Serena Williams handily won her 300th career victory at a grand slam to secure a place in the fourth round of Wimbledon. On Sunday, she advanced further by winning again.
After defeating Germany’s Annika Beck 6-3 6-0 on Saturday, Williams moved into second place in the all-time list—just six wins behind an Open era record of 306,reports Bleacher Report.
Williams was as cool as a cucumber when she heard the news.
Oh, was it? Cool. Oh, nice. I had no idea. That’s awesome, right? I think that’s a lot of matches. It’s a lot of wins,” Williams said.
“I thought it was good. I still want to get out to a little bit of a faster start but I was really focused and calm.
“Obviously I love having that Sunday off but I’m a little behind in my matches so I guess I had to play an extra day.”
