Victoria Azarenka (left) claimed her second major by successfully defending her title at the Australian Open, defeating Li Na in the final. Serena Williams won her second French Open title, defeating defending champion Maria Sharapova in the final, after which she went on to win her fifth title at the US Open, defeating Azarenka in the final, and increasing her total singles Grand Slam titles to seventeen, just one short of both Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. Marion Bartoli won her first major at Wimbledon, defeating first time Grand Slam finalist Sabine Lisicki, thus becoming the first French player to win a Major since Amélie Mauresmo in 2006. Bartoli would go on the retire from tennis only 6 weeks later at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Statistical information

[edit]
World No. 1 doubles team of Sara Errani (left) and Roberta Vinci (right), winner of eight titles in 2012, dominated the doubles field in early 2013, picking up three titles in two months, including a third Grand Slam trophy at the Australian Open (def. Barty/Dellacqua).[2]

These tables present the number of singles (S), doubles (D), and mixed doubles (X) titles won by each player and each nation during the season, within all the tournament categories of the 2013 WTA Tour: the Grand Slam tournaments, the year-end championships (the WTA Tour Championships and the Tournament of Champions), the WTA Premier tournaments (Premier Mandatory, Premier 5, and regular Premier), and the WTA International tournaments.[3] The players/nations are sorted by: 1) total number of titles (a doubles title won by two players representing the same nation counts as only one win for the nation); 2) cumulated importance of those titles (one Grand Slam win equalling two Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 wins, one year-end championships win equalling one-and-a-half Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win, one Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win equalling two Premier wins, one Premier win equalling two International wins); 3) a singles > doubles > mixed doubles hierarchy; 4) alphabetical order (by family names for players).
