Serena Williams beats Caroline Wozniacki at Rogers Cup

Serena Williams beats Caroline Wozniacki in three sets to set up Rogers Cup semi-final with sister venus

Serena Williams extended her Rogers Cup winning streak to 14 matches by defeating Caroline Wozniacki 4-6 7-5 7-5 to reach the semi-finals in Montreal.

Wozniacki took the first set before Williams began to find her form and wrapped up victory in two hours 41 minutes.

“I was making a lot of unforced errors in general,” said Williams. “But I just thought: ‘Just keep fighting. Hopefully I can just hold on and hold on, try to break, keep going for each shot.’

“I just never wanted to stop and tried to do the best that I could.”

The world No1 will now take on sister Venus for a place in the final having won their last five meetings.

“I definitely don’t like playing her,” Serena Williams said. “I think I’ve lost to her more than anyone on the tour, so it’s definitely not a fun match.

“She’s tough. She has a great serve. She runs every ball down. She has a great backhand. She hits winners off the forehand. She does everything well so it’s not an ideal match-up for anyone, to be honest.”
