Serena Williams admits to having a temper on court

sports Updated: Jun 20, 2010 16:24 IST

Defending Wimbledon champion Serena Williams says she relishes getting angry on court - and has vowed to never curb her fiery temperament.

"I've always been a perfectionist and had a little temper and that's never going to change. That's exciting. That makes people want to watch, it's cool," News of The World quoted Serena as saying.

"You can't change who you are. When I demolish a racket I like to see how many cracks there are - if there is one crack it's no good. If I need to destroy the racket I've got to go all the way. Sometimes there are three different cracks -that's a really good one,'' she added.

Current world No 1 Serena is hoping to net her fourth Wimbledon title and a 13th Grand Slam.

Yet the real target is to better Tiger Woods' tally of 14 majors before the year is out.

She added: "I always wanted to catch up with him but I couldn't remember how many Grand Slams I had so I asked on Twitter. They told me 12. Now I know."

"I would love to have five or six Wimbledons but I'll just do the best I can. I won't get too down if it doesn't happen. I had chances to get more but I screwed them up - it's my own fault."
