Margaret Court News
Serena has a total of 23 Grand Slam singles titles--which is the most by any player in the Open Era and the second-most overall behind Margaret Court. Meanwhile, Serena also holds the record of most Grand Slam titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined among the active tennis players. If Serena manages to clinch the 2020 French Open title, she will become the second oldest player to seal a Grand Slam after Molla Mallory --who won 1926 US Open trophy at the age of 42.
Despite fitness concerns and a title drought that stretches back to the 2017 Australian Open, bookmakers are backing Williams to match Margaret Court`s record haul and the New York crowds, as always, will be in her corner when play gets underway on Monday at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
