Player of the week: Serena Williams

Miami tournament is always very special for Serena Williams, as she usually produces some of her best tennis here. This year's victory means Serena's 5th title in Miami, following her victories in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Last year she defeated Justine Henin, who was dominating women's circuit at that time, in the final, with an incredible comeback from 6/0 down to take the match in the third set.

This year they were drawed to an exciting quarter-final. But there was no emotion at all, as Serena just passed over a weak Henin by 6/2 6/0. Serena was then considered the main favourite for the title, but there were still two though battles to win. In the semis, Serena really had to fight to come back from a set down and defeat world's #3 Svetlana Kuznetsova 3/6 7/5 6/3. And in the final Serena also needed a third set to overcome #4 Jelena Jankovic.
Once again, Serena has showed in Miami that if she's focused and healthy, she's almost unbeatable.
