Serena Williams isn't quite prepared to say goodbye yet

Alongside Arthur, Williams took the short walk to the practise courts

People shouting "Serenaaaaa" from the bleachers above the practise area greeted her

Williams wasn't performing at her best. There were two faults. Various other opportunities and missed shots

After taking the lead 2-0 she immediately fell down 3-2

In a ceremony following her victory, Williams still hadn't made it clear that she was retiring

There are other chapters in life, she said, that she is ready and prepared for different things

Her husband and daughter entered the court during the ceremony

Williams will continue to compete now, taking on Estonia’s Anett Kontveit, the No. 2 seed, on Wednesday

When the time is right, Williams will definitely take pleasure in a fairy-tale farewell
