Serena Jameka Williams is the current World No. 2 tennis player. She has been ranked No. 1 by WTA on five separate occasions. Serena Williams has won 23 Grand Slam titles: 11 in women's singles, ten in women's doubles and two in mixed doubles. In addition, she has won two Olympic gold medals in women's doubles in 2000 and 2008. Serena Williams won more Grand Slam titles than any other active female player and has won more career prize money than any other female athlete in history. Williams reached the top ten on the WTA world rankings for the first time in 1999 when she won her first Grand Slam victory at the US Open at the age of 17. Between 2002 and 2003, Williams won five of the six Grand Slam events she entered, becoming the fifth woman in history to hold all four Grand Slam titles simultaneously. She became the World Number 1 for the first time in July 2002.
Williams had a knee tendon surgery in 2003 and this ended Serena Williams' domination. She returned back on the tour in 2004 and her results were noticeably less consistent than previously. She won her next Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2005, her first in 18 months. However she could play only 13 tounaments in the next two years as she stuggled with a string of injuries. Her standing in the world rankings suffered as a result as she was ranked World No. 140 in July 2006, leading to widespread speculation that she had passed her peak. However, Serena won another Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2007, despite being ranked World Number 81 at the time. Williams returned to the top ten later that year and has since competed in every Grand Slam event. She became the World No. 1 for the first time in five years in September 2008, lost the ranking to Dinara Safina in April 2009, but regained the title after a win at the China Open in October 2009.
Serena Williams is the younger sister Venus Williams, who was a World No. 1 WTA player. The sisters have played each other in 21 professional matches dating back to 1998, with Serena winning 11 matches played between them as of July 2009. Their meeting in the final of the 2001 US Open was the first Grand Slam final contested by two sisters in the open era. As of July 2009, they have met in eight Grand Slam finals, with Serena winning six of those. Between the 2002 French Open and the 2003 Australian Open, the sisters met in all four Grand Slam finals, the first time in the open era that the same two players had contested four consecutive Grand Slam finals.
