She made her debut at just 16-years-old in the 1099 Australian Open and she is currently ranked number one in the WTA women’s rankings. After winning Wimbledon, Serena is now the winner of 22 Grand Slam titles, which means she is now equal to Steffi Graf.
To celebrate her epic tennis career, which also includes four Olympic gold medals and $80 million in prize money, here are 22 things you might not know about the tennis legend.

2. When In Rome…
Serena’s favourite city to visit is Rome. Seeing as it’s the ideal destination for short breaks, we can imagine it’s the perfect getaway as she can’t take too much time off. She has world titles to defend!
