Serena Williams Has Dominated Tennis Scene Like Tiger Dominated Golf

United States’ tennis star, #1 seeded Serena Williams, will be looking to win her sixth Wimbledon title on Saturday against 21-year-old Garbine Muguruza after defeating #4 Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-4. serena

Going back to 2004, Williams has beaten Sharapova 17 times in a row. Williams will be appearing in her 25th Grand Slam final and could win her second “Serena Slam,” which is winning four Grand Slams in a row. The first “Serena Slam” of her career occurred in 2003 after winning the Australian Open.

Williams’ first Grand Slam title of her career came in 1999 after defeating Martina Hingis to win the U.S. Open. However, one could say Williams has been the most dominant female tennis player since 2002 as she has won 19 more Grand Slam titles. Her total of 20 Grand Slam singles titles is third on the all-time list behind Steffi Graf with 22 titles and Margaret Court with 24 titles.

In addition, Williams has won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles with her sister Venus and they have never lost in a  Grand Slam final.  Nine of those Grand Slam doubles titles have come since 2002.  Williams has won the WTA Tour Championships five times including each of the last three years.

Williams is the oldest female tennis player ever to be ranked number one. Like the Tiger Woods of the past who dominated his competition, Williams has done the same in the female tennis world. I believe she is the most dominant female tennis player of the modern era whose serve is downright filthy. Williams will defeat Garbine Muguruza to earn her 21st Grand Slam title and second “Serena Slam.” By the end of her career, I see Williams with 27 Grand Slam titles. She is an absolute joy to watch and will go down as the most powerful and greatest female tennis player of all-time.
And that’s as I see it!
