The Associated Press reports:
With Key Biscayne’s main road in a snarl Saturday night, Williams borrowed a bike at her hotel, rode to her match and beat Ayumi Morita in the third round of the Sony Open.
Williams match was scheduled to start at 8 p.m., and she learned about the gridlock before leaving her hotel.
“The traffic was crazy and everyone was like, ‘I have been here for an hour, and I’m staying like eight minutes away,’” Williams said. “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.’”
