Sharapova seeks elusive Miami title

by: Matt Cronin March 25, 2013

Maria Sharapova tells reporters that she would like to win Miami, one of the few big North American titles that has eluded her. Sharapova, who has resided in the United States for the past 18 years, has won the U.S. Open, Indian Wells, Cincinnati, San Diego (when it was a Tier 1), and has been a runner-up at the Canadian Open. She has been a runner-up at Miami on four occasions, including last year, when she lost to Agnieszka Radwanska.

“It’s in the back of my mind because I would love to be the champion here,” she said. “It’s one of the biggest tournaments for us and it’s one that I have the most consistent at being in four finals but yet not winning it yet. I would definitely love to go a step further here.”
