Serena Williams Easily Advances To Semifinals At Olympics

You may have expected that Serena Williams would have to work a little harder than she had up to this point when facing Denmark’s Caroline Wozniaki in the quarterfinals on Thursday; you could not be more wrong. Serena crushed the former world number one 6-0, 6-3 and will advance to the semifinals.

Williams continued her dominance at Wimbledon as she didn’t face a single break point during the match and barely broke a sweat. Serena put up 30 winners to Wozniaki’s seven, and in the first set Wozniaki only managed one single winner.

Serena will face the tournament’s top seed, Victoria Azarenka of Belgium, in the semis. The two met in the semifinals at this same venue less than a month ago, when Williams defeated Azarenka at Wimbledon 6-3, 7-6. Azarenka advanced to the Olympic semis on Thursday by defeating Germany’s Angelique Kerber 6-4, 7-5.
