Serena Williams says that she is now playing for history as she notched up a fifteenth Grand Slam title over the weekend
It has been a little over a year since Williams suffered terrible health problems that could have ended her career but fast forward and she has enjoyed a dominating summer.
Williams picked up single and doubles titles at Wimbledon and the Olympics before heading to New York for U.S. Open glory.
She saw off world number one Victoria Azarenka in the a tight three set final to notch up another Grand Slam win.
Her fifteenth Grand Slam sees her now just three titles behind Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert and it is a target that Williams believes she can achieve.
Speaking to USA Today Williams said: "I kinda just started playing for history. It's very motivating. Since I plan on playing for a long time, definitely plausible.
"I have to make sure I stay healthy, positive and calm. If I never win another Grand Slam then I've had a fabulous career and an historic career and I've done some major things so I'm really excited either way."
Williams is currently the world #4 behind Azarenka, Maria Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwanska.
