Serena Williams advanced to the U.S. Open tennis final to face Victoria Azarenka after cruising to another straight sets victory. Williams has yet to drop a set the entire tournament and has lost a total of only 19 games. Her latest opponent was Italy's Sara Errani and Errani had a large amount of praise for her afterwards:
"Given that men are always quick to say women are a lot worse ... I'd love to see her play in a (lower-level) men's tournament and see how they deal with her. It's easy to talk. On the court, it would be different," the 10th-seeded Sara Errani said.
The top-seeded Azarenka reached the final after defeating Maria Sharapova in three sets. Sharapova took the first set, 6-3, but Azarenka rebounded to take the final two, 6-2 and 6-4.
The men's semifinal matches will take place on Saturday. Andy Murray will face Tomas Berdych in the first match and in the second, Novak Djokovic will take on David Ferrer.
