In this new instagram photo, world no.1 in women’s singles tennis, Serena Jameka Williams, took time out with a pose with her tennis team in what she calls, “our amazing tennis team.”
Born in September 26, 1981, the American tennis player and actress has won 22 Grand Slam titles: 7 Wimbledon trophies, 6 US Open laurels, 3 French Open, and 6 Australia Open trophies. The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has ranked her world No. 1 in singles on six separate occasions.
Her record of 38 major titles puts her fourth on the all-time list and second in the open era: 22 in singles, 14 in women’s doubles, and two in mixed doubles. She is the most recent female player to have held all four major singles titles simultaneously (2002–03 and 2014–15) and the third player, male or female, to achieve this record twice after Rod Laver and Steffi Graf. She is also the most recent player, together with her sister Venus Williams, to have held all four Grand Slam women’s doubles titles simultaneously (2009–10).
