London, June 20 (ANI): 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.

She adds: "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."

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