 weeks as world #1, including a joint record of 186 consecutive weeks between 2013 and 2016.

Future Hall of Famer LeBron James recorded a video message, which he captioned ‘#SerenaWilliams THANK YOU!! You’re so damn DOPE!!’. 

“Serena, [it’s] LeBron here,” said James.. Wow, where do I start. First of all, I can start by just saying congratulations to you, to an unbelievable career. You’re a GOAT. What you have done for the sport of tennis, what you’ve done for women, and what you’ve done for the category of sport, period, is unprecedented.”

“It’s been an honor to watch your journey, to watch you conquer all the goals you ever set out, to see you break records, to see you be amazing and transcendent, not only on the tennis court, but also off.
‘I literally could sit here and talk about your journey and just talk about watching you from afar and our relationship now for an hour, but I don’t want to bore you too much about stuff that you already know!
‘So I just want to say thank you for just being this inspiration for so many and never putting yourself out there where you didn’t feel like you were the greatest. Congratulations once again and I wish you nothing but the greatest journey ahead of you and every endeavor that you have outside of your respective sport.”

He added, “You’ve been unbelievable, I salute you and when I see you I’ll give you a big, giant hug as well to show my appreciation.”
