JUMP: Five-time champion Serena Williams advanced Tuesday to the Sony Open semi-finals and tied the women’s record for career victories in the tournament by beating No. 5-seeded Li Na 6-3, 7-6 (5).
The top-ranked Williams overcame six double-faults and rallied in the second set from a 5-2 deficit. She hit six winners in the tiebreaker, including a forehand passing shot cross-court on the final point.
When Williams smacked a winner on match point she jumped for joy cannonball-style, knees high and fist raised.
