She is also regarded as the best grass court player of her generation and she is widely considered as one of all-time greats of women’s tennis.
Her seven Grand Slam single titles tie her for twelfth on the all time list, and are more than any other active female player except for her younger sister Serena Williams. Her 22 overall Grand Slam titles consist of seven in singles, thirteen in women’s double, and two in mixed doubles. Her five Wimbledon singles titles tie her with two other women for eighth place on the all-time list.
