When you hear the name Serena Williams, you immediately know exactly who she is and what she looks like. She has been called the woman with the most powerful serve and anyone who has stood against or opposite her sure do agree. She is the second seated player and one of only two women who has ever had 21 Grand Slam titles. We knew Serena Williams alongside older sibling, Venus when the pair played together at first. In 1999, Serena won a singles title when she bet the number one seated Martina Hinges at the tender age of 17. In 2001, however she lost her title to Sister Venus. She came back with force though when she won four consecutive titles from 2002 through 2003 when she became known as the Serena Slam. The four Grand Slam Titles she held at the same time was the 2002 Wimbledon, 2002 French Open, 2002 U.S. Open, and the 2003 Australian Open. The only other women who could ever achieved this mean feat includes Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, Margaret Court, and Maureen Connolly.
