American tennis star Serena Williams has indeed showed her prowess in the game and with her claim on age more like a boost to her ability.

After an eighth Miami Open title, Serena Williams feels she is getting better as she gets older.

The 33-year-old’s 66th WTA Tour title was in her trophy cabinet
after a 6-2 6-0 thrashing of Carla Suarez Navarro in the decider of
the WTA Premier event.

Williams has an 18-0 match record in 2015, but was forced to pull out of her BNP Paribas Open semi-final
in Indian Wells due to injury – the only blot on her season.

The world number one said she might even be getting better.

“I’d like to believe the older I get, the better I get,” the American said. Williams hinted the remnants of the injury that curtailed her title bid in Indian Wells – a knee issue – had bothered her earlier in the tournament.

“It feels really good to have eight under my belt,” Williams said.

“Can’t say I thought I would win eight, especially in the beginning of the week. It just feels really weird.”

But with injuries becoming more frequent in her veteran years, Williams also knows she will not play
forever.

When asked if she thought she could match Martina Navratilova’s 12 Miami titles, Williams replied: “I
hope not. I would be how old? No, let’s pray that I don’t get to 12.”
