Serena Williams Downs Caroline Wozniacki To Advance To US Open Finals

Serena Williams punched her ticket to the 2011 US Open Finals on Saturday night, easily handling No. 1 seed Caroline Wozniacki in straight-sets, 6-2, 6-4. Williams was on her game throughout, while Wozniacki struggled to gain control from the start, and it showed. Williams, however, was crisp, or at least good enough to advance with relative ease.

Wozniacki had just five winners on the night, a number dwarfed by her 11 unforced errors. She was just two of five on break points, had just one ace on the match and looked over-powered at times as Williams took over early and pulled away.

On the other side of the court, Williams finished with 34 winners, but also had 34 unforced errors on the match. She also had 11 aces to four double faults and converted five of 11 breaks points in the straight-set win.

Williams will face Samantha Stosur, a winner in three sets over Angelique Kerber in the other semifinal, for the 2011 US Open championship.
