We at wtatennis.com thought it would be fun to play word association with Williams about the other seven players in the WTA's 700 Wins Club - here's what she said about each and every one of them:
(1442 career match wins)
(1309 career match wins)
(902 career match wins)
(839 career match wins)
(759 career match wins)
Serena: "Dang, she was tough. One of those 700 wins came against me! Actually more than one."
(753 career match wins)
Serena: "Role model. I think she's a really good role model."
(739 career match wins)
Serena: "Gosh, these people won a lot. Conchita also had one against me!"
** Note: Martínez never actually beat Serena (0-5).
