Serena Williams has set a new record for the most Grand Slams won in the Open Era with her 23rd Grand Slam victory. She set the record when she beat her sister, Venus Williams. She finally set the record, after not winning a Grand Slam since the 2016 Wimbledon victory over Angelique Kerber. Luckily for Williams, this time around she didn’t have to play Kerber this year as Kerber was the 1 seed and was defeated in the Round of 16. Serena’s road to the finals as she won every match in two sets. Her hardest challenge was probably in the finals when she beat Venus Williams 6-4, 6-4. So is Serena Williams now the all-time GOAT? I think so-or at least for tennis.  Comment what you think.
