Serena Williams is still on course to win her calendar grand slam (winning all four grand slams in a calendar year) and not even her big sister, Venus Williams could stop her.
Serena Williams broke Venus early in the first set and was able to run away with the set winning it 6-2. Venus however came back strongly in the second set and was able to run into a 6-1 victory to set up a final set after Serena had uncharacteristically made a lot of unforced errors in the second set. In the third set, both Venus and Serena Williams sent in some big serves but an early break by Serena allowed her to run away with the match as Venus could hardly keep up with the power play of Serena despite all her technical ability.
It was an emotional event for both sisters as their period of dominance slowly comes to an end with both sisters entering the twilight of their careers. Serena Williams is doing hers with a bang as she gets set to play unseeded Roberta Vinci in the semifinals and would be looking to become the first woman since Steffi Graffe to win all four major grand slams in one calendar year in 1988
