Serena Williams was awarded a giant pink cake in the honor of her 700th WTA win. The 33 year old World No 1 was facing 21 ranked German Sabine Lisicki.
The match looked like it was going in Sabine’s favor unill Serena came out triumphing in the latter stages, winning the game with the score of 7-6,1-6,6-3.
This tennis sensation who began her professional career in 1995 has won 19 grand slams including 5 Australlian Opens singles and 6 Wimbeldon singles and even a medal in the Olympics.
However she is not the one holding the highest number of wins as this milestone of a record is only almost half of Navratilova’s 1442 match wins.
She is set to face the World No 3. Simona Halep of Romania in her semi finals match.
Simona was the last person to defeat Serena on October last year before the World No 1 began her unfathomable winning streak to this day.
