Florida — Victoria Azarenka completed a rare Indian Wells-Key Biscayne double Saturday by beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-2 to win the Miami Open.

Azarenka, a two-time Grand Slam champion mounting a comeback from injuries, defeated Serena Williams in the Indian Wells final two weeks ago. She's only the third woman to win both tournaments in the same year, and the first since Kim Clijsters in 2005. Steffi Graf did it in 1994 and 1996.

Seeded 13th, Azarenka swept every set in her six matches to earn her third Key Biscayne title and her first since 2011. A former No. 1 player, she fell out of the top 30 in 2014 because of foot and thigh injuries, but will be back in the top five next week.

Azarenka improved to 22-1 this year.
