With a staggering lead of over 5000 ranking points, was it ever going to be in doubt that Serena Williams would pick up the WTA Player of the Year Award in 2013?

She has the fondest memory of her French Open win, where she dominated on the dirt in 2013:

 "Well, obviously the French Open was probably the thing that stands out most," she said. "I really wanted to win that for a number of years now, so that was definitely something exciting. And also being undefeated on clay was pretty exciting too. So my results on clay this year definitely stand out." 

But the 32-year-old is looking ahead to 2014, and is not too old to stop learning, and is keen to regain a foot-hold in more ways than one at the upcoming 2014 Australian Open, a title she last claimed in 2010).

 "I want to learn from my mistakes so I don't repeat them. There will be 127 other players there who have the same thoughts as I have. I hope to be the one standing up at the end, and it's for sure my next goal, but seeing as I didn't do as well as I wanted to there the past couple of years, my goal this time is just to go a year in Australia without twisting an ankle. That's all I'm going to start with." 

Williams goes into 2014 with her same formidable attitude, and the rest of the tour should take heed of her fighting words, as she explained she still felt she could improve:

 "I have some areas where I can do a lot better for next year and I look forward to it," she said. “There's definitely a lot of things I can add to my game, a multitude of things." 

Williams’ 2013, by the numbers
  • 11 titles (just one short of Martina Hingis’ 12 in 1997)
  • 78 match wins (the most since Kim Clijsters won an outstanding 90 in 2003)
  • $12,385,572 in prize money (smashing Victoria Azarenka’s 2012 record of $7,923,920).
  • Williams hit the World No. 1 spot in February and is the oldest World No. 1 in WTA history
