- Serena Williams has dismissed suggestions the pressure of trying to make history has been responsible for her failure to win a Grand Slam since last year's Wimbledon. Williams, who plays Angelique Kerber in Saturday's Wimbledon final, has been stranded on 21 grand slam titles, one short of Steffi Graf's record for the most in the Open Era, for the past 12 months, losing in the semi-finals of the US Open and the finals at the Australian and French Open. "My goal has never been 22. I don't talk about that anymore," she told reporters. "I love what I do. I work hard at what I do. I'm extremely passionate. That's just kind of something that keeps me going."
