The tennis world is already going through a tough time with Roger Federer’s retirement issue. Meanwhile, Serena Williams’ struggle seems to be resurfacing. A distinguished role model to consider in this regard is that, Serena and Roger, they are just greats that the sport had to offer.
Serena Williams is undeniably one of the greatest to have dominated on the tennis court, only second to Margaret Court in terms of title collection which has collected 24 Grand Slams. But, as they say age is just a number, so can winning Grand Slams be. Like, there are many who don’t have many Grand Slam wins but are still great. Many believe that Serena is the best in history. With that on the way, we are in no way trying to minimize Margaret Court’s contribution to the sport.
Roger had this injury problem which made him suffer a lot. Even there was an incident where Roger came to play one last game with an injury but the dedication was so pure that he didn’t mention his injury just so the opponent didn’t seem to take advantage of it properly.
Greats are like that, and speaking of greats, we have to reveal Serena’s struggle that she had to endure for almost the entire part of her illustrious career.
Serena has suffered multiple injuries during her 27-year career, including a leg injury at the Wimbledon Championship, which forced her to retire from tennis for an entire year. Serena also suffered a knee injury early in her career and struggled with blood clots during the birth of her daughter Olympia.
However, this comeback queen bravely overcame her obstacles and mesmerized fans with her record-breaking plays. This time, Serena reveals her migraine problem which left her in excruciating pain.
During an interview in 2020, Serena revealed her migraine problem, which cost her numerous Grand Slam titles. Previously, Serena did not reveal this disease as it is not a knee injury that everyone can see.
She pointed to people’s generic response when the injury is not obvious. For these types of injuries, “You can’t really say, ‘Oh, dad, I have a migraine. I’m going to stop playing,” because people will just tell you to toughen up.
She also refrained from revealing this issue to the press, as it would appear that she was just giving excuses. Despite her excruciating pain, she had to find a way to get through it and overcome herself.
Of course, with the recent retirement of this renowned tennis player, we could all feel a hole in the world of tennis.
