Tennis: Serena eyes spot in last 16

NEW YORK, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -3rd Sep,2016) - Serena Williams seems to be making history almost every time she steps on the tennis court as she speeds toward the second week of the US Open in search of a seventh title.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion takes on Sweden's Johanna Larsson in search of a place in the round of 16 on Saturday, and a 307th Grand Slam match win would lift her past Martina Navratilova for the most in the Open Era.

"Sometimes I don't even know that I'm hitting these milestones," Williams said. "But some of them I'm really proud of. This one's kind of cool." Williams, who can move past the Open Era record she shares with Steffi Graf if she goes all the way to a 23rd Grand Slam title in New York, said the major match-win mark was on her radar at Wimbledon.

"Obviously I'm excited about that," she said. "I would like to take one more step, several more steps."
