Serena Williams on 21 July 2013 won Swedish Open title by defeating Johanna Larsson in the final of the Swedish Open at Bastad in Sweden.

The win is her 53rd WTA title and 51st match win of the year. She defeated Johanna Larsson with a 6-4, 6-1 success.

The 24-year-old Johanna Larsson broke to lead 3-1 in the first set before Williams bounced back to 3-3. Larsson proceeded to 4-3 before losing to the American's strong serve and losing the next three games.

Serena Williams is 16-time Grand Slam winner, and was knocked out in the fourth round of Wimbledon by Germany’s Sabine Lisicki, who went on to lose to Marion Bartoli of France in the final. Williams dominated the second set, breaking Larsson's serve twice.

It is important here to note that, Williams also defeated 76th-ranked Larsson in their only previous match in the Fed Cup earlier this year.
