After defeating Caroline Wozniacki on Sunday to claim her 18th Grand Slam, Serena Williams joined Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert for the third most Grand Slam singles titles in the Open – a feat she had been on the doorstep of accomplishing for the past 12 months.
In and of itself, it is an incredible feat and yet another accomplishment for the dominant Williams sister. While many have questioned the continued ability of Williams in lieu of recent struggles on the court over the past year, Serena proved once against why she is still the best female tennis player today. Chris Evert even claims Williams is not just the best right now, but that she is undoubtedly the best female tennis player to ever play.
History is still within the grasp of Williams – she sits four Grand Slam titles away from tying Steffi Graf (22) and six away from Margaret Court (24). Two weeks away from her 33rd birthday, Serena proved that she still have enough left in the tank to make a run at these two historic stars and their records.
