One just can’t put Serena Williams away from making or breaking any records. Although the Queen of Tennis failed to win her 24th Grand Slam title in 2020 too, she impressed fans with her exceptional gameplay. Despite facing an Achilles injury in the later part of the season, the 39-year-old gave some tough competition to the upcoming generation in the last decade.

 

 

Interestingly, Serena had the most number of wins against the top 10 WTA players in the last decade (2011-2020). She started the decade when she was in her early thirties and still managed to win most of her matches. What is even more applauding is the fact that Serena leads the list by a huge margin.

She won 73 games against the top 10 players which are 20 more than Petra Kvitova who had 53 wins. The next on the list is 2-time Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka with 52 wins against the top 10.
