Ragnarok for Tennis History this Weekend?

My son is interested in the Avengers in general and Thor in particular.  The rewriting of tennis history that could happen this weekend is massive. Serena Williams can tie Margaret Court for the most singles majors ever (24) while also collecting an 8th Wimbledon crown.  While Serena’s 23 majors all come in the Open Era,…
