Serena Williams of United States won her final match of WTA tennis championships against Li Na of China at Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 27, 2013.
Serena Williams won the final 2-1 to claim the title of the event.
Chinese tennis player Li Na has beaten former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 6-4, 6-2 to reach the final of the WTA Championships in Istanbul.
According to Sport24, already the first Chinese singles player to win a Grand Slam, and now assured of a season-end highest-ever world ranking of at least number three, Li's latest victory was a reward for positive early groundstroke attacking from both wings and a ratio of unforced errors significantly lower than Kvitova's.
Earlier, Serena Williams also overcame some physical and emotional problems to beat Jelena Jankovic in three sets and set up a final clash with Li.
The WTA Championships in Istanbul is the tour's flagship season-ending tournament.
