Serena Williams, the 23-time Grand Slam winner and an inspiration for millions across the globe, has been eliminated from the US Open in the third round at Arthus Ashe Stadium after she lost to Ajla Tomljanovic. The match was expected to be the last match of her transcendent tennis career on Friday night. Williams ended in the third round on Friday with a 7-5, 6-7 (4/7) 6-1 loss.
She also clarified she will re-direct her curiosity and drive into her investment firm, Serena Ventures. She’ll kindle her spiritual life. She’ll evolve as a mom. “I think I’m good at it," she says of parenthood. “But I want to explore if I can be great at it."
Speaking about her next, i.e. Serena Ventures, she told Vogue earlier this month, that the investment firm has now funded 16 companies valued at $1 billion or more, and that 78 percent of its portfolio are companies started by women or people of color.
