Twenty-three-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams is one of the oldest players on Tour. However, age is just a number in her case as she still continues to be on top of her game. She began her career as a teenager and after entering another chapter in life, that of motherhood, she still gives players a run for their money.

Recently, Serena Williams spoke about the trophies she’s won during her career. Interestingly, the huge number of trophies is not in one particular place. She revealed that few of her trophies are distributed between her father and coach. Although, she feels the need to make a room to store them.

While speaking to the multi-Grand Slam winner, she said, “I was thinking of having a trophy room but a sheath shed sounds way better. My coach actually still has a lot of them and I have a few of them and my dad has one or two of a few of them. So yeah there are different places I keep them. It’s never in one place that’s for sure.”

Williams finds all her Grand Slam titles equally important, and she finds it unfair to choose a particular one. Nonetheless, she did state once she’s finished playing she would be able to choose one.

The 39-year-old player added, “Honestly, all the Grand Slam titles are super special. I can’t pick out just one. I’ve always felt that when I hang up my racquet and finish I will be able to say okay this one means more to me than all the rest. I haven’t really thought about all of that because I’m in the folds of everything and still trying to do what I do.”
