Serena Williams and Li Na put on a show in the Sony Open final, with Serena once again reigning supreme for her seventh title in Miami. Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic laid down a statement win over Rafael Nadal in the men's final to complete the Indian Wells/Miami double for the second time.

The upshot of it all? Williams and Djokovic are still the best hard-court players in the game.

But before we move on to the clay-court season, here's a look at some of the best photos from the final weekend of the spring hard-court season (no offense, Monterrey Open!):
