NEW YORK (AP) Serena Williams stopped hiding from history and started making more of it.
Up until a couple of years ago, she practically plugged her ears at any mention of records or firsts. Now she says it out loud: Coming into the U.S. Open, her next goal is matching two tennis greats for the second-most major titles in the Open era with 18.
"Obviously just getting closer to tying with Chris (Evert) and Martina (Navratilova)," she said.
