After winning her 24th consecutive match by defeating Victoria Azarenka in the Rome final, Serena Williams says she isn’t concerned that she’ll freeze up at Roland Garros, where she lost in the first round last year. Williams has won the just French Open once, in 2002. She did tell reporters that winning another Roland Garros title is her biggest challenge.

“Maybe, but I don’t feel any pressure, but in the past I have and I have always said, I have won every Grand Slam and perhaps only once but I don’t feel the pressure,” said Williams.

The 24-match run is the longest winning streak of Williams’ career.
