One just can’t put Serena Williams away from making or breaking any records. Although the Queen of Tennis failed to win her 24th Grand Slam title in 2020 too, she impressed fans with her exceptional gameplay. Despite facing an Achilles injury in the later part of the season, the 39-year-old gave some tough competition to the upcoming generation in the last decade.
Interestingly, Serena had the most number of wins against the top 10 WTA players in the last decade (2011-2020). She started the decade when she was in her early thirties and still managed to win most of her matches. What is even more applauding is the fact that Serena leads the list by a huge margin.
She won 73 games against the top 10 players which are 20 more than Petra Kvitova who had 53 wins. The next on the list is 2-time Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka with 52 wins against the top 10.
Williams also topped the list of players having the best win percentage in the decade. She completely dominated the list with a win percentage of 88.49% way ahead of the second-placed Maria Sharapova with 77.37%.
Although Serena hasn’t won a single Grand Slam title since her return in 2017, she won the most number of matches at Grand Slams.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner Williams won 158 matches in Grand Slams. Angelique Kerber, the second on the list is nowhere near to Williams on the list with 101 wins.
With this, the 39-year-old American topped the list of players with the best win percentage in Slams as well. She won 88.27% of her games again maintaining a 10% lead over the second-placed Sharapova.
The Queen will be now returning back to the court at the Australian Open 2021. Fans hope that the upcoming season will be a great one for her and expect her to lift her 24th Grand Slam title in Melbourne.
