When you go to Miami you get the best tennis players in the world, the best weather in the United States this time of year and a large dose of celebrity, crossing the lines between Hollywood and sport.

This stage could not have been more dramatic with Belgium's former World No. 1 Kim Clijsters needing just 58 minutes to dismiss an error-prone Venus Williams 6-2, 6-1 to win her second Sony Ericsson Open title in Miami Saturday.

Backing up from her third-set tie-break win over countrywoman Justine Henin on Thursday night, Clijsters was in sparkling form, dictating play with her crisp ground strokes. Williams, saying that she was "my own worst enemy today," sprayed 30 unforced errors and threw in double faults at crucial stages to drop serve.

Fernando Gonzalez, Andy Roddick, Jim Courier, and Gustavo Kuerten came together on the purple courts of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami for a fun-filled night of tennis, but with a serious focus.
