SERENA WILLIAMS

Seeded: 1

Age: 32

Country: United States

2014 Match Record: 24-4

2014 Singles Titles: 3

Career Singles Titles: 60

Major Titles: 17 - Wimbledon (‘02, ‘03, ‘09, ‘10, ‘12), U.S. Open (‘99, ‘02, ‘08, ‘12, ‘13), Australian Open (‘03, ‘05, ‘07, ‘09, ‘10), French Open (‘02, ‘13)

Last 5 Wimbledons: ‘13-Lost in 4th Round, ‘12-Won Championship, ‘11-4th, ‘10-W, ‘09-W

Topspin: Coming off two early-for-her Grand Slam exits - fourth round at Australian Open, second round at French Open. The last time she failed to get past the quarterfinals at either of those tournaments was 2012, when she went on to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. … If Williams wins four matches this year, she will equal seven-time champion Steffi Graf with 74 victories at Wimbledon, fourth-most in the Open era, behind Martina Navratilova (120), Chris Evert (96), Billie Jean King (95). … Winning 81.2 percent of her service games this season, by far the best on tour.
