Serena Williams still hungry for Grand Slam titles

Serena Williams insists that she remains eager to win more Grand Slam titles following her early exit from Wimbledon.

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.
