Serena Williams Just Tied The Biggest Record In Tennis

At this point, she might be the best tennis player of all time.

By Carter Woodiel | July 9, 2016

Serena Williams won the Wimbledon singles title Saturday and made tennis history in the process.

Williams' straight-sets victory over Angelique Kerber was her 22nd Grand Slam tournament win, tying her with Steffi Graf for the most in Open-era history.

The win is another notch in the belt for Williams' legacy, and when it's all said and done, it wouldn't be a big surprise if she were considered the best player ever to pick up a raquet.

Keep in mind, she's already got four more Grand Slam titles than Martina Navratilova, five more than Roger Federer, and eight more than Pete Sampras and Rafael Nadal.

And even though she's now 34, Serena isn't done yet. She'll be looking to break Graf's record when the U.S. Open gets underway in August.
