Serena Williams has insisted that she remains hungry for Grand Slam titles following her early exit from Wimbledon.

The 17-time major champion was dumped out of the tournament on Saturday with a three-set defeat to world number 24 Alize Cornet.

When asked if she was still looking to top Steffi Graf's Open-era record of 22 Grand Slam singles triumphs, Williams told reporters: "It's something I'm obviously going to keep going for. It's definitely something in my mind, it's pretty important.

"I think everyone in general plays the match of their lives against me. I just have to always, every time I step on the court, be 100 times better. If I'm not, then I'm in trouble."

Saturday's defeat was Williams's earliest loss at Wimbledon since 2005.
