Serena Williams is widely considered as the GOAT (the Greatest of All Time) even if she is 1 slam shy from Margaret Court’s record. The American legend has 23 majors under her belt while the Australian ends her career with 24 (highest single titles in history).
However, tennis great Boris Becker agrees that even if Serena hasn’t matched (yet) Margaret’s record, she has to be considered as the best.
During a recent interview with laureus.com, Becker commented:
“Can Serena equal Margaret Court? She is past 30 and she’s become a proud mother. I’m sure she would love to play the US Open this year. They call her the Greatest of all Time on the women’s circuit, and she certainly deserves the title.
Andreescu & C. will not sleep
After assessing the possibility of Serena conquering her 24th slam, Boris stressed the fact that the new generation will be there to try to oppose Serena’s quest for more greatness.
