Serena Williams handily won her 300th career victory at a grand-slam event to secure a place in the fourth round of Wimbledon. On Sunday she advanced further by winning again.
After defeating Germany’s Annika Beck 6-3 6-0 on Saturday, Williams moved into second place in the all-time list—just six wins behind an Open-era record of 306, reports Bleacher Report.
Williams was as cool as a cucumber when she heard the news.
“Oh, was it? Cool. Oh, nice. I had no idea. That’s awesome, right? I think that’s a lot of matches. It’s a lot of wins,” Williams said.
“I thought it was good. I still want to get out to a little bit of a faster start, but I was really focused and calm,” she added. “Obviously I love having that Sunday off, but I’m a little behind in my matches, so I guess I had to play an extra day.”
On that “extra day,” today, Williams neatly beat Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova, 7-5, 6-0.
The world No. 1 is vying for her seventh Wimbledon triumph.
