Tennis 199 43 Serena Williams' Grand Slam wins 31902489 No. 17: 2013 US Open No.+17%3A+2013+US+Open Tennis

For the second straight year, Serena held off Azarenka in the final in Flushing Meadows. The wind-swept, three-set affair went 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-1 to the American. The title left her one shy of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert on the all-time list, in sixth place overall.

After an 11-year gap, Serena returned to the top in Paris, beating defending champion Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 in the final to win her second title at Roland Garros and first since 2002. The win was also Serena's 31st straight in a run of dominance that had some suggesting it was the best tennis of her career.

Playing one of the best finals of her career, Serena floated back and forth across the court in a relatively easy 6-4, 6-3 win over first-time finalist Vera Zvonareva. It was Serena's fourth Wimbledon title and vaulted her past Billie Jean King on the all-time Grand Slam title list.

Tennis 199 43 Serena Williams' Grand Slam wins 11429498 No. 12: 2010 Australian Open No.+12%3A+2010+Australian+Open Tennis

Serena and Justine Henin had combined to make 25 Grand Slam finals prior to the 2010 Australian Open, but amazingly, they had never faced each other until this one. Henin — who had recently come out of retirement — pushed Serena to a third set, but the American came through 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 for her fifth title in Melbourne.

Serena improved to 6-2 against her sister in Grand Slam finals with a 7-6 (3), 6-2 win over Venus. But Serena almost didn't even make it to this one — she survived a classic semifinal against Elena Dementieva in the previous match.

One of her best tournament showings, Serena was rarely challenged — except, of course, by Venus in the quarterfinals — and won the title without dropping a set. The No. 4 seed beat Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 in the final for her third title in New York.

Serena was at her heavy-hitting best in Melbourne, obliterating Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-2 in the final to end a two-year Slam drought. The win also got revenge for the 2004 Wimbledon final, which Serena lost to the up-and-coming Russian.

In probably their most competitive final, Serena again beat Venus for the title, this time in three sets. Serena won 7-6 (4), 3-6, 6-4 to capture her first title Down Under. The win also capped her "Serena Slam" — after this title, she was the current holder of all four major championships.

Serena waited out nine Grand Slams before returning to the winner's circle with this win in Paris, the longest drought in her career. The French Open crown — a 7-5, 6-3 win over her sister, Venus — is still her only title at the clay-court Slam.
