Serena Williams wins Sony Open

Serena Williams captured the Sony Open title in Miami on Sunday, defeating China’s Li Na 7-5, 6-1.

The win marks the seventh time Williams was won the tournament. Speaking with reporters after her match, she said it felt great to dominate at a tournament so close to her home:

“I was actually super excited at the end, because I remember sitting here last year trying to get to six, obviously I wanted seven but I don’t want to put the pressure on myself to get to seven. I wanted to have the most titles here.

 

“I guess that I’ve grown up coming to this tournament as a kid, watching so many players and to be one of those players now is really, really awesome for me.”

As she said, Williams now owns the most Sony Open titles in tennis history, breaking the tie she shared with Andre Agassi.
