Over the weekend, Serena Williams swung her way to her sixth Sony Open title, solidifying herself as the number one tennis player in the world.
On Saturday, Serena Williams celebrated beating out her Russian opponent Maria Sharapova to win the Sony Open at Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne, Florida.
With her sixth win, Serena now holds the record for the most Sony Open victories by a female. She gushed to the crowd, ‘I felt good today. It’s so good to be No. 6 now – I mean, the six-time – oh, gosh. Thank you.”
Despite coming out on top, Serena admitted it wasn’t her best performance. ‘
“Ever since Venus and Serena Williams started playing in tennis tournaments, they’ve provoked strong reactions – from awe and admiration to suspicion and resentment. They’ve been winning championships for over a decade, pushing the limits of longevity in such a demanding sport. How long can they last? In Venus & Serena, we gain unprecedented access into their lives during the most intimidating year of their career. Over the course of 2011, Venus grappled with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease while Serena battled back from a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Neither Venus nor Serena let their adversities hold them back. They drew their greatest strength from each other.”
