Tennis News: Serena Williams lost in Toronto, her first loss since declaring her impending tennis retirement

Tennis News: After suffering her first loss since declaring her impending tennis retirement, Serena Williams said “goodbye” to Toronto and acknowledged that she is “awful at goodbyes.”

Just one day prior to her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Belinda Bencic in the second round of the National Bank Open, the 23-time Grand Slam victor had said in a Vogue article that she was “moving away from tennis” and intended to give up the game she had dominated for more than two decades.

“I love playing here, I’ve always loved playing here. I wish I could have played better but Belinda played so well today. It’s been an interesting 24 hours.

“As I said in the article, I’m terrible at goodbyes. But, goodbye Toronto.”

“Anyways, this is what it is,” she told the crowd in Toronto as she wiped away a tear.
