The US open women's semifinal match with world number one ranked player Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark was supposed to be a tough test for Serena Williams, who hasn't dropped a set in this tournament.
But when Serena is on a roll like she is in this tournament, it doesn't matter who is the opponent is or what her seeding is as she steamrolled the top seeded Wozniacki in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 to move to just a win away from her 14th Grand Slam title and her first US Open title since 2008.
"I'm still No. 1 in the ranking and still No. 1 in the race," Wozniacki
said. "No one can take that away from me right now. Serena played great
today. She's a great champion and I wish her well."
Yeah, but how long are you going to hold that Number one ranking Caroline, especially since you can't seem to win a Grand Slam tournament in the process?
28th seeded Little Sis will face number 9 seeded Samantha Stosur of Australia in a few hours. She beat Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-3,2-6, 6-2 to reach her second Grand Slam tournament final. Stosur also has the not so fond memory of being beaten 6-4, 6-2 by Serena in straight sets last month in the Toronto Cup final.
Serena is not only 18-0 on hardcourts this year, she has a 4-2 series lead in matches played against Stosur.
Should be fun to watch. Go Serena!
