WTA Rankings 5.20.2013: Serena Supreme Again, Wins Rome…Maintains #1

Serena Williams (click to enlarge)

I said before the Serena Williams vs Victoria Azarenka final at the 2013 Internazionali BNL d’Italia that win or lose, I hoped that Vika would make it a competitive match. In my opinion, it was less than that. Yes, Vika made some of the games competitive but ultimately Serena turned all of the important points in her favor. But more than that, in a 6-1 6-3 match, I never had the feeling either set was in question, even the second closer set. Serena grabbed hold of the match from the beginning and never looked like she would lose. She’s supreme. And there’s no Justine Henin or Lindsay Davenport in their prime walking through the door to challenge her. Unless Vika can raise her game or Petra Kvitova finally puts her immense talent together consistently, the Serena Express shows no sign of slowing down if she remains focused.
