Serena Williams Opens Miami Campaign Well   |
Key Biscayne, Florida – World #1 and 5-time Sony Open champion Serena Williams made a triumphant return to the WTA today in a 6-1 6-1 demolition of Italian Flavia Pennetta. Serena peppered Pennetta with strong play right from the start and the Italian was unable to keep pace.

Pennetta struggled with a nagging wrist injury for most of 2012 and has only recently begun tournament play in 2013. Serena however was very focused and maintained her lead with emotion and intensity. Despite it being her opening round match, Serena was visibly trying to pump up her energy levels. Some could look at this gesture and think it poor sport however everything was within the rules. Serena said afterward that she was just trying to get more energy because she was playing against a former top 10 player. Waiting for Serena in the third round is Japan’s Ayumi Morita.
