SERENA RETAINS WTA CROWN

0

ISTANBUL: Serena Williams, 32, successfully defended her WTA Championships title, beating Li Na, 2-6, 6-3, 6-0, to finish 2013 with a 78th victory against just four losses, and 11th title of the year. Williams finished the campaign with prize money of $12,385,572, shattering the all-time women’s record set last year by Victoria Azarenka, who won $7,923,920. It’s also the third-highest single season prize money total in tennis history, men’s and women’s—only Novak Djokovic’s 2011 and 2012 totals are higher. She is the fourth player ever to win four or more titles at the season-ending event and the oldest champion.
