VIDEO: ‘I’m done’ – Tearful Serena Williams leaves press conference after tough Naomi Osaka loss

An emotional Serena Williams left a press conference in tears after struggling to come to terms with her Australian Open exit.

The 39-year-old lost out in the semi-finals to Naomi Osaka on Thursday in what was ultimately an error-laden performance.

Afterwards when questioned on her ‘bad day’ by reporters, she was visibly upset with how the match had gone, answering: “I don’t know, I’m done.”

“It was a big error day for me today,” the 39-year-old told the media after the match at Rod Laver Arena.

“The difference today was errors. Honestly, it was opportunities where I could have won. I could have been up five-love. I just made so many errors.

“I had so many opportunities, it was just, I made too many mistakes there and easy mistakes. Not like I was on the run or anything. They were just easy, easy mistakes.”

Serena made a gesture to the crowd as she left the court, and she was asked if that was a signal it may be her last Australian Open.

However, she was coy, replying: I don’t know. If I ever say farewell I wouldn’t tell anyone.”
