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 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.
