Serena Williams Breaks Record For Most Grand Slam Match Victories

September 06, 2016

Serena Williams won her 308th match in Grand Slams at the US Open when she beat Yaroslava Shvedova 6-2, 6-3 on Monday to go into the quarterfinals.

Williams is now one Grand Slam win ahead of 35-year-old Roger Federer, who is currently out of the game recovering from a knee injury. She turns 35 herself on September 26, and has no intention of stopping.

"Now I don't really see when I'm going to stop because I'm just enjoying these moments out here, getting to break records that I didn't even know existed or I didn't even know was possible," Williams said after Monday's match.

"I think it's something that really talks about the length of my career," she added. "I've been playing for a really long time, but also, you know, given that consistency up there. That's something that I'm really proud of."

Of passing Federer in Grand Slam wins, Williams said it was "very significant."
