At the Auckland Classic, Williams won her first title since the 2017 Australian Open, breaking a three-year drought.
She became the oldest No. 1 in WTA history and equalled Steffi Graf’s record for most consecutive weeks atop the rankings. She became the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam singles trophy in the professional era. However, now Williams is itching to equal Margaret Court’s record 24 Grand Slam titles.
