Serena Williams: 'I have nothing to lose at US Open'

World number one Serena Williams insists that she has nothing to lose when she attempts to complete the calendar Grand Slam at the US Open later this year.

Serena Williams has insisted that she will not have "anything to lose" when she tries to complete the calendar Grand Slam at the US Open later this year.

The world number one now holds all four Grand Slam titles after winning Wimbledon yesterday, beating Spain's Garbine Muguruza in straight sets in the final.

The 33-year-old told BBC Sport: "I feel like if I can do the 'Serena Slam', I will be OK heading into the Grand Slam. Like I always say, there's 127 other people that don't want to see me win. Nothing personal, they just want to win.

"This gives me confidence that if I had this draw, I can do it again. I'll just do the best I can. I really don't feel like I have anything to lose. I've kind of solidified my place at number one. My goal is always to end the year at number one."

Williams is a six-time champion at Flushing Meadows, and has won the event for the last three years.
