Serena clinches record, no final major tally in mind
Serena Williams clinches record
By Nick Mulvenney MELBOURNE, Jan 28 (REUTERS) Serena Williams said it was a "great feeling" to surpass Steffi Graf as the most prolific grand slam champion of the open era at the Australian Open today and was not prepared to put a number on the haul of titles she might end up with.
The 35-year-old, who won her first major at the US Open in 1999, drew level with Graf's tally of 22 at Wimbledon last year and edged ahead of the German with her 6-4 6-4 victory over her sister Venus on Rod Laver Arena today.
