Will Serena Williams Equal the Grand Slam Record In US Open 2020?
Serena Williams will have the opportunity to tie the all-time record for total Grand Slam championships. Williams needs one major to tie Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record.
Former World Number one Serena Williams is unquestionable a legend of the sport as she has managed to win 23 Grand Slams in her 25-year career, At the same time she has just one short of Margaret Court’s record.
The 38-year-old has been chasing the unique 24th Grand Slam for more than three years. She won her last Grand Slam at the Australian Open 2017.

Nevertheless, Serena Williams has not managed to win a single Grand Slam event after qualifying the four finals at(2018-Wimbledon, US Open, and 2019-Wimbledon, US Open).
Although, We hope that Serena Williams will play on the upcoming hardcourt grand slam and win her special Grand Slam title.
