Serena Williams still eyes Grand Slam sweep
(Associated Press) - December 15, 2015 - 11:57pm

NEW YORK — Serena Williams says completing a Grand Slam is a goal she'd like to accomplish. For now, her focus is on winning another major tournament, not four in a row.

Williams was two victories away from sweeping all four in the same year when she was stunned by Roberta Vinci in the US Open semifinals in September. Her dominant season earned her Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year honors, and she was feted Tuesday night at a banquet in Manhattan.

Asked if the Grand Slam is a goal in 2016, Williams said: "It is, obviously; I've never done it. We'll see. I'm not putting any pressure on it."

She notes that she's won the French Open "only" three times, so even getting halfway there again is "going to be a little difficult to do."
