The second-to-last day of the 2013 Australian Open was full of drama and action, as No. 1 seed Victoria Azarenka took to the court to defend her title against the No. 6 seed, Li Na.

These two had history entering this match, as ESPN Stats & Info tells us via Twitter:

On the men's side, twin brothers Mike and Bob Bryan looked to earn their sixth men's doubles title at the Aussie Open vs. Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling.

The ATP World Tour Twitter account helped the Bryan brothers celebrate, tweeting:

So, how did Day 13 turn out?

Let's find out. 

 

Women's Singles Final Score: Day 13

Victoria Azarenka (1) defended her title accordingly, defeating Li Na (6) 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 to win the 2013 Australian Open. 

 

Men's Doubles Final Scores: Day 13

Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan (1) continued their dominance on the men's doubles world, beating Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling 6-3, 6-4 to earn their sixth Aussie Open title.

 

Azarenka Defends Her Title

It took two hours and 40 minutes, but Victoria Azarenka was able to overcome Li Na, who required two medical timeouts during the match.

As the Associated Press (via ESPN) notes, Li Na injured her ankle during the second set and reportedly blacked out in the final set after falling and slamming her head on the court.

Azarenka entered this match with the crowd against her, as her sportsmanship was in question following a medical timeout taken in the semis vs. Sloane Stephens, according to the Miami Herald.

Hopefully Li Na's injury doesn't affect Azarenka's legacy of winning the 2013 title, as the Belarusian undoubtedly earned the Aussie Open crown.

The Women's Tennis Association tweeted out this picture following Azarenka's victory:

It certainly was an impressive showing by the world's No. 1, who now owns two Australian Open titles.

 

Bryan Brothers Continue Dominance in Doubles

There's no better men's doubles combination than Mike and Bob Bryan, who won their sixth doubles Aussie Open championship after beating Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling 6-3, 6-4 in Melbourne.

It was a dominating performance as usual for the brothers, who won in straight sets and won 73 percent of first-serve points. One statistic that really stood out from this match was that the Bryan brothers won 81 percent of second-serve points (h/t Australian Open).

The brothers will look to continue their dominant run at the French Open, where they haven't won since 2003.
