Serena Breaks Tennis Wins Record

Serena Breaks Tennis Wins Record

Serena Williams swept aside Johanna Larsson in round three of the US Open Saturday with an impressive display of powerful and aggressive tennis. World No.1 Williams took the match on the Arthur Ashe court 6-2 6-1 in just 59 minutes and in the process marked her 307th victory in a grandslam tournament, more than any other woman in the history of the sport.

Feeling like her favorite female super heroes, Serena Williams went on to create a record-breaking victory and declared that she's still not in top form.

"I don't feel like Serena yet," she said. "Hopefully she'll come around the second week."

That's a scary thought to the first three opponents she pummeled at the Open without dropping a set, none finished faster than the 60 minutes it took Saturday to beat Johanna Larsson, 6-2, 6-1.

It represented Williams' 307th victory in a Grand Slam match, eclipsing Martina Navratilova for the all-time female record.

She is also now tied with Roger Federer.
