Serena Williams will be remembered as possibly the best women's tennis player ever but she has revealed one missed opportunity will haunt her in retirement: not passing Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam titles.

The former world No.1 announced her time in the game will be up after the upcoming US Open in an article for Vogue magazine that also saw her come clean on missing the Australian legend's mark by just one grand slam victory.

'There are people who say I'm not the GOAT because I didn't pass Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam titles, which she achieved before the ''open era'' that began in 1968,' she wrote. 

'I'd be lying if I said I didn't want that record. Obviously I do. But day to day, I'm really not thinking about her. If I'm in a grand slam final, then yes, I am thinking about that record. Maybe I thought about it too much, and that didn't help.
