ESPN - Serena Williams' run at the 2021 Australian Open is now officially over; it was ended in straight sets in the semifinals by her heir apparent, Naomi Osaka. And then, to no one's surprise, the questions began pouring in: Was the match all that was over? Less than an hour after the match, Williams was asked if her brief on-court moment was a goodbye, of sorts. "I don't know," William said in her news conference. "If I ever say farewell, I wouldn't tell anyone." Briefly after, Williams was gone again, leaving behind more questions than answers.
