Ailing knees, Father Time and even a resurgent Victoria Azarenka stand in the way of Serena Williams clinching her seventh Australian Open title and giving her one more shot at an achievement that would cap her storied career.Williams, already considered one of the all time greats, has 21 Grand Slam singles titles, four Olympic gold medals and more than $74 million in career earnings but the 34-year-old is no doubt aiming to become the greatest of them all.Victory at Flushing Meadows would have moved her into a tie with Graf on 22 Grand Slam titles, the most in the Open era, and two behind the all-time leader, Australia's Margaret Court.The 26-year-old is drawn to meet the third seed Garbine Muguruza in the fourth round, with the Spaniard tipped to contend after she made her first Grand Slam final last year, losing to Williams at Wimbledon.
