Serena Williams is in that rarefied air like Michael Jordan or Wayne Gretzky or Roger Federer, she transcends the sport

Serena Williams is being talked about by many players ahead of the US Open and it's natural because this will be her final event.

The American legendary player will retire at the end of the US Open and embark on the next chapter of her career. Williams is heavily praised and respected by all tennis players and John Isner spoke very highly of her ahead of the US Open:

"I think tennis is going to miss Serena's presence sorely. But the good thing about Serena I think is she will always be around. She's an incredible athlete and will be every bit as popular when she's done with tennis as she ever was when she was playing."

Similar to what many others have said, Isner too believes that she has transcended the sport and always will be synonymous with tennis:

"She's sort of in that rarefied air like a Michael Jordan or like a Wayne Gretzky and Roger Federer where she's just sort of transcends the sport a bit. She will be missed. Fans, colleagues and everyone alike will miss watching her compete."
