Serena destroys sister Venus to cruise into the final at Charleston
World no.1 Serena Williams presented her sister Venus with her worst loss against her as she annihilated her in just 53 minutes to move into her third successive final at the Family Circle Cup. The superstar never seemed to be out of gear in the duel as she kept on pounding winners at will on the Billie Jean King Court today.

Serena clobbered 16 winners, made just 8 unforced errors, won 5/5 break points and seized 82% of the points on her first serve to accomplish a 6-1, 6-2 victory that will provide her a chance to lift a second trophy in South Carolina. The reigning Wimbledon holder will now meet the winner of the duel between Jelena Jankovic and Stefanie Voegele in tomorrow’s final.

Serena showed no mercy to her big sister Venus as she wrapped up the first set in just 22 minutes. The Serena Express took as soon as she arrived on court and without wasting any time she cruised through the first four games of the contest as Venus was struggling to come up with serves that could have troubled her. The world no.1 was constructing the points beautifully as she was pushing her rival deeper and deeper into the court and also was coming up with acute angles.

Moreover, the Olympics gold medalist’s court coverage had the glimpses of a queen who commands complete authority over her territory and because she was able to control the lengthier exchanges, it was easy pickings for her. Venus, who appeared clueless especially with Serena’s tactic of not providing her with any pace on the returns, turned out to be non-starter in the set. Serena’s dominance can be analysed from the fact that she blasted off 8 winners and committed zero unforced errors.

In contrast to the first set, the second set turned out to be far more competitive, yet it was Serena who outwitted, and overpowered her elder sis. The winner of 48 WTA crowns got that early break in the first game of set no.2 and then broke her sister once more in the 7th game to colllect a 5-2 lead. After a couple of minutes, in the next game she served out  the set and the match with relative ease.
