Serena Williams, Tennis' Top Cat

Without question I can honestly say that #1 ranked tennis champion Serena Williams is my athletic prototype of a perfect woman.  Her recent Bank of the West victory over #8 Angelique Kerber has proven yet again just how strong and resilient Serena is at 32 years old.

As a fan of competitive sports I give honor and recognition to this phenomenal tennis champion who continues to grace us with her unmatched athleticism.  It could be some time before we see a female athlete dominate with such beauty, grace and power as Serena has.  You Go Girl!

Top Cat! 
The most effectual Top Cat! 
Who's intellectual close friends get to call her T.C. 
Providing it's with dignity. 

Top Cat! 
The indisputable leader of the gang. 
She's the boss, She's a pip, She's the championship. 
She's the most tip top, 
Top Cat. 

Yes She's a chief, She's a king, 
But above everything, 
She's the most tip top, 

Williams holds the most Major singles, doubles, and mixed doubles titles combined amongst active players, male or female. Her record of 32 Major titles puts her seventh on the all-time list: 17 in singles, 13 in women's doubles, and 2 in mixed doubles. She is the most recent player, male or female, to have held all four Grand Slam singles titles simultaneously ('02–'03), and only the fifth woman ever to do so. She is also the most recent player together with her sister Venus to have held all four Grand Slam women's doubles titles simultaneously ('09–'10). Her total of 17 Grand Slam singles titles is sixth on the all-time list,[6] and fourth in the Open Era, behind Steffi Graf (22 titles) and Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova (18 titles each).[6] She has won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles with her sister Venus Williams and the pair are unbeaten in Grand Slam finals.[7]Serena Williams is also a four-time winner of the WTA Tour Championships.[8]Williams is only one of five tennis players all-time to win a multiple slam set in two disciplines, matching Margaret CourtRoy Emerson, Martina Navratilova andFrank Sedgman. The arrival of Venus and Serena Williams has been credited with launching a new era of power and athleticism in women's tennis.[9][10][11][12]

Williams has won four Olympic gold medals, one in women's singles and three in women's doubles, an all-time record shared with her sister Venus.[13][14]
