After winning the 2015 French Open, Serena won every single slam thrice, but now, she has the opportunity to win it four times. Achieving this would show her incredible ability on all surfaces. It is definitely important to her, but it is not as important as – the Grand Slam record.

The American star is just one Slam away from equaling this record but it has sadly eluded her over the last few years. She wants to finally do it this year, and we can expect her to fight tooth and nail for it.
