AUDEMARS PIGUET AMBASSADOR SERENA WILLIAMS SECURES RECORD 23RD MAJOR VICTORYJueves, 02 de Febrero de 2017 11:30 AM
Serena Williams surpassed Steffi Graff’s record of 22 Grand Slams with a Millenary on the wrist.
Melbourne, Monday 30th January 2017 – Serena Williams perfectly embodies Audemars Piguet’s brand philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them.” The American tennis player won her 23rd Grand Slam in Australia on Saturday January 28th, defeating her sister Venus in 2 sets. She broke her tie with Steffi Graf for the open-era record whilst playing with a rose gold Millenary on the wrist during the Australian fortnight.
Her achievement is remarkable given the longevity of her dominance. She conquered her first Grand Slam in New York in September 1999. Down under, she has now won 7 titles: in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2015 and last Saturday in 2017. With her latest title, Serena Williams returns to the top of the women's game as world Number One.
To celebrate Serena’s achievements, Audemars Piguet filmed the 35-year old tennis champion in a stunning black and white setting while reciting the famous poem from Rudyard Kipling “If”, with a slight twist at the end.
