Serena Williams made a dramatic return to Indian Wells and won an eighth Miami Open title - for that reason she has been voted March's WTA Player Of The Month.
WTA Staff

World No.1 Serena Williams had a month she will never forget, sttarting with her return to Indian Wells for the first time since 2001.

It was an emotional comeback for Serena to the desert, but after her first match she regained her World No.1 form. The two-time BNP Paribas Open champion advanced to the semifinals where she was set to face Simona Halep, but unfortunately had to withdraw with a knee injury.

Williams entered Miami on a 12-match win streak in Key Biscayne, but was unsure how her knee would hold up this year. The American did not drop a set en route to the quarterfinals where she would edge Sabine Lisicki in three sets and then battle past Simona Halep a thrilling semifinal. Williams would storm past Carla Suárez Navarro, dropping just two games to capture her third straight and eighth overall Miami Open title.

Following Miami, Williams shot back to No.1 on the Road To Singapore leaderboard.

For that reason, Serena has been voted March's WTA Player Of The Month.

What were her thoughts on another record-breaking fortnight in Miami?

"It feels really good to have eight under my belt. Can't say I thought I would win eight, especially in the beginning of the tournament."
