Serena Williams made Grand Slam history over the weekend at the U.S. Open. With her 308th win, Williams became the winningest man or woman at the U.S. Open.
Williams collected Grand Slam win No. 308 on Sunday after defeating Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova in the fourth round of the U.S. Open. The seeded No. 1 player crushed Shvedova 6-2, 6-3 in a little over an hour.
This win pushed Williams past Roger Federer, who previously held the title with 307 major match victories.
As Williams pushes through the tournament, she’s steps closer to winning her 7th Open title and her 23rd Grand Slam singles title.
If she wins the New York tournament, the tennis star will surpass Chris Evert for the most U.S. Open titles and Steffi Graf for the most championships since the introduction of the Open era in 1968, when the Grand Slam tournaments agreed to permit professional players to compete with amateurs.
