Serena overtakes the #1 ranking
Friday, 15 February 2013 18:27

She has done it!   With her victory over Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinals at the Qatar Total Open, Serena Williams will become the #1 player in the world when new rankings are released on Monday.

It wasn't without fight for Serena Williams tonight, who was down 1-4 in the final set to Kvitova, before coming back to win the match 3:6, 6:3, 7:5.

Serena offered an emotional on-court interview following her victory.  In tears, Serena acknowledged the crowd, and how much she appreciated their support for her when she was down in the match, a type of support she admitted doesn't occur too often.  Serena also admitted that she didn't think she would ever get back to the top of the rankings, considering everything she has gone through.

You have done it, Girl!  Congratulations!  She will face Maria Sharapova in the semifinals tomorrow.
