Serena Williams needs only one more win to become world number one for the first time in two-and-a-half years after reaching the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open in double quick time on Thursday. 

Serena Williams of the US serves the ball to Poland's Urszula Radwanska during their WTA Qatar Open tennis match on February 14, 2013 in the Qatari capital, Doha. Williams won the match 6-0, 6-3.

It took the 15-time Grand Slam title winner less than an hour to complete a 6-0, 6-3 win over Urszula Radwanska, the world number 37 from Poland, and to take herself to the brink of another remarkable achievement.
