Serena Williams can break Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam singles despite being five short at an age when most players have retired, according to Martina Navratilova.
American world No.1 Williams has bagged as many as 19 singles Slams, the most recent coming at this year’s Australian Open.
Logic suggests that, at 33, time is running out but Navratilova, who won 18 singles majors, believes the way Williams plays is key to her chances of reaching the milestone.“It’s possible, given the way she plays,“ Navratilova is reported to have said.“It’s fast tennis. She doesn’t have to grind it out: big serves, big returns. The trick for players (playing against her) is to get into the point with her.But if anyone can do it, it will be her, with her technique and her physique and her mental ability and drive,”
Navratilova, who recently ended her coaching role with Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska, said Williams had flourished since joining up with Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou three years ago, winning six of the last 11 grand slams since.
“She seems to believe in herself more,“ Navratilova said.“The biggest difference I see from the outside is her steadiness “She allowed herself to evolve with his help. She’s really trusted him to make the changes or adjustments.“
