Serena says cannot be seen as greatest ever without most major wins

Manila: American tennis player Serena Williams, who recently entered the second week of the US Open tennis tournament, has said that unless she wins the most major championships, she cannot be considered the greatest of all time.

According to GMA News, the most dominant player of her era, America`s world number one will meet Spain`s 18th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old Williams has won 16 majors to trail Margaret Court (24), Steffi Graf (22), Helen Wills Moody (19), Chris Evert (18) and Martina Navratilova (18) on the all-time list, the report said.

Serena said that she went by the numbers and did not think she was the greatest because Graf had more majors than her.
