Fifteen-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams made history once more by becoming the oldest woman to ever hold the world number one ranking after winning her quarterfinal match at the Qatar Total Open 2013 tournament. Williams is at 31 years, 4 months, 24 days in reclaiming the top spot.
This will be Williams’ sixth return at the world number one.
“I never thought I would be here again,” Williams said.
“I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to get back to No.1. It has been a long road back and it’s a great feeling. It has been a lot of hard work but I don’t want to stop here,” she added.
Williams had a fantastic 2012 season which saw her win her 14th and 15th Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon and the US Open. She also won the Olympic gold medals in singles and doubles in London plus the year-end TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships in Istanbul. She accumulated a 58-4 win loss record for the season.Tennisguru.net in partnership with bet365 offer over 40,000 live streamed events per year.
