    Johannesburg, Mar 26 (ANI): World number three Simona Halep has said that it is hard to think of being the world number one as long as American tennis ace Serena Williams is at the top of the rankings, but believes that she has that confidence to win more titles and eventually bag a Grand Slam. The win was the third of the year for the 23-year-old following victories at Shenzhen and Dubai and while she is firmly fixed as number three, behind Williams and Maria Sharapova, she says getting to top spot may be a step too far, Sport24 reported. The Williams sisters, who live in nearby Palm Beach Garden, have dominated the Miami Open and have won the event 10 times, with Serena lifting the title on seven occasions and Venus on three. Still, Halep, who has never ventured past the third round in Miami, doesn't believe that Williams is unbeatable.
