LONDON — It’s hard to blame Serena Williams for having some trouble keeping track of all of her many titles at the All England Club.
“I don’t necessarily have to win another Wimbledon in my career,” she said Friday, making a point about not having anything left to prove, “(because) I won — was it six times?”
Um, no, it’s seven. And the way things are looking, that count could rise to No. 8 in a little more than a week. Not only is Williams playing like her most capable self, smacking 13 aces while beating Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2) for a third consecutive straight-sets victory, but also the other proven contenders keep losing.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Williams said.
