Serena Becomes Oldest Woman To Reach #1

Serena Williams beat Petra Kvitova in a tough 3-set match at the Qatar Tennis Open quarterfinals to reclaim the World #1 ranking on the WTA Tour. By doing so, Williams will become the oldest woman to be ranked #1 at age 31, 4 months and 24 days. Previously Chris Evert was #1 at 30 years, 11 months and 3 days way back on November 24, 1985. Victoria Azarenka relinquished the #1 ranking because she was defending championship points from winning this tournament in 2012 during her amazing winning streak last year.

Serena tweeted her reaction:
Serena will start her 124th week at #1 on Monday February 18. Congrats, Serena!
