“Come back please !”
“Hey Serena, it’s Roger. I wanted to congratulate you on your amazing career. You know what you have accomplished. I know what you did and we know it was just amazing. It is probably with mixed feelings that you leave this wonderful sport that has given you everything and more. I wish you the best for your family and your fans, and I’m one of them, you will be missed! I think back to the 1999 US Open, when you faced Martina Hingis. I had stayed up late to see you play and it was the start of a career that has been incredible. We will always welcome you with open arms and we will always be happy to see you again. So please come back!. In the meantime, enjoy this moment, enjoy this time at the US Open. I think of you, you have all my respect and I wish you the best for the future. Take care, Serena!“
