Serena Williams waited out a 45-minute rain interruption Saturday before defeating France's Caroline Garcia 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 to advance at the ATP and WTA Miami Masters.
The world number one's progress was temporarily halted in the fifth game of the final set when a passing shower stopped play.
But after the pause, top seed Williams emerged with her third career victory against her 74th-ranked rival to reach the fourth round at the hardcourt event.
Williams, 32, bidding for a record seventh title at her home tournament, now stands 63-7 at the venue.
