Here are some of the matches you loved this year...
My favorite match of 2013 was the French Open final between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. It was great to see Serena's emotion after winning the French again, 11 years after her first one.
Simona Halep versus Kvitova in the New Haven final.
Samantha and Duval.
Bartoli against everyone at Wimbledon. Focused and ruthless in every match.
My favourite match had to be Venus defeating Simona Halep in Tokyo. The in-form Halep was red-hot favourite to win but Venus found her vintage groundstrokes and volleys from somewhere when she needed them; just like a champion. Her excellent semifinal finish means she's still a force to be reckoned with come 2014.

Venus beating Vika! Loved it.
Radwanska-Lisicki (Wimbledon semifinals).
My favourite match of the year is the match between Serena Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova in the French Open quarterfinals, where I thought it would be a repeat of the loss of Serena to Svetlana during the quarterfinals in the same Open way back in 2009, where Svetlana eventually emerged as the winner of the Open...
Serena vs Petra in Doha.
Kirilenko-Kerber in Monterrey, Kirilenko-Radwanska in Indian Wells and Kirilenko-Lisicki in Pattaya.
Halep beating Ivanovic in Sofia after being 3-0 down in the last set and winning 6-3 in the end.
Top 5, in no particular order:
Istanbul, SF: Williams def. Jankovic, 64 26 64.
Miami, F: Williams def. Sharapova, 46 63 60.
Aussie Open, F: Azarenka def. Li, 46 64 63.
Cincinnati, SF: Azarenka def. Jankovic, 46 62 63.
Dubai, F: Kvitova def. Errani, 62 16 61
~ Sam, Singapore
