Serena Williams has much to smile about as she took home her 7th Sony Open trophy on Saturday, March 29. The prodigious athlete proved once again that she was the better opponent against Chinese tennis star Li Na.
With this win under her belt, Serena now holds the record for most Sony Open victories, surmounting renowned tennis player Andre Agassi.
The tennis champ credited her fans for pulling her through her win saying, “It was like, ‘Oh my gosh, if I can just hang in here and just try to enjoy myself. Honestly the crowd pulled me through. I heard some fans go, ‘Go Serena.’” A lucky fan was even gifted Serena’s shoes after the win. She posted a pic of herself shoeless with her trainer and captioned it, “With my trainer @mackieshilstone after the match. I gave my fans my shoes! #7.”
