Despite losing her 11th consecutive match to Serena Williams in the Miami final, Maria Sharapova says she will one day again upend the American.

"Today I certainly played a lot better and had my chances," she told reporters. "There's no reason why I couldn't win. I was playing well -- not well enough to win the match, obviously, but it was a step in the right direction, and there's no doubt we'll be playing many more times, and there's no doubt I'll be able to beat her."
