My NEW Serena Williams Blog

Hello world,

This is my new Blog in honor of my FAVORITE Tennis Player, Serena Williams, the LAST person (male or female) to hold ALL Four Grand Slam Titles (French, Wimbledon, US Open and the Australian Open) at the same time. The victory saw Serena join such immortals of the game as the late Maureen Connolly, Margaret Court, Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova, the only other players who have won four in a row. Connolly, Court and Graf won calender year slams but Navratilova, like Serena, won four in a row over two years

The Serena Slam is the term coined for American tennis player Serena Williams on her achievement of being the reigning champion of all four Grand Slam tournaments, although she did not win them all in the same calendar year. However, a 1984 ruling by the International Tennis Federation declared a Grand Slam to be when a player was holding all four major titles at the time. Williams won the 2002 French Open, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the 2003 Australian Open.
