Serena Williams is undoubtedly the most feared women’s tennis player on the tour. She has amassed countless accolades to her name in more than two decades now. It could just be a matter of time before she owns a 24th Grand Slam, too. Once that happens, she will easily become the GOAT on most fans’ lists.

A lot of the credit for Serena’s late-career success must go to her current coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. He has been coaching this generational player since 2012, and their relationship is only gaining strength. But is it strong enough for Serena to give away her trophies for her coach to keep?

How generous is the Queen of WTA?

In totality, Serena has won 73 singles titles in her career and 23 doubles titles. Now, this combination can soon touch 100 and that makes it too tough to keep track of these precious possessions.

So out of those many winnings, she has shared a few of the magnificent pieces with her deserving coach.

In a recent post, Patrick agreed on the possession and revealed, “Yes I do have several of Serena’s trophies at @MouratoglouAcad Serena has been very kind to offer me to keep some of those she has won since we are collaborating together.”

His academy is one of the most sought Tennis academies in the world today. Patrick shot to fame after taking the project with Serena and they’ve together seen a fair share of good and not-so-good days.

Serena Williams’ tale of untraceable trophies

In a recent episode of Architectural Digest, the 23-time Grand Slam champion gave a tour of her new home. The interior of her room is designed by her sister Venus Williams’ company, and the house even has a much-needed trophy room.

In the video, she expressed, “I don’t keep a lot of my Grand Slam trophies here. I do see an Australian Open trophy. Oh, wait, here’s a U.S. Open trophy! From 2002. Okay, that was a while ago. This looks like one …”

She then showed her French Open and Wimbledon trophies in a manner that made it evident how difficult it is for the star player to keep track of all of her trophies.

Now that is the level of success every WTA player must dream to achieve. An entire room dedicated to trophies, which eventually runs out of space! Now that is success!
