18 time, Grand Slam winner, Martina Navratilova in a recently given interview has claimed that if anyone is to cross Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slams, she would most likely be Serena Williams. "Serena is amazing, and she will get to 20 slams for sure," Navratilova said.
"She put her career into another gear three years ago after that loss to Virginie Razzano at the French Open. She really focused herself on the sport.” "She realised that her time was running out and that if she wanted to make her mark on the sport she had better get going, and she has barely lost any matches since then." Going into the French Open, Serena has only been beaten twice this year and with the Australian Open title run in January – she crossed Navratilova’s mark of 18 grand slams.
Further on in the interview, Navratilova showed full support for Serena and believed that the new generation of players has not yet caught up the American and the World No 1 has a great chance of getting well past the 20 grand slam mark.
"She has really dominated the sport in the last three years," Navratilova said. "What is impressive to me is that she's doing it at this age.”
