Miami traffic was so bad this weekend that Serena Williams didn’t know if she’d be able to get to her Sony Open match in time.The world No. 1 was scheduled to play Ayumi Morita at 7 p.m. on Saturday night but realized she was going to have trouble making it the few miles from her hotel to the tennis facilities at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne.She said: “The traffic was crazy and everyone was like, `I have been here for an hour, and I’m staying like eight minutes away. I’m like, `OK, I’m not going to make my match.’“So I asked for a golf cart, and the hotel didn’t have a golf cart. Then they were like, `We have a motor bike.’ I’m like, `I don’t do motor bikes.’ They said, `We have a bicycle.’ I said, `I really don’t do bicycles, but I will today.”Thankfully, Serena wasn’t in such a hurry that she couldn’t pose for a photo that she tweeted to her 3.5 million followers.The pre-match biking didn’t seem to have any ill-effect on Serena. She defeated Morita 6-3, 6-3.“It was fun,” she said. “It was probably one of my best memories I think ever, riding a bike to a match. That’s pretty cool.”
