The 39-year-old has registered some memorable performances in her career.

Serena Williams is one of the biggest names in tennis today. The winner of 23 Grand Slam titles in the women's singles competition is the most decorated trophy holder in the game.

Even the Big Three in tennis today don't have the amount of Grand Slam trophies in their cabinet as Serena has. Let us take a look at some of the biggest wins of William's singles career:

5. Serena Williams vs Martina Hingis ( 1999 US Open final)

Serena Williams won her first Grand Slam title in her home country defeating the first seed Martina Hingis. The 7th seeded American defeated her Swiss opponent in straight sets to win her first coveted Grand Slam title. She took the first set quite easily but the second set went to a tiebreak.

The 17-year-old played all-court attacking tennis to seal the victory in only her second year as a pro. The match ended with a scoreline of 6-3, 7-6 and it made Serena the first African-American woman to win a Grand Slam tournament in the Open Era.

4. Serena Williams vs Lindsay Davenport ( 2005 Australian Open final)

She clashed against her compatriot Lindsay Davenport in the finals of the 2005 Australian Open. Serena had to beat Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova in a tough match to make her way to the finals.

Davenport took the first set in convincing fashion to take an early lead. But it was all Serena Williams from then on. The 2003 Australian Open winner came back strongly to equal the sets at 2-2 playing some quality tennis. In the final set however she was merciless as she did not even allow Davenport to win a single point.

Williams cruised to victory and the match ended with a scoreline of 2-6, 6-3, 6-0. This victory earned her second Australian Open title and 7th Grand Slam title overall.

3. Serena Williams vs Venus Williams ( 2003 Wimbledon final)

Defending champion Serena Williams faced off against her older sister Venus in the 2003 Wimbledon finals. This was a rematch from last year's finals which Serena had won. Although this time the match started on a slightly different note for the champion.

The older Williams claimed the first set unlike last year where Serena had a straight set victory. But Serena bounced back like she has done multiple times in her career. She won the next two sets claiming the second Wimbledon title of her career.

2. Serena Williams vs Victoria Azarenka ( 2012 US Open final)

The Arthur Ashe Court at Flushing Meadows saw a stunning display of tennis from both players. Serena came back from the verge of a certain defeat as Azarenka was serving for the match at one point of time. Serena was trailing 5-3 to the Belarusian.

Williams was literally serving to stay in the match as the game reached the two hour mark. Serena was dominant in the first half of the game taking the first set convincingly. But Azarenka clinched the second to keep herself in the game. The third set however was a complete dogfight between both players.

The match saw some lingering rallies and some brilliant winners from both ends. The majority of them hit perfectly from the back of the court. As the match ended after a gruesome 2 hours and 18 minutes it had a scoreline of 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 in Willams favour.

5. Serena Williams vs Venus Williams (2003 Australian Open)

Serena Williams had won all the major Grand Slams except for the Australian Open when she competed in the 2003 Australian Open finals. So this was the missing trophy in her embellished cabinet. And the only thing that stood in her way was her elder sister Venus.

She had won the French Open, US Open, Australian Open last year as well and all of those victories came against Venus. So this was another Sister Slam at a Grand Slam final. The match ended as Venus made four straight errors in the final game making Serena Williams a Career Grand Slam winner.

Speaking of the match and playing against her elder sister Serena got emotional. She said, "I never get choked up, but I'm really emotional right now". As the younger Williams lifted the trophy at the Rod Laver arena the match read the scoreline of 7-6, 3-6, 6-4.
