The game of tennis has witnessed a number of legendary players to date, across genders.

Among females, one of the GOATs who continues to weave her magic is Serena Williams.

Here we look at some unbreakable records held by her.

Serena has been the world number one player for a total of 319 weeks only behind Steffi Graf (377) and Martina Navratilova (332).

Interestingly, she spent a record 186 consecutive weeks as numero uno.

She shares this accolade with Graf and no other woman is even close to breaking it.

Further, in this decade (2010s), she has been the number one for 236 weeks.

Legend

Only player to win Grand Slam in three different decades

Serena's first Grand Slam win came in 1999, when she won the US Open.

Ever since the WTA rankings were introduced in 1975, 27 players have been ranked number one.

Interestingly, Serena holds another unbreakable record here. She has beaten 22 of them.

Four of them retired even before her career began, while the only number one ranked player she has not defeated is Naomi Osaka of Japan.

Hard to imagine anyone replicating this.

Performance

Serena has won a total of 23 Grand Slams.

However, one of the interesting aspects of her title victories is that she has more than 60 wins in all four Slams.

Australia Open: 85-11, French Open: 65-13, Wimbledon: 92-11 (excluding 2019) and US Open: 95-12.

While she is the only woman to do so, to date, no one is even close to this feat.

The last, but the obvious one.

As we mentioned earlier, she is just one short of equaling Margaret Court to script the joint-most Grand Slam title wins.

However, she has already made the record in the Open Era, winning 23 of them.

Among the current players, her sister Venus Williams is next with only seven titles.
