Ahead of this month's US Open 2013, Serena Williams appears to be keen on winning more Grand Slam titles.

Williams has been the WTA's star player this season. She's unbeaten on clay, won 34 matches in a row earlier in the year, and remains well out in front at the top of the world rankings.

However, despite having won 94 per cent of her matches and holding a 2,695 point lead over world No. 2 Maria Sharapova in the rankings, she described her season so far as 'decent',

"Honestly, I would have preferred to do better in some tournaments," Williams said earlier this week.

"I need to do well in a tournament like Toronto to get ready for the last Grand Slam of the year and do really well there too."

Serena currently trails Steffi Graf by six slams in the all-time leaderboard. Though she claims that she's not focused on breaking records, she insists that she wants to achieve more.

"I don’t really think about the history," said the American.

"For me, I feel honoured that it’s even in the conversation. I feel really good physically. For me, the reason I started playing tennis wasn’t to be the best female tennis player ever or even to be in that conversation. It was just to be the best that Serena Williams could be, the best that I can be. That has been my only goal."

She added: "I just want to keep trying to get to the top of the mountain and if I’m there, I want to stay there. There are so many more tournaments I’d like to win."
