Williams comes back to win Miami Sony Open

WORLD No.1 Serena Williams has made history in Miami, becoming only the fourth woman in the modern game to win the same event six times.

Chris Evert, Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova are the others to hold that distinction.

Williams came from a set and a break down to beat Maria Sharapova in the final of the Sony Open 4-6 6-3 6-0.

The 31-year-old took her winning streak to 11 against Sharapova after taking 10 straight games to consign the Russian world No.2 to her fifth defeat in the Sony Open final.
