Serena Williams picked up right where she left off in 2012 by kicking off 2013 with a smooth road to another title.
She won Brisbane without dropping a set, her first time capturing one of the pre-Australian Open events, and she has now won 52 of her last 54 matches.
And that’s just a couple of the statistics she has achieved or has a chance to achieve.
She now has 47 WTA titles to her name, the most active among players, and is inching closer to Monica Seles for ninth-most of the Open Era:
1. Martina Navratilova: 167
2. Chris Evert: 154
3. Steffi Graf: 107
4. Margaret Court: 92
5. Evonne Goolagong Cawley: 68
6. Billie Jean King: 67
7. Virginia Wade: 55
