WTA Champs stats prove it’s Serena’s title to lose

ImageSerena Williams is by far the form girl heading into next week’s WTA Championship finals in Istanbul, where the top eight players in the world meet at the curtain call event of the year.

With six tour titles adding to her Wimbledon, US Open and Olympics crowns this year, Williams has proven she is more than capable of continuing her dominance of the women’s game despite her lack of tour events.

Indeed, so good has Williams been that she heads into the WTA Championships with a 9-1 aggregate score over her seven other opponents. Only world number five Angelique Kerber has overcome Williams this season, and that was with the German playing above even her wildest expectations to win 6-4 6-4.

Williams should have no fear playing against Kerber or any of the other competitors in Turkey however, for her power and resilience on court has proved the crucial point in grinding down weaker opponents. Her 6-0 6-1 demolition of Maria Sharapova at London 2012 proved just how focussed Williams is and despite being up against the best in the women’s game she should have no problems bypassing the early rounds this October.

The full list of qualified competitors for the WTA Championships:

1) Victoria Azarenka – 10,190 points

2) Maria Sharapova – 9,115 points

3) Serena Williams – 7,900 points

4) Agnieszka Radwanska – 7,095 points

5) Angelique Kerber – 5,470 points

6) Petra Kvitova – 5,215 points

7) Sara Errani – 4,855 points

8) Li Na – 4,726 points
