Serena Williams hits a milestone with her victory on Sunday.
Serena Williams’ 300th career victory at a grand slam secured her a place in the 4th round of Wimbledon. Her latest win breaks a tie with Chris Evert’s 299 wins. Now she is just six wins behind the record of 306 set by Martina Navratilova.
The defending champion, now almost 35, beat her competitor Annika Beck by 6-3, 6-0 in just 51 minutes.The World No.1 player said she had no idea she hit the plateau unless she was asked in a post match interview.
Since 2004, it was the first time Middle Sunday was played and Williams had played it then as well, where she won a match over Magui Serna. She lost her finals that year to Maria Sharapova.
She will now face the 31 year old Russian veteran, Svetlana Kuznetsova, a 2 time Grand Slam winner. May the best person win!
