Serena Williams has broken down in tears, not letting on if her Australian Open semi-final loss to Naomi Osaka will be her last-ever appearance at Melbourne Park.

Turning 40 in September, Williams’s latest quest to match Margaret Court’s all- time record of 24 grand slam singles crowns ended in a shattering 6-3 6-4 loss to Osaka on Thursday.

With her hand on heart, the American paid a touching tribute to the crowd before leaving Rod Laver Arena, raising the prospect that her 21st Open campaign may have been her last.

“I don’t know. If I ever say farewell, I wouldn’t tell anyone,” Williams said.

“So ..: I don’t know. The Aussie crowd is so amazing, so it was nice to see.”
