Top-seeded Wimbledon Champion Serena Williams hardly broke sweat as she walked past Romanian Sorana Cirstea in the semifinal of the Bank of West Classic tournament here in Stanford, CA. She finally won her match 6-1,
What an opening set it was for the World No.4 and the defending champion. She played tennis that one associates only with Serena, being dominant and imposing herself on her opponent. She looked to have finally shrugged off her jet lag. She broke serve twice in that set first in the fourth game and the sixth game. The writing already seemed to be on the wall for Sorana. Serena arrowed 3 aces and won 80 percent of the points on her first serve.
The second set started on even terms, with both the players holding serve comfortably in the opening four games. Cirstea seemed to have recovered well. But that little ray of sunshine was short lived as in the very next game the American broke and broke comfortably. She then held her own serve and looked dominant on her opponent's finally closing the set 6-2.
