Serena thrashes US teen to advance at Miami


MIAMI: Serena Williams crushed a teenaged talent less than half her age Sunday (Monday in Manila) to reach the fourth round of the ATP and WTA Miami Open, defeating American Catherine Bellis 6-1, 6-1. The 15-year-old US challenger was no match for the 33-year-old American, a 19-time grand slam champion who is bidding for a record eighth trophy at her home event. Top-seed Williams will next face Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova, a winner over German 13th seed Angelique Kerber 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
