Serena Williams rolls into Miami fourth round

Despite how easily she turned the tables, Williams said she respected Morita's game. Williams who currently shares the record of five Miami titles with German great Steffi Graf, next faces 13th-seeded Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Romina Oprandi.

Miami, Florida: World No. 1 Serena Williams was rolling Saturday, even before she got to her third-round match against Ayumi Morita at the Miami ATP Masters and WTA hardcourt tournament.

The American, seeking a record sixth Miami WTA crown, resorted to some unfamiliar transportation -- a bicycle -- to beat the traffic into Key Biscayne and make her match.

"The traffic was crazy and everyone was like, I have been here for an hour and I'm staying like eight minutes away," Williams said. "They were in the traffic for an hour. I'm like, 'OK, I'm not going to make my match if I don't get there.'"
