Serena Williams has 23 Grand Slam titles to her name.
Serena Williams has been a champion for how long? In the twentieth century, she won her first Grand Slam singles title.
Williams was 17 years old when she won the US Open in 1999.
He had beads in her hair and enough of sting in her strokes even at that early point when she knocked out five past or future major winners, including the 18-year-old Martina Hingis in the final.
"Oh, my God, I won, oh my God," Williams exclaimed, hand to her chest, as astonished as the rest of us.
Seven of Williams' previous major singles wins have come against her older sister Venus, who was born only 15 months before her.
Williams, who announced her retirement from tennis in Vogue this month, is one championship short of Margaret Court's career record of 24 Grand Slam singles trophies.
