KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) — Serena Williams won her eighth Key Biscayne title Saturday and remained unbeaten this year by drubbing Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-0 in the final of the Miami Open.
Williams became the fourth woman to win the same WTA event at least eight times. Martina Navratilova won Chicago 12 times, the most titles by a woman at any tournament.
The top-ranked Williams claimed her second title this year. She won her 19th Grand Slam championship at the Australian Open in January, and has now won 12 consecutive finals.
Williams improved to 18-0 this year. She withdrew before the Indian Wells semifinal last month with a knee injury but quickly recovered.
Williams is 73-7 at Key Biscayne, where she has won her past 18 matches.
