The legendary pro boxer Mike Tyson recently reacted to the legendary tennis player Serena Williams retiring at the US Open after displaying a gallant performance.
Mike Tyson opens up on Serena Williams
Mike Tyson, whose daughter Milan is a big fan of Williams, reacted to the news on social media:
“Watching @serenawilliams live last night with my daughter Milan with mixed emotions. Sad to see her go but happy for next part of her journey. The GOAT!”
Tyson certainly respects the 23-time Grand Slam champion, especially after his daughter got into the sport and started playing. ‘Iron Mike’ has attended several matches with her daughter and has always admired Williams. The pro boxing veteran has also talked about Williams’ controversial actions in the past.
Williams took on Ajla Tomljanović in the third round of the US Open at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. The American had already stated that this tournament would be her last, despite the result. After losing the first set, the 23-time Grand Slam winner put on an impressive performance in the second set.
Serena has won a total of 23 Grand Slam titles in her career making her the most decorated Women’s Singles tennis player in history. Williams walks away from tennis with 858 tour victories, 73 singles titles, an Olympic gold medal and 319 weeks at No. 1. Together with Venus, she won 14 major doubles titles and three Olympic golds.
Many reacted to his message to Serena Williams on Twitter. One fan wrote:
“Yeah man me too she is the greatest of all time in my opinion.”
Another user commented:
“Goat watching goat”
Another user commented how it must have felt for Milan to watch Williams’ last game with her father:
“Yessir and I saw that Milan plays tennis how cool for her to have that memory. Right On Mike!”
Yeah man me too she is the greatest of all time in my opinion.
