Sharapova will be chasing a rare double


After winning the tournament in Indian Wells, Maria Sharapova will try to do the same in the courts and in Kay Biscayne. By this time in the Open era, only two players who have won two successive championships - Steffi Graf in 1994 and 1996, and Kim Clijsters in 2005.

Over the weekend, Sharapova beat with 6:2, 6:2 over Caroline Wozniacki and will play her first match in Key Biscayne on Friday.

"These tournaments are really hard because they are very close to each other as a time," said the third-seeded in the scheme. "The faster you finish with the first (Indian Wells), the sooner you find yourself here. I will try to achieve a little more this year. "

Sharapova was very close to the rare double in 2006 when he won the tournament in California, but lost the final game in Miami.
