World No. 1 Serena Williams feels the pressure of chasing history at the U.S. Open, but she accepts the intensity as the price for dominating a generation of women's tennis.Williams, who captured her first Grand Slam title at the 1999 U.S. Open at age 17, is a huge favorite as she tries to complete the first calendar-year Grand Slam since Steffi Graf in 1988 by winning her 22nd career major title starting Monday on the New York hard courts.Williams has won six Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Australian Open titles and three French Open crowns to stand one shy of Steffi Graf's Open Era (since 1968) record of 22 Grand Slam singles trophies and only three shy of Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 .Not since Aussie Samantha Stosur beat Williams in the 2011 final has Williams lost at the U.S. Open.
