Williams Will Have Number 1 Ranking At Year-End

Following a 2013 season highlighted by winning nine titles, including two Grand Slam events, Serena Williams has secured the Women's Tennis Association’s Year-End No.1, presented by Dubai Duty Free, for the third time in her illustrious career, having also achieved the honor in 2002 and 2009.

Williams Denied A New Service Speed Record

It is a strangely mixed day for the Williams sisters.

While Serena received the good news that without hitting a ball she had done enough to secure the year ending WTA world no.1 ranking for the third time in her career, Venus had to accept the double disappointment of third set tiebreak defeat Petra Kvitova in Toray Pan Pacific semi-final in Tokyo and being told the 129.9 mph serve she hit 24 hours earlier was not being accepted.
