Serena Williams added one more historic stat to her lengthy resume on Monday at the US Open. She won her 308th match against Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan at the tournament.

34-year-old Williams is the only tennis player in history to have accomplished the feat. She passed fellow tennis veteran Roger Federer, who has won 307 matches.

Williams will move on the quarterfinals.
After the match, the no-1 seeded Williams said she's not planning on retiring in the forseeable future.

"I think it's very significant actually. I definitely never thought I would be playing still. Now I don't really see when I'm going to stop.

"I'm just enjoying these moments out here, getting to break records that I didn't even know existed or I didn't even know was possible.''

She's vying for her 23rd Grand Slam win which would help her surpass Steffi Graf, with whom she's currently tied, in the number of major tournaments won to secure the all-time record.
