World No. 2 Sharapova led by a set and a break before world No. 1 Serena Williams battled back, capturing the final 10 games on her way to a 4-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory in Saturday's WTA Miami hardcourt final.
Williams won her sixth Miami crown and denied Sharapova her first Miami title, dropping the Russian to 0-5 in Miami finals. Williams has beaten Sharapova 11 times in a row and leads their overall rivalry 12-2.
