Serena Williams has won 73 WTA singles titles: 23 of these are Grand Slam events (absolute record in the Open Era, men included), making her the second player ever to have won more Majors in this specialty behind only Margaret Smith Court, with 24 .
She completed the virtual Grand Slam, which consists in winning four consecutive Slams not in the same calendar year, twice (in the two years 2002-2003 and 2014-2015). She has also won five year-end Master Cups and 19 Premier category tournaments (6 Premier Mandatory, 6 Premier 5 and 7 Premier), as well as 21 Tier I and Tier II titles and a gold medal from the London Olympics in 2012 against Maria Sharapova.
Not only in singles Serena Williams can boast numerous victories, but also in women’s doubles and mixed doubles, where there are 16 other Grand Slam tournaments: 14 won with her older sister Venus and two in mixed doubles, both obtained with Maks Mirny in 1998. To these successes must be added three other gold medals at the Olympics, all won together with Venus, a Federation Cup and two Hopman Cups.
In 2021, Serena missed the US Open due to a hamstring injury which she got at Wimbledon. Serena has been spotted attending various events around town. She was also busy with the release of the movie King Richard, which is based on the lives of the Williams family.
Serena is married to Alexis Ohanian, founder of Reddit and a great lover of sports and cinema. Alexis praised last MCU movie Spider Man: No Way Home, with Tom Holland, Zendaya and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Ohanian watched Spider-Man: No Way Home, and he was amazed by the movie. The movie played with the hearts of the fans, showing a product that was acclaimed all over the world. He tweeted: “New Spiderman was fantastic! Thanks for not ruining it for me, Twitter.”
Serena will not come back on the court for the Australian Open 2022, due to the injury she suffered last Summer at Wimbledon. She didn’t take the court from the first round at the Championships and she should come back after the Australian Swing.
