Serena Williams is a daunting opponent no matter the surface or tournament, but at the Sony Open, played near the comforts of her Miami home, she has practically set up a second residence in the winner's circle.Williams, who lives an hour's drive from the tennis center at Crandon Park, site of the Sony Open for the next fortnight, is a six-time winner in Miami. That is more wins than she has at any other tournament and one better than her five U.S. Open, Wimbledon and Australian Open grand slam victories.It is on the court where Williams does most of her business, and in Miami it is close to a tennis monopoly.That will be unwelcome news for the rest of the players on the WTA Tour as they try to loosen the Williams sisters' vice-like grip on the Miami trophy.
