Up next for Serena Williams after winning year ending WTA Championship title?

The only question going into this year's WTA Championship was not if Serena Williams would win, but by how much? The answer was a uneven 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory over China's Li Na.

Williams' fourth season finale title was the latest in a stellar 2013 that was part of a 78-4 match record by the number one ladies player which included two Grand Slams trophies at the French Open and the U.S.Open.

Besides pocketing over a record breaking 12 million dollars, Williams' Grand Slam total is now 17 which is right behind 18 by Martina Navratolva and Chris Evert. In sight would also be the 22 Slams by Steffi Graf and the top would be 24 held by Margaret Court.

Now at 32 years old and 18 seasons, it would seems like a challenge, but Serena has showed no signs of slowing up. Before the WTA Championships in Istanbul began, Williams said she feels like she could still be playing in ten years.

The champions before Williams have showed some longevity. Navaratolova went 20 years before retiring the first time and Evert did 18 years before bowing out at age 34. Graf got out of tennis before she was 30 years old.

“I am interested for next year to take my game to a new level, which I think I can do,” said Williams.

A new level? After this year, the rest of the women tennis players better be worried.
