Early on in the Sony Open Tennis final the World No.2 looked like the best player in the world.
Serena Williams, the World No.1, was getting overpowered by Li Na and fell behind by a lot - 5-2...
But that's when she summoned her inner legend.
Her serve picked up, her groundstrokes started biting more and she kept fighting and fighting...
Williams won 11 of the next 12 games to run away with it against Li in straight sets, 75 61.
It was a dream ending for the World No.1 in a dream final featuring the Top 2 players in the world.
Williams told the crowd afterwards it was their chants of 'Go Serena' that helped her turn it around.
She also praised her fellow multiple Grand Slam champion Li for her game and determination.
A lot of them have been tough, but Williams has now won 10 in a row against Li - she's 11-1 overall.
Williams now has seven Sony Open Tennis titles - more than anyone in the tournament's history.
And she carried that pose to the beach for the traditional Sony Open Tennis champion trophy shoot.
Williams will now mosey on over to Charleston to go for her fourth Family Circle Cup crown.
