Serena Williams

 World number one Serena Williams won the Miami WTA title for the seventh time Saturday with a 7-5, 6-1 win over China’s Li Na, AFP reports.

In a battle of the world’s top two players, the US superstar took her tally of WTA titles to 59 – including 17 Grand Slam triumphs. She added a second trophy in 2014 to the one she lifted in Brisbane in January.

The 32-year-old Williams, who first played at Miami as a 16-year-old, was strangely subdued as she seemed to sleepwalk through the first half hour of the match.

Trailing 4-2, she fought off three break points in the seventh game only to surrender her serve for a second time on a double fault.
