Serena Williams allowed herself a moment to savor a third straight U.S. Open win Sunday, but only a moment. Just three hours after securing her 18th grand slam title with a 6-3 6-3 win over Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki, the world No. 1 soaked up the accolades and applause and then admitted that she was already thinking about number 19 and third spot on the all-time list, currently held by Helen Wills Moody.Williams will celebrate her 33rd birthday later this month and clearly has plans to celebrate many more grand slam titles as she climbs further and further up the rankings.Until Sunday it did not look as if Williams would add to her grand slam haul this season.This marks a record 15th straight year Williams has won at least one singles or doubles grand slam title and with her win Sunday she became the second woman in the Open Era to win three consecutive U.S. Open titles.
