Serena Williams has been piling on a lot of numbers lately - she's won the last four Grand Slams in a row, her second Serena Slam, and after Wimbledon she passed $70 million in career earnings (her $72.7M is more than twice as much career prize money as second-most Maria Sharapova's $35.8M).

And it doesn't stop there - this week, she crosses yet another milestone, a pretty historic one too.

Williams has become the fourth player in WTA history to hit 250 weeks at World No.1.

The 21-time Grand Slam champion is just 10 weeks away from Chris Evert's career total of 260 weeks:

Even more impressive is Williams has now spent more time at No.1 over the last two and a half years than she had her entire career before that. She's now in her 127th straight week at No.1 since getting back there on February 18, 2013 - she spent a total of 123 weeks there in all her career before that.

"I feel better now," she said. "I do have some aches and pains, but overall physically I feel like I'm better. I feel like I'm more fit. I feel like I can do more than I did 10, 12, or however many years ago.

"I keep reinventing myself in terms of working out, in terms of my game. And it's been working."
