After winning a record sixth title in Miami, 15-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams says she is pleased to established an all-time mark, as it’s been difficult to catch the legends. Williams is sixth on the list of major singles titles winners behind Margaret Court (24), Steffi Graf (22), Helen Wills (19), Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert (18).

“I finally have some record,” she told reporters. “Like it's really cool. I can't seem to catch up with Margaret Court or Steffi or anything. I'm really happy to have something going right now, so it's exciting.”
