Unsurprisingly Serena Williams was the headline act with blockbuster battles happening across the grounds at the 2022 US Open.
Serena’s career in pictures
With 73 singles titles (including 23 Grand Slams), 23 women’s doubles titles (including 14 Grand Slams), 4 Olympic gold medals and 319 weeks at the top of the WTA rankings, we take a look back at Serena Williams’ dazzling 27-year career in tennis.
She won this third (and final) Roland-Garros title after defeating Czech player Lucie Safarova in the 2015 final. During her last press conference at the US Open 2022, at the question: "What are you proudest about that you've achieved in your whole career?", Serena answered: "Roland-Garros 2015. That is definitely the one that I'm taking with beacause I almost died in this event. Somehow I won. So that was pretty awesome".
