Serena Williams Not Thinking About 22 Grand Slams Yet

Updated: 08 September 2014 23:28 IST

With 18 Grand Slam titles, Serena Williams' tally is now on par with that of Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. Four more could take her level with Steffi Graf's Open-era record of 22.

Serena Williams isn't sure if she's willing or able to reach 22 Grand Slam titles. ('Serena Better Than Graf')

Still, she knows her next goal is 19 after she won her 18th on Sunday at the US Open to match Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. And should she get to 19, she figures she'll then want 20.

If she keeps playing the way she did in Flushing Meadows, maybe Steffi Graf's Open-era record of 22 will start to sound realistic.

It was an unusual scene after a major sports event late Sunday night: Williams and the player she defeated in the final, Caroline Wozniacki, were celebrating together.

Wozniacki took over her good friend Williams' phone and was posting photos to Instagram with singer Joe Jonas and model Gigi Hadid.
