Serena Williams comes from behind to win the Sony Open

Serena Williams, in a slow start at the Sony Open, dropped the first set in her championship match against Maria Sharapova, but came back and won her record sixth Sony Open championship at the Sony, often referred to as the "Fifth Open."

The crowd roared on every point as Serena won the next two sets, 6-3, 6-0, after dropping the first set. She hit stroked winners all over the court, running down every shot by Sharapova. Serena was no doubt motivated by the fact she is No.1 in the world and has won the Sony a record-setting six times.

With her injured sister, Venus, lending her support after she lost earlier in the tournament, Serena was in top-notch condition. Now 31 years old, Serena is in great condition and will be a tough out as she cherishes her No.1 ranking.
