History

Serena Jameka Williams (born September 26, 1981) is an American professional tennis player. She has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the most by any player in the Open Era, and the second-most of all time behind Margaret Court (24). The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) ranked her singles world No. 1 on eight separate occasions between 2002 and 2017. On her sixth occasion, she held the ranking for 186 consecutive weeks, tying the record set by Steffi Graf. In total, she has been WTA No. 1 for 319 weeks, which ranks third since WTA Rankings began behind Graf and Martina Navratilova. She is the only American player, male or female, to win more than 20 majors.

 Williams is widely regarded to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time. She holds the most major titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined among active players, with 39: 23 in singles, 14 in women's doubles, and two in mixed doubles. She is joint-third on the all-time list and second in the Open Era for total major titles accumulated. She is the most recent woman to have held all four major singles titles simultaneously (2002–03 and 2014–15) and the third player to achieve this twice, after Rod Laver and Graf. Williams is also the most recent woman to have won the Surface Slam (major titles on hard, clay and grass in the same calendar year), doing so in 2015. She is also, together with her older sister Venus, the most recent player to have held all four Grand Slam women's doubles titles simultaneously (2009–10).

 Williams has won a record 13 Grand Slam singles titles on hard court. Williams holds the Open Era record for most women's singles titles at the Australian Open and shares the Open Era record for most titles won at the US Open with Chris Evert. She also holds the records for the most women's singles matches won at majors with 365 matches and most singles majors won since turning 30 years old. She is the only tennis player, male or female, to have won three of the four Grand Slams at least 6 times. Williams is also a five-time winner of the WTA Tour Championships in the singles division.
