But age hasn’t slowed her down so far. And if she stays healthy, Williams could soon match Navratilova’s total of 18 Grand Slam titles as well. Or why not the 22 that Steffi Graf won?

Williams isn’t setting any targets, though.

“I just think, the next one. If that doesn’t work out, the next one,” Williams said. “Even when I started I never had a number in mind. I remember when I reached eight, I was like `Oh my god, I have eight Grand Slams, how did this happen?’ And now I have 14, which is unbelievable. I’m happy that I’m no longer saying 13.”

So after all this, what else does she want to win?

“Are you kidding?” she said. “The U.S. Open, the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon 2013.”

If she stays healthy, it all looks within reach.
