Serena Williams up there with Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert
September 8 , 2014
Serena Williams has joined Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert on the list of all-time Grand Slam winners by defeating Caroline Wozniacki 6-3 6-3 in the US Open final to win her 18th Grand Slam title.
Navratilova and Evert were present during the ceremony to honor Williams. Another victory will see the 32-year-old American go past the two legends, with only Steffi Graph with 21 Grand Slam titles ahead of her.
Williams said she could never imagine that her name would one day be taken alongside Evert or Navratilova “because I was just a kid with a dream and a racquet.”
